A man in China was rushed to a hospital after he reportedly inserted 29 magnetic balls in his penis, one by one.
The man, who was not named by the authorities, reportedly had blood in his urine for 10 days after placing the tiny metal balls.
He was rushed to No.2 People’s Hospital in the city of Xi’an, which is located in Shaanxi Province of Central China.
Specialists had to carry out a CT Scan on him to know what had happened.
Urologist Qu Li-ming said that the magnetic beads had gathered in a big cluster inside the bladder of the patient.
As a result, the doctors had to perform an operation.
Dr. Li-Ming said:
The patient said he was peeing blood frequently and with pain and complained of pain in his lower abdomen. He explained to me that he had inserted 29 beads inside his penis one by one.
The doctor said that the beads got stuck together like a long stick.
They also slid into the bladder along the urethra.
Dr. Li-Ming added:
There is calcification on the surface of these beads, meaning it had stayed in the body for a long period of time. The man is in a stable condition but will remain in hospital for further treatment.
The man is reportedly recovering from the surgery.
