Being pregnant is one of the best things that will ever happen to a woman. This event “typically” completes a woman as a human and as a wife. But what if you thought you are pregnant only to find out it was not a baby, but something shocking. What would you feel?
This is what happened to 42-year-old Madalina Neagu who thought she was pregnant but was left devastated after her ‘baby bump’ turned out to be a tremendous 11lb tumor.
Madalina thought she was pregnant and in labor after she felt a severe pain in her abdomen. Instantly she rushed into the hospital.
But doctors at Botosani County Hospital in Romania were stunned to find out a large tumor inside her uterus after carrying out emergency tests.
Dr. Dorin Scladan said: “As the woman told us she was pregnant, we initially expected pregnancy complications.”
“In fact, the size of her belly was quite similar to that of a nine-month pregnant woman, so we didn’t have any reason to doubt what she told us.” he added.
The doctors had to carry out a complex emergency operation that lasted several hours to remove the 11lb (5kg) tumor.
Madalina Neagu was then transferred to intensive care and was expected to make a full recovery soon.
According to Dr. Scladan, they don’t often see a tumor of that size and in that location. It was indeed a record tumor for the region in the past 15 years.
