Doctors remove 1.6 kg of jewellery from woman's stomach.

Doctors at a medical college in India performed an operation on a 22-year-old woman where they removed jewellery weighing 1.68 kg, 90 coins and a wristwatch from her stomach.
The operation at Rampurhat Government Medical College in Bengal’s Birbhum district lasted 1 hour and 15 minutes. Hospital Deputy Superintendent Sharmila Moulik said that the woman was mentally unstable and has since been referred to a psychiatrist.“Her condition is stable since the surgery was performed. She will be under psychiatric treatment,” Moulik said. The woman was brought to the hospital by family members a week ago after she complained of stomach pain and nausea. After carrying out radiological tests, doctors discovered metal objects in her stomach.“We found various types of imitation jewellery, including chains and rings, weighing 1.68 kg. There were 90 coins and even a wristwatch,” said doctor Siddhartha Biswas, a professor and head of the surgery department. The woman later confessed to doctors that she swallowed those items and her family members said that she used to sit in her brother’s costume jewellery shop and possibly swallowed the coins while she was alone. The woman's mother said that she began to notice ornaments disappearing from their home in Margram village but whenever the family questioned her, she would start crying.“My daughter is mentally unsound. For past few days she was throwing up after having every meal,” the mother said.“We used to keep a watch on her. But somehow she managed to swallow all these materials. She was not well for the past two months. We had taken her to various private doctors and she was on medication without any result,” the mother added. A doctor who was a part of the operating team said: “She swallowed jewellery and coins whenever she felt hungry.”
