A mother of two children has undergone an operation at Matale hospital to remove a 3 feet long piece of gauze from her stomach.

M. Senehelatha of Galakiriyagama, off Dambulla who had earlier undergone a surgical operation at Dambulla Hospital to remove her womb was admitted to Matale Hospital recently when she complained of a stomach ache.

It is believed that the piece of gauze had been left in the stomach during the earlier operation to remove the womb. According to sources at Matale hospital, the patient is now recuperating in the Intensive Care Unit after the operation.

Meanwhile, Minster of Health, Central Province, Champika Wijeratne has ordered the Secretary to his ministry to probe the matter and submit a report. He said that action would be taken against those responsible for the lapse, irrespective of their positions.
