This woman went to the hospital after a horrible stomach ache, but what the doctor discovered after a detailed analysis shocked him.
Following the operation, the medical team removed no less than 11,950 gallstones. Gallstones are composed of cholesterol and other constituents found in bile.
In size, they can be smaller than a grain of wheat or larger than a golf ball.
The vast majority of these stones do not cause problems, but if they block an excretory canal, they can cause pain, nausea, or even fatal infection.
The one who operated on the woman was Dr. Makhan Lala Saha, he confessed: “I was amazed to see so many stones extracted from this patient’s gallbladder. I never thought that a gallbladder could contain so many stones. ”
The doctor helped the team of doctors to count all the extracted stones, their amount amazed them: 11,950 calculations with sizes between 2 and 5 mm.
This seems to be an absolute record, another case that shocked the medical world concerned only 3,110 stones extracted from a patient in Germany in 1983.
