Minati Mondal, a 51 year old woman, born in Kolkata, India, has been experiencing stomach pain, as well as acid reflux for two long months.
She went to the hospital where the scans showed that she has gallstones. During the surgical intervention, doctors discovered something incredible.
They found 11,950 stones inside. This probably is the new world record and the samples could be kept in London.
This woman experienced crippling stomach pain and acid reflux in a period of two, for her, long months. The conducting tests and ultrasounds revealed that she was suffering from a severe case of gallstones.
These gallstones are balls made of cholesterol and salts that were formed in the gallbladder, a little pear – shaped organ underneath the liver that stores bile.
In many cases you can lead a normal life with no indications even though you have gallstones. When they start to block the gallbladder they are the cause for pain and nausea and a potentially fatal infection. While gallstones are usual, a fatty diet might raise the risk, especially in women, although it is not clear why.
