It’s a medical mystery that surgeons never got to the bottom of in a hospital casualty room – how a woman patient ended up with a can of hairspray up her backside.
Mirela Gradinaru, 37, turned up at the clinic in Arad, western Romania, in agony begging doctors to help her. Doctor Mirandolina Prisca explained: “We had X-rays done to localise the object and then we carried out the operation. The patient was fine after it.”
“She was very embarrassed. She was clearly in a lot of pain, however it got there.
“This was not just a little can of deodorant, this was a massive can of hairspray,” said one hospital worker.
I’d love to know the real explanation for this.
