A 27-year-old man in India who was taken to hospital after complaining of severe abdominal pain had an 8-inch deodorant canister found in his sigma.
The unidentified man, from Parthapratima in West Bengal state, reportedly had the can inside him for three weeks before doctors surgically removed it on September 14, News 18 reported. Doctors found the canister had been inserted through the rectum was.
The x-ray showed that the can was stuck in his sigma. A 2-hour operation was performed to remove the bottle, which had its cap, through the stomach, according to images obtained from the outlet.
Doctors at Burdwan Medical College, where the operation was performed, said the man had not been able to relieve himself for a week and his condition was worsening with each passing day. Doctors said his life would have been in danger if he had not reported to the hospital on time.
Unfortunately, the operation brought additional problems. Doctors at the hospital said the man’s esophagus was also damaged and required surgical repair. Surgeons said his intestines were also affected and would require surgery in the future to fix it.
The man’s condition is stable but will remain under medical observation for the next seven days, according to East Coast Daily.
“It was a big deal for us, we treated him with the utmost care,” hospital director Tapas Ghosh told News 18.
Despite the complexity, the patient’s family members said they were “satisfied with the hospital’s treatment.”
“Government hospitals usually delay the process,” they said in a statement. “But they were very quick.”
In April, a 60-year-old Illinois man lodged a dental drill in his lung after accidentally inhaling it during a dental procedure. Doctors said Tom Jozsi inhaled the centimetre-long component of a tooth cavity instrument after the piece broke off while he was having his tooth filled. Doctors said the instrument traveled deep down after he sucked it in, puncturing his larynx and windpipe. It was eventually removed with a robotic ion catheter used for early cancer detection.
