Guwahati: In an unusual case, a mobile charger cord was found in the 30-year-old man the urinary bladder of a 30-year-old man in Guwahati.

The man, had reportedly approached the doctor complaining of severe abdominal pain after accidentally swallowing a mobile headphone. However during the course of surgery, the doctor failed to detect the cord in the gastrointestinal tract. Subsequently, an X-ray was done and doctors were shocked to find the mobile charger cord in his urinary bladder.

The cord was taken out successfully and the patient is recovering.

Later in a Facebook post Dr Walliul Islam, a consultant surgeon said: “Surprises in Surgery! After 25 years of experience in surgery, I continue to be surprised and shocked by instances like this where my intellectual and surgical skills are challenged… A 30-year old man came to me with complaints of abdomen pain and history of accidental ingestion of headphones. I operated upon him to find nothing in his gastrointestinal tract… But instead discovered a mobile phone charger cord in his urinary bladder ….all of you must have guessed the entry point and route (it entered through his penile urethra to his urinary bladder)… his mental health remains a question… surgery was successful and the patient is recovering… everything is possible on this earth, indeed !”

The patient was said to be in the habit of inserting objects through his penis to have sexual enjoyment. Dr. Islam said the act is called urethral masturbation or urethral sounding.

The doctor told mediapersons that if the patient had revealed the truth instead of lying to them the surgery could have been avoided.
