She had to have a dildo removed from her bladder after accidentally inserting it into the wrong hole.

According to Daily Mail, the object was almost 10cm long (4 inches) and 2.5cm wide (1 inch), and she had spent "a few hours" trying to get it out but had been unsuccessful.

Getting The Help Of Doctors

Medical professionals attended to the unnamed woman at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. According to the doctors, the previous record for the "widest object" removed in this manner was 2.4 cm wide.

An ultrasound and X-ray performed on the patient revealed that the dildo was positioned horizontally within her bladder.

She Got Help

The woman, who had placed the dildo for "sexual gratification," was given antibiotics via IV drip by medical professionals.

The Biggest Object To Be Removed

The medics believe it is the "widest object" that has ever been removed this way — with the previous record reported being 2.4cm wide.

The dildo was removed from the patient's bladder through the urethra while she was under general anesthesia using a surgical tool called a "grasper" that was passed through the tube.

How The Procedure Is Done

To get rid of it, they underwent cystoscopy, a procedure in which a long, thin tube with a small camera attached to the end is inserted through the urethra.

Doctors determined the woman could pass urine usually and was released the same day.

Rare Incident

In a paper published in Urology Case Reports, the medical group claimed that bladder and urethral foreign bodies are "quite rare" in the urinary tract. They claimed it frequently results from self-insertion, "inquisitiveness," or mental illness.

There Have Been Different Cases Of Objects Removal From The Tract

According to medical reports, the doctors wrote that a "diverse" range of objects had been removed from the urinary tract, and doctors frequently had to use "improvised" methods.

Symptoms Of An Object Stalked In Bladder

Blood in the urine, an inability to urinate, and swollen genitalia can also be symptoms in addition to the patient's complaints of difficulty passing urine and abdominal pain.

According to case studies, only about half of cases can be resolved by a cystoscopy; the riskier situations, like those involving a larger object or an elderly patient, call for surgery.

Foreign Bodies In The Bladder

Due to the bladder's relative protection by the surrounding organs, foreign bodies in the urinary bladder are relatively uncommon. The bladder is located in front of the lower intestine and behind the pubic bones.

The Method Foreign Objects Can Be Removed

One study found that only about 50% of bladder foreign bodies can be removed endoscopically; the remaining patients require open procedures like cystotomies.

Cystotomy is recommended when the surgeon determines that endoscopic extraction is too risky given the characteristics of the object, anatomical abnormalities, and the patient's gender and age.

What Happens To The Uretha Once Discomforted

Having an object in your urethra may cause pain or bleeding. You may also get an infection. The bladder could be harmed if the object moved toward it.

What Happens If Not Treated Quickly

Additionally, it may cause swelling, an infection, scarring, a loss of bladder control, and a fistula—an abnormal pathway connecting two organs.
