(Newser) – A 38-year-old female patient was presented with symptoms including mild incontinence, sepsis, lethargy, and unexplained weight loss. Diagnosis: She'd had a sex toy inside her body for 10 years without knowing it, reports the Scottish Daily Record. Doctors in Aberdeen discovered the 5-inch toy, which was pressing against her bladder, after X-raying the woman's abdomen. The woman then recalled using it with a partner a decade ago in a night of drunken love-making, explains Fox News.

Surgeons removed the toy, and the woman is now fine. As goofy as it sounds, the case outlined in the Journal of Sexual Medicine represented a life-threatening condition. The Stir—whose summary of the case begins, "Have you ever found something old and gross underneath the sofa cushions?"—rounds up some life lessons that can be gleaned from the case. Learn them here.
