Nooo. A 32-year-old man underwent surgery in Shenzhen after he’d inserted an earphone wire into his urethra and it got stuck inside his body, Guangzhou Daily reports. And this time, it wasn’t a sex thing.
The patient, surnamed Luo, showed up at the Shenzhen Shuguang Hospital seeking medical treatment for a urinary tract infection, but initially failed to tell doctors about the headphone cable that he’d inserted up in there himself as a “home remedy”, The Nanfang relays.
Xu Chang, vice-head of the hospital, said that Luo had suffered from numerous urinary tract infections. Apparently, the man performed this makeshift procedure on himself several times after a friend recommended the idea to him. On the (god, we hope) last occasion, however, something went terribly awry.
Luckily for Luo, the 45-centimeter-long cable was removed from his body after a 20 minute surgery on May 21. At this point, it had already managed to wrap itself around a urinary tract stone.
Obviously, Dr. Xu is urging men not to jam cables up their penises when they’re experiencing some sort of infection. Now let us never speak of it again.
