An imam (worship leader of a Muslim community) was rushed to the emergency room, complaining of extreme abdominal pain with cramps and bleeding from his anus. Like anyone in severe pain, the man screamed at ER workers to help him immediately. When the doctors removed what was causing the symptoms they were shocked at what came out in pieces…you’ll be sickened if you keep reading.
The doctors reportedly took pieces of cucumber out of his rectum, and the official diagnosis in the incident was “bleeding in the anus and rectum and foreign object in the rectum.”
The imam was discharged on June 24 after treatment.
After the story made it to the local press, an official investigation has been launched by the local branch of the Religious Affairs Directorate, or Diyanet, of which the imam was an employee.
He was suspended immediately.
The Chamber of Doctors, meanwhile, slammed the hospital officials for leaking information about a patient.
“The imam applied to a hospital for a medical condition, it is a crime to have leaked the information of a patient,” said Ardıl Bayram Şahin, a member of the Istanbul Chamber of Doctors’ Human Rights Commission.
“We do not know what the official investigation is about, but suspension is unacceptable,” he added.
In my opinion, if you don’t want everyone to know you enjoy shoving cucumbers up your anus don’t do it to begin with! That is seriously revolting.
