Thai caption: You've been warned - get a check-up

 

Doctors at the Tha Bo Crown Prince Hospital in Nong Khai confirmed that they had removed 1,898 gallstones from a patient. 

 

They said the removal of gallstones was a standard procedure but they had never encountered such a number as this and it was a record. 

 

The patient lost their gall bladder in the procedure. They had come into the hospital complaining of stomach pains, tightness and constipation. 

 

Gallstones can be caused by excess cholesterol in the system.

 

Doctors warned people to get check-ups. 

 

Online checks show that world records for gallstones are likely in excess of 10,000 stones, notes Thaivisa.

according to medicine:

 

gall bladder, not needed, can remove it

appendix, not needed, can remove it

adenoids, not needed, can remove it

tonsils, not needed, can remove it

 

according to many religions, man is made in the image of god, but let's cut the FORESKIN anyway

 

so the little <deleted> will not masturbate too much in the future

But in this case it was something else, as cholesterol stones are yellow soft fatty lumps, not really stones at all.

The stones in the photograph appear to be pigment gallstones
