You know that thing where you chip a tooth and are like ‘I’ve got to get to the dentist, right away!’ but then there’s no appointment time at the time you want, so you kinda forget about it, and the pain sort of goes away, and then six months later you are getting a root canal?
Yea, so yea. Yea. So replace chipped tooth with ectopic pregnancy and six months with 38 years and now you’re telling the story of Jyoti Kumar.
Kumar got pregnant in 1978 in India, and the pregnancy was diagnosed as ectopic (that’s when a fetus plants itself in the Fallopian tubes instead of the uterus).
Instead of having the baby removed, she was like NAW, FUCK THAT. And just chilled for 38 years, until recently, when she began having some stomach pains and trouble urinating.
That’s when doctors were like, ‘Yea. Babies don’t just dissolve.’
The team of surgeons discovered a mass containing a matured skeleton encapsulated in a calcified sac.
The mass was found between the uterus, the intestines and bladder, densely stuck to all the organs.
‘The amniotic fluid that protects the foetus might have been absorbed and the soft tissues liquefied over time with only a bag of bones with some fluid remaining,’ Dr Shah said.
Wanna see the grossness? Yea, you do.
