It started normally enough. A 63-year-old Vietnamese woman had went to the hospital complaining about splitting week-long headaches, test scans that showed what looked like tumours which resulted in a standard tumour removal surgery being scheduled.
When she came into the operating theatre for the procedure, surgeons were not prepared to find a surprise guest lurking inside her throat. Apparently, there was a fat, two-inch leech jammed in one of her throat sinuses. Say what?
A video of the incident shows the woman on the operating theatre, with clamps and tubes going in her mouth, as doctors gestured and pointed down her throat. Reaching in steadily with clamps, a surgeon grabs hold of the bloodsucker. The leech, sensing the invasion, latches on for dear life and for a brief moment, a strange game of tug-of-war breaks out on the operating table.
The surgeon finally pulls the not-so-little sucker out and puts the angry creature down where we get to see it clearly, twisting angrily on the surgeon’s tray.
It is believed that the leech got in the woman’s throat when she bathed in spring water, according to NST. The doctors estimate that the leech had been feeding off her for 3 months.
