Woman kept part of her skull in her tummy for a very good reason9/30/2012
If the story of the woman with an ear growing in her arm wasn't enough to satisfy your craving for stories about bizarre medical advances involving stored body parts, how about his one? A photo has surfaced of a former beauty queen who lived for weeks with part of her skull stashed in her belly. After a near-fatal fall from a concrete embankment, former Mrs. Idaho Jamie Lamb Hilton awoke to find an odd protrusion coming from her stomach. Apparently, docs had needed to keep the skull fragment (and by fragment we mean large, quarter-of-her-head-sized chunk) "safe and nourished" until the swelling subsided and they could reattach it. "It was pretty shocking," said Hilton. "I didn't know they did that." Neither did we, but we're glad she's going to recover. [Source]
Did you know they could do that?
