Woman Swallows 5-Inch Spoon While Using It to Dislodge Fish Bone Stuck in Her Throat

Recommended Posts

Doctors in Shenzen, China recently performed an emergency endoscopy to remove a 13-centimeter metal spoon from a woman’s duodenum, after she accidentally swallowed it while trying to dislodge a fish bone from her throat.


The reckless patient, known only as Lily, reportedly swallowed the stainless steel spoon before the Qingming Festival on April 5, but didn’t bother going to the hospital until four days later, because she didn’t feel any pain in her stomach.


She had apparently tried to use the metal spoon to remove a fish bone that had become lodged in her throat, but it accidentally slipped from her fingers and she ended up swallowing it. Talk about things going from bad to worse, right?


The woman thought it was too much trouble to go to the hospital right before the Qingming Festival, so she only went to see a doctor about her problem four days after the incident.


When she finally arrived at the Shenzhen Nanshan Hospital last Monday and told doctors there what had happened, they ordered an X-ray and saw the large metal spoon stuck in her duodenum.


“As the spoon was in a somewhat horizontal position, we carefully adjusted it before pulling it out vertically,” Dr Sun Tingji told Pear Video. The metal spoon had caused swelling and erosion in the patient’s duodenum, but doctors were able to remove it, and following treatment, the woman was discharged and is expected to make a full recovery.

terrible incident....reminds me a bit of that emergency a friend in the local hospital told me about the other day....you have this lady arriving with a bottle stuck in the most intimate part of her posterior.... as I did not get the final end of the case, I wonder what she was trying to fish out back there with a bottle ? 🤔

Makes me pi**ng myself laughing, not because of her awkward situation but somebody (me) used once on a company dinner a fork as toothpick.

I tried to make it very decent as a big chunk of Lamb chop stuck in my teeth and it hurt.

The fork got stuck and there was no chance to get it lose again so the colleagues called a taxi and brough me to a Hospital at 21:00 in the evening.

Arriving there the Taxi Chauffeur couldn't hold himself and so did my colleagues. He even made a picture before I went out of the cab.

In the Hospital the night shift nurse touched the fork (trying to be decent but her tears were running) and it came lose without any force.. 

At the hospital door I heard back some loud laughing coming out of the nurse's room, at least she waited until I was out of sight.
