An unidentified (for obvious reasons) Scottish woman had a sex toy removed from her vagina 10 years after inserting it during a night of drinking, and then promptly forgetting all about it.

According to an article published by the Daily Mail on July 24, doctors at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, who performed surgery to remove the "foreign object", were amazed that the woman could function normally for so long without seeking medical attention.

That all changed when the 38-year-old woman came to the hospital complaining of "severe weight loss, shaking and lethargy", in addition to "mild incontinence for the last few weeks."

Upon examination of the woman, doctors were startled to find the clearly identifiable sex toy, 5 inches long, lodged deep in her vagina and disrupting other internal organs nearby.

However, given the woman's symptoms, the diagnosis was actually a relief, since removal of the sex toy was easier and safer than treating the patient for other, more serious health problems, mainly an "obstructive uropathy, where a blockage in the bladder causes urine to back up into the kidneys."

The doctors who performed the surgery and treated the anonymous patient reported the story to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, and it was later confirmed to be the longest case ever recorded for a sex toy to be lodged in a woman's vagina.

But, it's far from the record.

According to Death And Taxes, the title belongs to another unidentified woman (naturally) who had a mysterious object removed from her body 35 years after inserting it. By that time, doctors were unable to confirm exactly what the foreign object was, but couldn't rule out the sex toy scenario.

The patient herself was, evidently, unable to remember just what the object was or how it got there in the first place.

Or, as Seinfeld's Kramer would say, "It was a million to one shot, doc. Million to one."
