Woman at the age of 51, from Kolkota, India named Minati Mondal, had suffered stomach pain and acid reflux in a period of 2 months.
She went to the hospital where the scans revealed that she have gallstones. During the surgical intervention, doctors were shocked because they found 11,950 stones inside. This is the new world record and the samples are kept in London.
Minati Mondal suffered from crippling stomach pain and acid reflux in a period of two, for her, long months. The conducting tests and ultrasounds showed that she was suffering from a severe case of gallstones.
These gallstones actually are are balls made of cholesterol and salts that were formed in the gallbladder, a little pear – shaped organ underneath the liver that stores bile. In some cases you can lead a normal life without any symptoms even though you have gallstones. But if they start to block the gallbladder they cause pain and nausea and a potentially fatal infection.
While gallstones are common, a fatty diet can raise the risk, especially in women, although it’s not clear why.
