 Pregnant Woman Has Surgical Needle Poking Out of Her Belly

A 26-year old mother-to-be in Britain revealed that she has a surgical needle poking out of her stomach, just inches away from her unborn baby.

Milton Keynes resident Kelly Donegan said that she had been experiencing discomfort on her left side of the stomach similar to a needle poking sensation but was told by doctors not to worry about the pain.

However a few weeks later, she was horrified to find a pin poking out of her stomach. Donegan said that the doctors are not sure about the exact place where the pin is located since they cannot conduct an X-ray as it could prove to be harmful for the unborn child. The pin will only be removed once she has given birth.

"They can't even do an X-ray to see how much of the thing is inside me because X-rays are dangerous for pregnant women. All they can do until then is trim the sharp end off it so it doesn't catch on things. It's horrible and it's also quite sore. But there's nothing I can do except wait", she said.
