Mum can stick magnets to back after ‘surgeons left metal tool in her years ago’

A woman is able to stick a magnet to her back after claims surgeons left an implement in her SIX years ago.

She says she's been left in agony since the op – and attempted to prove it by sticking the magnet to the small of her back.

Mum-of-two Sevgi Sullerli underwent surgery to repair slipped discs on her lower back at a private hospital in the Denizli province of Turkey, on June 25, 2013.

The operation was designed to put an end to her back pain but instead her symptoms worsened.

Within a year she started having difficulties standing up for a long time and was unable to take care of her kids due to the pain.

She told local media : "I couldn't take proper care of my children due to the pain. I moved to my mother's house and she started taking care of me.

"I went to the same hospital they did an X-ray to me but they told me that the pain was due to the stitches."

However, things took a bizarre twist after she watched a TV report about patients who accidentally have surgical items left inside them on the operating table.

Upon seeing the clip, she began to question some bizarre happenings since the operation.

Sullerli added: "When I was passing through the metal detectors even though I didn't have any metal object on me they were beeping.

"I came back one day home, took a magnet and put it on my back. I realised the magnet stood there.

"I was confused. Then I went back to the hospital where I had the surgery. I told my doctor that I had a metal item in my back and he admitted it was true."

The revelation came after she visited the University Medicine Faculty's Forensic Medicine department where two medics found a ine-centimetre long metal item in her lower back and prepared a report for the case.
