I've heard of people having stomach pains and then doctors finding surgical equipment, BBQ wire brush bristles, or some other strange stuff inside them, but never have I heard of a dead body.
I can't even imagine having bones resting in abdomen for decades! Ouch! This story will shock you, and have you questioning the human anatomy.
A Pain In The Belly
For 36 years, Kantabai Thakre had a skeleton inside her body without even knowing it.
After becoming increasingly concerned for her health, she decided to go to see a doctor at the age of 60.
Doctors found a lump on her abdomen, and were concerned that she had cancer. An MRI scan revealed that her pain was caused by bones inside her.
What they discovered left her even more sick to her stomach...
The Hard Truth
The Indian woman learned that she was still carrying her unborn child.
She was shocked when hearing this because she was pregnant in 1978, at the age of 24. Doctors told her the baby wouldn't survive because it was an ectopic pregnancy, which is when an embryo attaches outside the uterus, and develops outside the womb.
She was encouraged by doctors to undergo surgery to remove the fetus, but she refused, and went back to her village.
Thakre told local reporters that she had pain for a while, but then it subsided, so she thought that she must have miscarried during that time.
Now almost four decades later, it was discovered that her unborn child died while still inside her, turning to bones, making the woman hold the record of the longest ectopic pregnancy.
Miscarriages and stillbirths are just awful, but this is something else!
