Doctor Leaves Man Feeling A Bit Congested

By Compiled From Wire Services

A man with a stuffed-up nose is breathing easier since he pulled out a cloth - from inside his head.

Goeran Rudolfsson had been bothered by congestion since having an operation on a brain tumor in June. Blowing his nose one day last week, he felt something peculiar, Swedish newspapers reported Tuesday.

It turned out to be a 31-inch-long cloth that had been placed in his head during the operation to absorb fluids - and inadvertently left there, the reports said.

Rudolfsson was able to grab one end of the cloth, and pulled the whole thing out.

Officials at University Hospital in Umeaa, 310 miles north of Stockholm, were distressed by the oversight. But Rudolfsson took it in stride.

“In any case, they didn’t amputate the wrong leg or ear,” he said, Svenska Dagbladet reported.
