Woman Has Sex Toy Removed from Her Body After 10 Years

An X-ray in Scotland revealed quite the surprise(Newser) - A 38-year-old female patient was presented with symptoms including mild incontinence, sepsis, lethargy, and unexplained weight loss.

Diagnosis: She'd had a sex toy inside her body for 10 years without knowing it, reports the Scottish Daily Record. Doctors in Aberdeen discovered the 5-inch toy, which was pressing against her bladder, after X-raying the woman's abdomen. The woman then recalled using it with a partner a decade ago in a night of drunken love-making, explains Fox News.

Surgeons removed the toy, and the woman is now fine. As goofy as it sounds, the case outlined in the Journal of Sexual Medicine represented a life-threatening condition.
