Oh, I See What The Problem is!

Ah, so that's what the scar was from!

Doctor, doctor, why is my head always hurting? Hmm, maybe it’s because you have a 4 inch knife blade stuck in your brain! Li Fu was stabbed in the head during a robbery in 2006 but for some unknown reason doctors who treated him failed to notice a knife buried in his skull. Fast forward 4 years and Mr Li has a routine X-ray after complaining about migraines and viola there’s the big friggin blade, clear as day. No prob, will just pull that out for ya!

Doctors Fail to Notice Toilet Brush Handle In Woman’s Bottom

OMG, imagine having a 15cm toilet brush handle embedded in your bum for 4 years. Worse still, imagine dying because doctors failed to take you seriously. Cindy Corton was drunk when she fell on the toilet brush in her friend’s bathroom in 2005. She took herself off to the hospital to have X-Rays but the doctors failed to notice the thin serrated handle stuck in her bottom. In 2007, after immense agony, Cindy finally convinced doctors there was a object in her bum. Unfortunately, by that stage the handle had become embedded in her pelvis making any  attempt at removing it dangerous. Cindy died in 2009 after she underwent a third surgery to have it removed.Needless to say Cindy’s husband Peter is taking legal action against United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust.
