‘A Huge Striped Reptile Took Up Residence In My Tummy!’

EMERGENCY room doctors were stunned when they cut into a woman’s belly – and found a 1,83-metre snake!

“It was like something out of horror movie,”, says Dr. Damien Perez, one of the physicians at the bustling New York ER. “The snake was white with bands of a darker colour around it. The mouth was large and when it looked at us, it bared its fangs and hissed like a steam ketle.

“When Patty woke up that morning she was in agony,” recalls her husband David, a 40-year-old security guard.

“We thought it was something she’d eaten the night before. We had been to a Japanese restaurant and Patty had eaten sushi. I’ve always been squeamish about eating raw fish, and I said, “I told you so’, when my wife got sick.”

David raced his moaning spouse to the ER, where doctors were baffled by their patient’s symptoms.

“Mrs. Rogers began to vomit violently, then she went into convulsions,” says Perez. “When we removed her clothes we could see something moving beneath the skin of her stomach.

“We took X-rays, but couldn’t quite believe what we were seeing. Before we could discuss what to do next, Mrs Roger’s heart stopped.We didn’t have time to get her to an OR. We had to operate immediately.

“I believe the snake had been living in her large intestine, feeding from the food that passed through her gastrointestinal system – and growing bigger and bigger.

“How it got there, we have no idea. Nor does she.”
But after surgeons removed the snake from Roger’s stomach, she slowly recovered – and researches say she may have swallowed snake eggs when she drank ricer water on a camping trip.

Rogers isn’t the first victim of this hideous affliction. It’s mentioned in the literature of the Middle Ages and in medical texts as late as the 19th century. Here are two cases from the book Cabinet of Medical

Curiosities:
1.) In 16th-century France, a shoemaker who suffered abdominal pains for 10 years finally stabbed himself in despair. Later, his widow found a live snake in his coffin. It had exited through the stab wound.
2.) In 1642, it was recorded that a German woman named Catharina Geisslerin vomited toads and lizards from her mouth for 14 years.
