The woman – surnamed Long – says the rock-hard calcium object, which completely obstructed her bladder, forced her to use the loo non-stop throughout the day – at least once every hour.
Doctor Liu Feng, head urologist at the Aksu First People’s Hospital in China, said Long was admitted with stomach pains and blood in her urine, but the woman made no mention of her bladder stone.
This was because, despite feeling the solid object inside her, the woman thought it was one of her bones and put her stomach pains down to the flu.
Doctors at the facility in Aksu City, in north west China, scanned the woman and were then left stunned when the giant ball measuring some 10cm in diameter appeared on the screen.
“Now that it’s been removed, I feel much better”
Doctor Liu said the bladder stone weighed about 760g and appeared to be the size of a lead shot-put ball.
It had been obstructing the woman’s bladder and the clueless woman appeared to have let it grown over several years.
Long was taken into surgery to have the calcium build-up removed and she claimed to feel “instantly relieved”.
His condition was mistaken for thyromegaly: an enlarged thyroid
Long was quoted as saying: “I always knew there was a hard mass by the stomach, but I thought it was a bone.
“I never thought it would turn out to be a bladder stone,” she added.
“Now that it’s been removed, I feel much better,” Long said.
