It was back in October 2007 when the woman from Ångermanland in northern Sweden suffered from the medical mishap.
The incident is now being reported by the county hospital in Sundsvall-Härnösand to the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen), as stipulated by Sweden’s Lex Maria rules governing medical accidents.
The Västernorrland County Council, which manages the hospital, said in a statement that the operation’s complexity may have contributed to the mistake.
