You may want to make sure you’ve not just eaten before watching this disgusting footage!
The video below shows a live eel being removed from a patient’s body during an operation. The eel is clearly still alive and is wriggling around as it’s extracted.
The footage appears to have emerged from a recent case that’s been spreading around the world involving a man with constipation.
The 49 year old Chinese man is said to have almost died after he tried a folk remedy to relieve his constipation by shoving an eel into his bum.
As you can imagine his stance remedy started to cause him severe stomach pain and was eventually forced to ask doctors to help remove the eel which measured around half a metre in length.
