SURAT: A quack had pushed a seven centimetre stick into the urinary bladder of a tribal woman when she had gone to him for abortion a few years ago. This created multiple health problems for 25-year-old Kalpana Chaudhary (name changed), who suffered three miscarriages after a successful delivery in the last eight years of her married life.For the last five years, she was growing weak day by day. Kalpana and her husband are residents of a village near Kosamba in Surat. They came to know about the reason behind her ill health a year ago. However, the couple did not have enough money to meet the medical expenses. Finally, she was operated upon free on Wednesday at New Civil Hospital (NCH) in Surat and the part of the stick left was removed. Doctors said Kalpana can become a mother again and that she can be cured of renal problems as well.

“She was suffering from a series of problems. X-ray and CT scan spotted a foreign object in her urinary bladder. This has caused severe injuries to her internal parts,” head of surgery department, NCH, Dr G R Patel said.

Kalpana told doctors that she had premarital pregnancy nine years ago and had gone to a quack to abort the fetus. He had inserted a stick into her urinary bladder through her vagina and a part of it was left behind.

“She is normal now and will be under treatment for 10 more days. The patient will be able to deliver a child now and recover from renal problems too,” the doctor added
