According to SWNS, a 50-year-old woman who was suffering from abdominal pain for 18 months decided to delay surgery when doctors diagnosed her with gallstones in November of 2016. Even though her doctors advised surgery to remove the stones, the woman opted for “alternative treatments.”

But when the pain became unbearable, she visited Mumbai’s Bhaktivedanta Hospital, where doctors confirmed her previous diagnosis. “She was admitted earlier this month, and an ultrasound confirmed what was found in the earlier investigations," the woman’s surgeon told SWNS.

Dr. Bimal C. Shah successfully removed 2,350 gallstones from the woman, “Gallstones, measuring up to 10 to 12 millimeters were removed through surgery which lasted about 30 minutes.”
