A lot of people have suffered from constipation when they aren’t careful about what they eat. But what if something that doesn’t belong in the stomach is causing all the trouble without the person having any idea about it?

An 18-year-old in Australia had been suffering from constipation, vomiting and nausea for five days after which he visited a hospital. Further examination revealed that the illness was caused due to a filled water balloon blocking the bowel.

Meanwhile the man claimed that he had no idea how the balloon got in his gut even though it was tied with a knot. Doctors opened the intestine and removed the balloon as they scheduled an appointment with a psychiatrist for the man.
