Doctors remove a 3-inch toothbrush lodged inside woman’s nose

Doctors in India have removed a 3-inch toothbrush lodged inside the nose of a 31-year old woman, a local paper reported.

The report said that the housewife went to a hospital in Mumbai two months ago suffering from severe pain.

During a CT scan, doctors were shocked to find the broken toothbrush prompting them to order an immediate surgery.

“I was brushing my teeth, my husband accidentally pushed me and the toothbrush in my hand broke,”| said the woman. “I was left holding the lower portion of the brush but couldn’t locate the rest of it.”

“Soon after, I started bleeding profusely from the nose,” she added. “But since that day, I began getting breathless and a foul-smelling discharge began to come out of my nose.”

“The odor from her nose was so bad that it could be smelt from a distance of two feet,” said Kaushal Sheth, the doctor who performed the surgery. “If the object had fallen into her windpipe, she could have choked to death.”
