Kerala health minister orders probe : Forceps left inside woman’s stomach taken out after 5 years

Kozhikode : The Kerala health minister Veena George on Saturday ordered a probe after a woman named Harshina in Kozhikode registered a complaint against doctors for having left forceps inside her body while performing a caesarean on her five years before. George also asked the Kerala health secretary to submit a report soon, news agency PTI reported. Meanwhile, besides the Kerala government, the medical college itself has ordered an inquiry into the incident, the PTI report added.

In November 2017, Harshina had undergone her third caesarean at the Kozhikode Medical College after which she began feeling “severe pain”. The pain though reduced with strong antibiotics; it became unbearable for the last six months as she suffered from urinary infection. A CT scan by doctors of a private hospital later revealed that there was a metal object in her stomach that was poking at her urinary bladder and resulting in the infection. The doctors finally removed a ‘mosquito artery forceps’ from her body.
