MinatiMondal is a woman from Calcutta, India, who went to a doctor after suffering from stomach pain and acid reflux for 45 days. When she was examined, it was revealed that she had 12 000 gallstones in her gallbladder which were removed after a lengthy surgery! This is the worst case of gallstones doctors had to face and the samples are kept in London.

Before the shocking discovery, Minati was suffering from intense pain and acid reflux for less than two months. When she was examined with ultrasound, it was revealed that she was suffering from a severe case of gallstones.

Gallstones are small crystalline masses formed in the gallbladder by bile pigments, cholesterol and calcium salts which can cause pain and block your bile ducts. In many cases the person with gallstones can live a normal life without any symptoms until they block the gallbladder and cause pain and nausea. An unhealthy, high-fat diet is considered as the main factor behind the condition.

The doctors that performed the surgery didn’t expect 12 000 gallstones. “I was astonished to see the large number of stones that we extracted from the gall bladder of this patient. I had never thought a gall bladder could contain so many stones.” Dr. MakhanLalaSaha said. He counted the2-5 mm. stones for 5 hours alongside other doctors. Dr. Lala is a gastrointestinal endiometrosis surgeon at the hospital where the surgery was performed, and he says that he will never forget this case. “I was astonished to see the large number of stones that we extracted from the gall bladder of this patient. I had never thought a gall bladder could contain so many stones,” he says.
