Woman complaining of diarrhea has pen lodged in stomach… From 25 years ago!

The British Medical Journal reports that an elderly woman referred for weightloss and diarrhea was discovered to have a felt tip pen lodged in her stomach. When they questioned her, she remembered accidentally swallowing the pen 25 years earlier! If you think that’s crazy, wait till you hear this. Her doctor husband dismissed the whole thing.

The pen was removed to avoid perforation of the stomach through an ear, nose and throat procedure and the pen still works.
