MAN ACCIDENTALLY EATS A TOOTHPICK, HAS NO CLUE, GETS MONTHS OF RECTAL PAIN
So sometimes when bad things happen, you just want to put them behind you. But what about when you put them behind you, yet they totally stay with you? And in a bad way, to butt. I mean, to boot. Because that’s what one Japanese man experienced for months. The 67-year-old man had been suffering from pain for months in his back and leg. And by back and leg, I mean his left butt cheek and his thigh below it. At first, doctors just couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Butt then, in the end, they finally nailed down what was wrong. The man had a stuck toothpick in his rectum. That’s what you call rectal pain. Normally I’d say let that sink in. It was an accidental toothpick.
AN MRI MADE DOCTORS THINK IT WAS NEUROPATHY, BUTT MADE STUNNING RECTAL TOOTHPICK DICSOVERY
So initially, doctors did MRI scans which led them to believe that the man had stenosis in his lower back. So they planned to do surgery to help alleviate the man’s pain and improve his condition. That means the pain was pretty serious. But then, just before doing surgery, they did a CT scan to get a clearer picture before they cut him open. That’s when the surprise came to light. A toothpick in his rectum. And we’re talking about 7 centimeters of wood in this poor man’s ass. Evidently, somehow, the man had swallowed the toothpick months before by accident.
AFTER MRI, CT SCAN AND SURGICAL REMOVAL, TOOTHPICK FREE MAN NOW PAIN FREE
So I for one think that’s just crazy. How do you swallow a 7 centimeter toothpick and have no idea? And then digest the damn thing thru your gut without pain or injury? Well, not all the way thru, clearly. That’s like Gandalf’s staff, saying, “You, shall not pass!” Ouch. Just 6 days after the woody discovery, the pain in the man’s’ leg got much, much worse. So doctors went in fast to get it out. Fortunately for the Japanese man, once the toothpick was gone, his pain went away. So if you’ve got some random pains down there and regularly use toothpicks, you may have a bad woody.
