A man had a mobile phone charger removed from his bladder after ramming into his penis for sexual pleasure, it was reported.
The 30-year-old man reportedly initially told doctors in India that he had accidentally swallowed the two foot mobile charger.
But tests and scans failed to locate it until an X-Ray on the operating table revealed the wire was in urinary bladder,the Hindustan Times reports.
Stunned surgeon Walliul Islam, who removed it in Guwahati, India, told the paper: “The patient came to us with severe abdomen pain and told us that he consumed a cable by mistake.
“We examined his stool and conducted an endoscopy as well but couldn’t find the cable."
"When we operated him, there was nothing in his gastrointestinal tract. We could have done away with the surgery if he had told us the truth.”
Dr. Islam said the embarrassed patient had a habit of inserting cables and “other stuff” through his penis for sexual pleasure."
“It’s a type of masturbation called urethral sounding, which is the insertion of an object or liquid into the urethra,” said the senior consultant surgeon.
“The person had come to us five days after he inserted the cable. He repeatedly told us he consumed it through his mouth and we never imagined an adult would lie about such a thing.”
The surgeon said the man had no known psychological problems.
