Huge Ovarian Tumor Removed From Woman’s Abdomen After 5 Years Of Suffering [Viewers Discretion]
An Indian woman had an incredible 15st tumour removed from her abdomen after five years of agony.
Devi Kamlesh, from Meerut, in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, coped with the massive growth for so long because her husband said the family were too poor for her to see a doctor.
The 45-year-old said she followed her husband’s wishes even though the pain was unbearable.
But after his death six months ago she decided to finally see a doctors about the tumour – which weighed as much as a newborn elephant.
The operation lasted three hours and the tumour was finally removed from her right ovary.
Doctors were shocked after they put the huge growth on the scales and discovered it weighed 213lb (97kg) – meaning Ms Kamlesh was carrying around the equivalent of 28 average-weight newborn babies.
Dr Jaggi, 60, said: ‘She was in severe pain when she came to the hospital.
‘The tumour had started leaking and it would have killed her if there was any further delay.
‘Three units of blood were infused during the surgery and then the patient was kept in intensive care for a day.’
He added Ms Kamlesh is recovering well and they have sent the tumour to a lab to be analysed.
