Did you wake up this morning thinking life was horrible and there’s nobody out there who has it worse than you? Your wife hates you. Kids hate you. Employer wants to fire you. Your truck won’t start. It could be worse, like a leech swimming up your penis and drinking a pint of blood before doctors could go in and yanking it right back through your urinary meatus.
That’s right, yanked that bad boy right back through. Let that sink in for a moment. Your day just got better, right? Let’s get to the ridiculous details on this ordeal from Cambodia. Never go river swimming in Cambodia. Let this serve as your last warning.
Doctors in Cambodia recently removed a leech that, in wince-worthy fashion, had entered an elderly man’s penis while he was swimming and drank a full pint of blood.
The unnamed patient first knew something was awry after experiencing severe pain while trying to use the bathroom, reports Viral Press. He wound up at a hospital in Phnom Penh, where a tiny camera was inserted into his penis, which revealed the culprit to be a leech.
To safely extract the vile visitor, doctors were forced to use a tiny probe with electric nodes and cutting tools at the end to kill the leech before yanking it back out the way it came in.
That’s right, sounds absolutely horrible. I need you to go out there and attack the day. Your commute doesn’t suck. Your wife hasn’t divorced you yet. The kids haven’t changed their last names and your buddy Chuck can get the truck running again. When your mind starts wandering off to bad places, always think back to the guy who had a leech sucking blood out of his penis. Your life could always be worse.
In 2019, scientists found leeches with three jaws and as many as 59 teeth just outside Washington D.C. Be safe out there guys.
