After a three-hour operation, a urologist has removed a 13cm stone weighing 1.1kg from the urinary bladder of a senior citizen.
Edward Warner, 72, from Vasai was detected with urinary bladder cancer two decades ago. He was fitted with an artificial urinary bladder at that time, but he started to experience urinary pain,said Dr Devendra Patil who conducted the surgery. But for the past few months, Warner started having severe pains, so we conducted a sonography and was shocked to find that he was suffering from kidney stone,which was also captured in a X ray, said the urologist.
“Warner is a heart patient, so we had to exercise caution,” said the doctor, who claimed that the stone was one of the largest in the country. The patient is stable and was discharged on Tuesday, said Dr Patil.
