Brazilian man shoves a 2kg DUMBBELL in his rectum… only for the 20cm-long weight to get STUCK – leaving doctors no choice but to pull it out with their hands

  • The man had got the 20cm metal dumbbell stuck two days before seeking help
  • Medics tried to use tools to extract the object but found it was too tightly lodged
  • They had to reach inside him with their hands up to the forearm and pull it out

A Brazilian man who shoved a dumbbell in his rectum needed to get it yanked out by surgeons. 

The unidentified 54-year-old waited two days before seeking medical attention after failing to extract the 2kg metal weight himself.

He turned up to a hospital in Manaus complaining of abdominal pain, nausea and being unable to defecate. 

After an examination of his rectal region found no sign of what might be causing his symptoms, doctors ordered an X-ray of his abdomen.

Medics — who suggested the unusual case was of a ‘sexual nature’ — said the man was ‘uncooperative’ during the physical examination. 

The X-ray revealed a dumbbell, which was almost 8 inches long (20cm), was lodged where the colon meets the rectum. 

Medics sedated the man for their attempted extraction involving surgical tweezers, but couldn’t remove the dumbbell. 

Left with no other option, the team opted for the ‘manual extraction’, involving the surgeon shoving in their ‘forearm’.

Writing in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports, they claimed it was fraught with ‘difficulties’ but ended up a success with the man discharged after three days in hospital. 

Doctors said the majority of patients admitted with retained rectal objects are white men between the ages of 20 and 40.

Sexual gratification is the most commonly reported reason for getting objects stuck. 

This is partly to do with the number of nerves in the anus, making it highly sensitive.

For men, it can also simulate the prostate — an erogenous region of the reproductive system.

For women, it can also indirectly stimulate pleasurable centres in the vagina.

Medics also said many patients only turn up to A&E after repeated failed attempts to extract the objects themselves.

In this case, the man is expected to suffer no long-term complications.

But the authors of the report said other cases can result in internal injuries and faecal incontinence.

Dr Ana Elisa de Landa Moraes Teixeira Grossi and colleagues did not detail when the incident took place. 

NHS doctors spend around £300,000 a year extracting items out of British rectums, experts believe.

The Royal College of Surgeons’ report found that NHS hospitals had removed 3,500 objects between 2010 and 2019. 

MailOnline has previously reported on people using toothbrushes, aerosol cans, toy figurines, and eggs in their pursuit of sexual pleasure. 

A UK study found the incidence of objects having to be removed from rectums is on the rise with cases particularly growing in men
