Brits get salt shakers, onions and toilet brushes stuck up bums as cases spike

Patients really are a pain in the bum for the NHS – because they keep getting things stuck up their backsides.

Medics are trying to get to the bottom of a sharp rise in the number of botty ops they are having to carry out.

Figures show they have more than doubled from 78 in 2016 to 184 in 2021.

The objects removed, officially known as “rectal foreign bodies”, included a toilet brush, a vacuum cleaner attachment, a saltshaker and an onion.

An NHS spokesman said: “If people have a problem they should come forward for care regardless of any precarious
positions they may be in. When it comes to issues like this typical NHS pathways still apply.”

In County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, doctors recovered a whopping 14 sex toys.

Doctors in Rotherham, South Yorks, recovered a nail gun nail, an ear plug and a ring.

Calderdale and Huddersfield surgeons discovered drugs, bottles and a knitting needle.

And at the University Hospitals of North Midlands, surgeons found a metal bar, a carrot and a lanyard.

Some patients claimed to have accidentally sat on these objects while naked.

Back in December, a woman from Central London was left "humiliated" after getting a sex toy lost up her bottom.

Rosiee Sunshine ended up in A&E when a raunchy FaceTime call with her long distance boyfriend went horribly wrong.

The couple had hoped to spice up their sex life up, so purchased a silicone toy.

Rosiee experimented with the device that measured 10.3cm from tip to base and 4.4cm wide.

But after feeling a "pop", the 21-year-old realised the toy had slipped fully inside her.

She spent an hour trying to get the item out of her backside but was eventually forced to get her housemate to drive her to hospital.
