World’s Weirdest X-rays

This is one of the strangest stories I have ever heard.  This Chinese woman had been complaining of chronic rhinitis for years. She said her nose always had pus coming from it. She suffered from horrible headaches and breathing difficulties. 

When a CAT scan was finally performed, it revealed a metallic object in one of her nostrils. When doctors used an endoscope to remove the foreign object, they were shocked to see that it was actually a bullet.  

The woman said that 48 years prior (when she was just 14) she remembered being hit with something that she thought was a pebble and she bled a lot.  It was bandaged at the time and eventually healed.  Now, 48 years later this woman can finally breath properly again…amazing! ‘I should thank the bullet that it didn’t take my life 48 years ago, otherwise I wouldn’t have my family and my life now.’ the woman said.
