When a 30-year-old woman walked into a hospital complaining of stomach pains, doctors examined her for all of the typical causes one might expect: ulcer, irritable bowl syndrome, hernia, or gallstones.

When they asked her if she had recently undergone a surgery, the unnamed woman replied "no." This eliminated the possibility that a surgeon accidentally left behind a foreign object, but, after looking at a CT scan, doctors realized that something metallic was definitely in there.
When they removed the object, they couldn't believe what it was. Find out for yourself on the next page!
