Doc­tors re­move skip­ping rope from man’s ure­thra

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - Culled from

A mid­dle-aged man had a skip­ping rope suc­cess­fully re­moved from his blad­der and ure­thra af­ter he had in­serted it for sex­ual plea­sure, a news­pa­per re­ported yes­ter­day.

A urol­o­gist sur­named Dong in Yichang City, Hubei Prov­ince, said the surgery was com­pli­cated be­cause the green plas­tic skip­ping rope had knot­ted, ac­cord­ing to Sanxia Busi­ness Daily. The skip­ping rope was 1.1-me­ters long and 4.4-mil­lime­ters thick. Dong was quoted as say­ing that what the man had done was “ridicu­lous” be­cause he put his own life at risk.

The man in his for­ties found it too hard to pull out the skip­ping rope af­ter he had in­serted it. He turned to doc­tors when it be­came painful and dif­fi­cult to uri­nate, the re­port said.

An X-ray showed a rope with four knots stuck in the nar­row­est part of his ure­thra with 10 cen­time­ters dan­gling out of the ure­thral open­ing, the re­port said.

A doc­tor sur­named Zhang told the news­pa­per surgery was nec­es­sary be­cause doc­tors couldn’t pull it out force­fully. Do­ing so would have led to se­ri­ous bleed­ing and an in­fec­tion, the doc­tor said.
