Doctors removed a toothpick from a woman’s foot, which had been stuck in it for 10 years, the Austrian Independent reported.
The 26-year-old woman went to a clinic in Feldkirch complaining of “agonizing pain” in her right foot several times before doctors decided to give her an X-ray. At first, doctors missed the image of the toothpick, and told the woman she was imaging the pain.
The woman said she “accidentally rammed the object into her foot” 10 years ago, and forgot about it until it started bothering her. Doctors removed the splinter this month.
