Doctors removed a Glass Tumbler from 55-years-old man’s stomach
MUZAFFARPUR: In Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district, a team of doctors removed a glass tumbler from the stomach of a 55-year-old man during an operation.
According to the hospital management, the patient had reached a private hospital in the Madhapur area of Muzaffarpur city, who suffering from acute constipation and abdominal pain, was on Sunday operated upon by team of doctors and extracted a glass tumbler from his colon.
Dr. Makhdulul Haq, who led the team of doctors operating on the patient, resident of Mahua area of Vaishali district, said that the ultrasound and X-ray report of the said patient showed that there was some serious disturbance in his intestines.
Sharing video footage of the surgery and the X-ray taken before the operation with the media, Dr Haq said, “How the glass tumbler ended up inside, is at present a mystery.”
“When we inquired, the patient said he swallowed the tumbler while having tea. That is, however, not a convincing explanation. The food pipe of a human being is too narrow for the object,” he said.
The doctor said initially an attempt was made to pull the glass out of the rectum through an endoscopic procedure “but that did not work out. So we had to cut open his abdomen and extract the tumbler after making an incision in his intestinal wall,” said Dr Haq.
