Surgeons Removed A 42-Years-Old Bullet From A Woman's Head

Chinese doctors removed a bullet out of a woman's head, 42 years after she was shot.

During the surgical operation, doctors removed a bullet of 2.5 centimeters in diameter from the right temple of the 65-years-old He Wenying. The operation was carried out by surgeons from a hospital in the Chinese town Chongqing.

According to the patient, she was shot during one of the armed manifestations, which took place in China during the Culture Revolution that took place in the period between 1966 and 1976.

The woman added that, at first, doctors have determined a superficial character of lesions. However, constant headaches and difficulties the patient felt at opening her mouth made her pass an X-ray study in 1978. The results of the study established that there was a bullet in the area of the woman's right ear.

The patient refused to be operated for a long time because of the unsatisfactory state of the medical institutes in Chongqing. However, according to He Wenying, lately her headaches became unbearable, which convinced her to undergo a surgical operation for the removal of the heterogeneous body.
