Doctor Kenny Bahn in Fresno, California just shared the story of a patient who came in last August, saying he ate sushi basically every day. Then last summer he started feeling kind of strange, where he was feeling really sick every day.
One day, he felt something really wrong, hence going to the doctor. It’s a good thing he went to get checked out because the doctor found a five-and-a-half FOOT tapeworm inside of him!
Dr. Bahn says the tapeworm was probably in a piece of salmon sushi the guy ate, and grew inside of him for at least six months. Fortunately, the guy is okay but he says he's done with sushi.
