But two days later, the woman returned to the hospital and doctors did a CT scan on her. Doctors initially cited a gallbladder issue when the 30-year-old arrived at a hospital in Western Australia complaining of stomach pain. She was treated and released.

"She was so unwell that we had to take her to theatre straight away to extract whatever it was, and it turned out to be a seven-centimetre piece of orthodontic wire from braces she had 10 years earlier".

"We saw that in the middle quite a large loop of dilated, unhappy bowel with this foreign body that could possibly have been a fish bone, because that is what we see more commonly". She hadn't worn braces on her teeth for 10 years, but the wire apparently came from her braces. She also notes that "when we went to ask the patient if she remembered swallowing anything, she had no recollection".

It wasn't until Shepherd and the other doctors did a CT scan that they discovered an object had punctured several places in the woman's small intestine.

"I think it was probably just sitting there. the whole time", Shepherd told CNN.

Alabama mom's back-to-school picture makes splash on social media
An Alabama mom is taking social media by storm for the photo she posted of her kids going back to school. Willingham wrote in the post that has since been shared over 11,000 times.

She pointed out that the case was a rare occurrence. "There might be a higher chance if you're sedated and undergo a dental procedure", Shepherd said.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Pat Raymond said that it was odd that the patient didn't remember swallowing the wire.

Doctors say it's likely the woman swallowed it without knowing, where it stayed until they removed it by surgery.

"It's incredibly common in my professions to see people who have swallowed things", said Raymond, adding that the objects swallowed would often vary depending on whether patients had swallowed them by mistake or on goal.
