A Taiwanese woman suffering ‘unbearable’ stomach aches was stunned when she found the root of her problems – a fountain pen lodged in her stomach.
The 20-year old was in pain for more than six months before the foreign object was removed at a hospital in Taipei.
The item was left undetected by her doctor, and was only discovered when a four inch pen showed up on an X-ray during an endoscopy procedure.
Although the woman says she doesn’t remember swallowing the pen, she believes she could have swallowed it while drunk at an end of exams party.
