Warangal: In a horrifying accident, doctors of Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital (MGMH) in Warangal forgot the surgical scissors in a patient’s abdomen after surgery. A pair of scissors was discovered after an X-Ray on Wednesday.
64-year-old Rajam from Bellampalli underwent surgery for an ulcer at MGMH a couple of months earlier. However, even after the surgery, he suffered from severe stomach pain. Assuming it is the post-surgery pain, Rajam ignored it. He consulted doctors at MGMH after continuing pain.
An X-Ray revealed the goof-up in the previous surgery. MGMH Superintendent Dr. K. Nagarjuna Reddy said that a pair of surgical scissors remained in the abdomen. “A comprehensive inquiry is sought,” he said.
