The Woman Who Had To Go Under The Knife

Margaret Daalman came to hospital complaining of stomach ache - and one glance at her X-ray shows why. Look at the picture above. That's why! Surgeons in Rotterdam in the Netherlands were flabbergasted when X-rays showed 78 different items of cutlery in the 52-year-old woman's stomach.

She seems to have been suffering from some sort of obsession and every time she sat down for a meal she would ignore the food and eat the cutlery. The astonishing images were actually taken over 30 years ago - but they were published for the first time this week in a Dutch medical magazine.
