Girl swallows 20 cobblestones !
A girl from Foshan, China, swallowed down more than 20 cobblestones in a moment of anger after a big quarrel with her boyfriend. Initially, she thought the stones would be flushed out after clearing her bowels, but unfortunately they remained intact within her body for the next few days.
To make matters worse, she constantly felt that the stones were knocking against each other within her stomach which caused some pain and discomfort. After visiting the hospital and taking an X-ray, she was advised to undergo surgery to remove the stones. Shocked and not knowing what to do, she tried seeking for help at a local hospital’s online forum.
As further complications may occur if she delays her medical treatment, doctors have advised her to undergo treatment as soon as possible, with the first attempts through the non-painful gastroscope for extracting stones.
