One new mother in France just discovered a pair of surgical scissors was left in her body after surgeons performed a c-section.
Something can always go wrong during even the most planned and standard surgeries. One new mother in France just discovered a pair of surgical scissors was left in her body.
The unidentified mom gave birth on November 5th of this year. The caesarian was performed at a university hospital in Normandy. After she returned home, the woman encountered severe pain and for awhile she shrugged it off, believing it was only due to the procedure.
Following six weeks of continued discomfort, she returned to the hospital. A scan was performed on her midsection and soon, doctors saw the scissors resting in her womb.
The woman was forced to undergo another surgery so the medical tool could be removed. She and her husband are obviously upset and traumatized.
Although the young mother received an apology from the surgeon responsible for leaving the scissors inside her, it isn’t quite enough.
The lady and her husband reportedly plan on filing a complaint against the surgeon.
