Minati Mondal, 51, from Kolkota, India had suffered stomach pain and acid reflux for 2 months.
She was admitted to hospital where scans revealed she had gallstones. During the operation, doctors were shocked to find 11,950 stones inside her.This may be a new world record and specimen could be kept in London.
A doctor was astonished to remove a staggering 11,950 gallstones from inside an Indian woman – thought to be a new world record.
Minati Mondal, 51, had been suffering from crippling stomach pain and acid reflux for two months.
After conducting tests and ultrasounds, doctors found she was suffering from a severe case of gallstones.
These are balls made of cholesterol and salts that form in the gallbladder, a little pear-shaped organ underneath the liver that stores bile. While you can live with gallstones with no symptoms, if they start to block the gallbladder they cause pain and nausea and a potentially fatal infection. While gallstones are common, a fatty diet can raise the risk, especially in women, although it’s not clear why.
But the doctors did not expect to find such a huge number of stones.
“I was astonished to see the large number of stones that we extracted from the gall bladder of this patient,” said Dr. Makhan Lala Saha, who performed the laparoscopic surgery.
“I had never thought a gall bladder could contain so many stones.”
Dr. Saha had to enlist the help of many assistants to help count all the tiny stones – wearing double-layered rubber gloves of course. 4 hours later, the assistants concluded that there were, in fact, 12,000 stones between 2 mm and 5 mm in size.
Dr Makhan Lala Saha, a gastrointestinal endo surgeon at the hospital, said he was anticipating large number of stones but was still shocked when the number crossed the 5,000 mark.
“Two months ago, I had operated on a girl who had 1,110 stones but despite the shocking number, I found that in 1983, doctors in Britain had removed 3,110 stones from a German patient’s gall bladder,” said Dr. Saha.
“But I feel this number can replace the past record since the current number is three times more than the record.”
