ĐỒNG NAI — Doctors from the Đồng Nai International Hospital have successfully removed a 1.2kg tumour from a woman’s gallbladder.
Ngô Hồng Đức, 62, from Vĩnh Cửu District, was hospitalised last Monday with severe stomach pain. Doctors at the hospital said that when she came in, she was unable to eat and had lost 15kg in just two weeks. She was anaemic and very pale.
Investigations revealed that Đức had a large tumour in her gallbladder, which was blocking and affecting the functioning of her various organs. Doctors operated and removed the tumour last Wednesday. Đức is recuperating well after her surgery.
Dr Lê Đình Hùng, deputy director of the hospital, said it was the biggest gallbladder tumour he had seen in his 40 years of experience. — VNS
