Woman says surgeon left medical supplies in her womb

A French woman claims she “gave birth” to a latex glove and five compresses — that her bird-brained surgeon forgot in her womb during an operation.

The unnamed 48-year-old is now suing the doctor who told her that “everything had gone well” after her April endometrial-ablation at a private clinic in Marseilles, the Telegraph UK reported.

The procedure is supposedly a less invasive way to stop periods than a hysterectomy but the woman said she soon started suffering from pain so unbearable she couldn’t sleep or urinate.

“I had the feeling someone was stabbing me with a knife in the belly,” she told Le Parisien. “But I thought it was linked to the operation.”

She was prescribed painkillers but her pain continued.

“After three days of atrocious pain in the lower stomach, I started having extremely strong contractions and finally expelled a glove and five compresses,” she said.

The ‘delivery’ lasted for hours, and left her in a pool of blood.

She confronted her doctor who allegedly brushed her off, saying “If you’re not happy, go ahead and contact my insurance company. I’m very well insured.”

She is suing him for an undisclosed amount.

Aside from the pain, his forgetfulness left her unable to work for several months and she still suffers from chronic tract infections and needed psychological counseling, she said.

“I wouldn’t like it to happen to anyone else,” she said.
