This is scary.
A 72-year-old man had surgery where his false teeth got stuck in his throat and weren't discovered for eight days.
He was having surgery to remove a harmless lump, but the team neglected to take out his dentures prior to the operation.
Six days later he returned to the hospital with blood in his mouth and having a hard time breathing and swalloing.
To resolve the issue, more surgery was needed.
The X-Ray showed the object laying across his vocal cords.
During the first return to the emergency room, doctors weren't able to diagnose the problem.
Two days later he returned with a severe chest infection.
They then found the dentures were stuck.
