How do you feel when your stomach churns and make you feel all uncomfortable? Minati Mondal, a native from Kolkata, India was suffering from severe stomach ache for a long time. She was even reported to be experiencing acid reflux for two long months. She finally managed to go to a nearby hospital in order to get herself checked. That was when the doctors found an interesting find.
The surprised doctors discovered that the 51-year-old Minati had gallstones inside her body. First 5000 were discovered but when the doctors went ahead with their discovery, they were stunned to find out 12,000 gallstones in her body. How did they get there?
The 51-year-old lady felt a severe pain in her stomach for 2 long months. 45 days later she could not bare the pain and thought of going to the doctor.
After running several tests, the doctors concluded that she suffered a severe case of gallstones. Though, gallstones are completely normal, it was the amount that shocked the doctors.
I wonder how 11,950 gallstones got in there?
Gallstones are balls of cholesterol that are formed in the gall bladder. The bladder is a little pear-shaped organ placed underneath the liver that stores bile.
A high cholesterol fatty diet is the culprit behind this issue. Cholesterol and salts are the ones that make up gallstones and are most common in women. This is bought mostly by the diet.
