Toothbrush Removed From Indian Man Stomach After He Swallowed It While Brushing by Macsjebs(m): 6:16pm On Sep 22, 2020
A bloodied toothbrush had to be removed from a man’s stomach after he swallowed it while cleaning the back of his throat.

Doctors removed the 19cm-long brush within 24 hours, fearing that leaving it any longer could have been fatal. The patient, 39, whose name has been withheld, was brushing his teeth on September 15 when it slipped.

He rushed to a nearby health clinic, which quickly referred him to a hospital more than 100km away.

An X-ray and further tests couldn’t locate the brush in the man’s throat – leading doctors to conclude it was in his stomach. A minor operation was performed a short time later and the brush was removed.

The man remained in hospital while he recovered and was discharged a few days later. Dr Bomni Tayeng, a senior surgeon at Bakin Pertin General Hospital, Pradesh, India, said:

‘The patient was taken to a private hospital in Pasighat – from there he was referred to our hospital. ‘The ENT surgeon of our hospital investigated the patient and planned to conduct an esophagoscopy, while I checked the patient at around 6pm.

‘The esophagoscopy procedure was conducted on September 16 morning, but the toothbrush couldn’t be found in the oesophagus – the muscular tube connecting the pharynx (throat) with the stomach. ‘This meant that the toothbrush had entered into the stomach.’

Dr Tayeng added that the patient was not feeling any pain after ingesting the toothbrush and was experiencing only minor discomfort in his upper abdomen.

He said: ‘As the toothbrush couldn’t be detected in the x-ray, I then decided to conduct an exploratory laparotomy process under general anaesthesia in the same sitting.

‘The brush could be easily felt in the stomach and was removed through a small incision in the stomach. This procedure took only about 30 minutes.

‘The very next day he started taking oral fluids, and had an uneventful recovery. He was discharged on September 21.’

I am kind of wondering which normal man will swallow a tooth brush while brushing.

If na woman, it won't matter much because they are used to dealing with things that are bigger and even longer than tooth brush. grin grin grin
