The team removed a half kg of human hair and empty shampoo packets.

This is not the first case when the doctors removed solid objects from any individual’s stomach. There were in the past also many such cases. A case of a mentally ill man also came in front of all of us in May 2019 when the doctors removed eight spoons, two screwdrivers, two toothbrushes, a door latch and a kitchen knife.
Similarly, in June 2019, a doctor in a government hospital in Udaipur removed around 80 solid objects which included keys, coins, from the stomach of a mentally ill person. After a month, in chhatarpur, Madhya Pradesh a team of doctors removed solid objects like screwdrivers, razor blades from a man’s stomach after he complained of stomach pain from past few months and now this case from Tamil Nadu in which the doctors did a great job by removing all the solid from her stomach.
