The teenager was not in pain, and the ball was not affecting his bowel movements. An X-ray showed the golf ball was lodged in the boy’s sigmoid colon, making removal challenging for the doctors. An intensive procedure to physically extract the ball went on for two hours under general anesthesia. Despite trying various methods, such as a suction cup, medical net, quad-prong grasper, and balloon catheter, the doctors were unable to achieve success.

According to an article by Yahoo!News, doctors wrote in their medical report, “Taking into consideration the family’s reluctance to undergo more aggressive intervention (e.g., laparotomy) and with the absence of colonic obstruction, we decided to trial volume laxatives to facilitate passage of the golf ball.”After a lot of consideration, the young boy was given almost one litre of laxative. The boy successfully pushed out the ball after three hours with the help of laxatives. The nightmare was finally over…both for the boy and for the doctors incharge!
