Doctor leaves phone inside woman’s stomach

A JORDANIAN woman claims a doctor left his mobile phone in her abdomen after delivering her baby by Caesarean section.
The 36-year-old was admitted to a private hospital in Amman, Jordon for the operation. She said the operation and birth went well and she returned home with her new daughter. But later, she felt terrible pains in her stomach and her family noticed her belly vibrating.
Being rushed back to hospital, an X-ray revealed there was a foreign object in her abdomen and surgeons quickly operated to remove the phone.
The Jordanian Health Ministry spokesman said the woman’s story was “baseless and fabricated” but added that the Ministry was following it.
