You might have not come across such a thing before and it will surely shock you. Stunned doctors had to operate the lady in order to remove the items from the stomach.
The 22-year-old woman often complained about abdominal pain after every meal for a week and was admitted to hospital. The sonography and x-ray tests revealed metal in her stomach. Therefore, the medical team at the Rampurhat Government Medical College and Hospital in India had to conduct a surgery to remove it.
The doctors removed chains, nose rings, earrings, trinkets, bangles, and anklets after the operation that lasted for 75 minutes. They also recovered 90 coins and a wristwatch.
Dr Siddhartha Biswas, head of the surgery department who led the operation, said the woman had ingested gold, copper and brass items.
The woman who is apparently undergoing psychiatric treatment may have taken the items from her brother’s costume jewellery shop.
Her family said: “We noticed that the ornaments were disappearing. But whenever we questioned her, she started crying and revealed nothing.”
The woman’s mother added: “Despite keeping an eye on her, she somehow managed to swallow all these objects. She was not well for the past two months.
“Before admitting her at the Rampurhat Government Hospital, we had taken her to various private doctors and she was on medication without any result.”
Dr Biswas confirmed the patient, from Margram in West Bengal, India, is stable, and she will soon be discharged. Great work indeed by the medical team who managed to pull the woman out of trouble.
