Metallic and Glass Objects Retreived from Women's Stomach

Jaipur: Ever imagined finding iron nails, coins, locks, glass bangles, magnets and anklet's in a women's stomach?

Impossible right! But it is true that doctors here at the government SMS hospital took these things out after performing a two-hour operation on a 49-year-old woman Lata.

"Lata was admitted here after she complained of severe stomach pain. After a complete check up the hospital prescribed her sonography test to diagnose the problem. Astonishingly the test revealed objects like iron nails, coins, locks, magnets, bangles in her stomach," K.C. Gupta, a senior surgeon at the hospital said.

"We decided to go for a surgery after consulting with her relatives," Gupta said.

After the two-hour operation, the doctors were out with several objects like small locks, magnet, and one, two and five rupees coins, 'mangalsutra' (a gold necklace worn by married Hindu women) from her stomach.

In all about 50 coins, two locks, one mangalsutra, four glass bangles, one silver coin, iron screws, nails and pieces of magnets were taken out.

"Owing to these metallic and glass objects the lady was undergoing a severe pain. It is really the pieces of magnet, which saved her life. Had she not swallowed the magnets, most of these objects would have damaged her organs severely. Owing to the presence of magnetic force the objects remained glued with it," said Gupta.

Later discussing with the relatives, doctors discovered that it was her anger that really took the lady close to her death.

"Whenever she used to loose her temper, she would start eating and swallow the metallic objects," a relative of hers said.
