When the man faced serious bowel issues, he allegedly sought treatment from local folklore, who suggested the eel method.

He was reportedly told it would help relieve his constipation, but the dangerous attempt took a terrifying turn.

After entering the man's rectum, it traveled to his colon before allegedly biting through and ending up in his abdomen.

His pain tolerance is higher than most because the man in question lasted a full day before he couldn't take the pain any longer and went to the hospital.

Doctors quickly operated on him and found the eel was still alive inside of him.

The surgeons who operated on the man say he came dangerously close to losing his life because of the foolish stunt.

They point out he could have died had bacteria gotten into his large intestines and caused hemolysis -- which is the rupture of red blood cells.

According to reports, the man isn't the only person who has tried this method of relieving constipation.

A 50-year-old man in Guangdong Province allegedly did the same thing last year but instead of using a 20-centimeter eel, he doubled it with a 40-centimeter one.
