  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A 75-year-old woman with dementia had her false teeth stuck in her throat for nine weeks after doctors failed to spot she had swallowed them.

Nermin Keating, who lives with her daughter and full-time carer Umit Maddock in Braintree, Essex, swallowed the 11-teeth dentures in November.

Ms Maddock, 46, said her mother was seen by doctors about four times before the teeth were found and removed.

"Everybody thought it was impossible for someone to swallow them," she said.

  • If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

Doctors do not look anymore, they just prescribe pills....whatever brand the pharmaceutical companies tell them to at the time!
