Kidney stone the size of a coconut

The largest kidney stones most doctors ever get to see is the size of a golf ball and this one is the size of a coconut. An they removed it.
Sandor Sarkadi underwent an abdominal operation in Debrecen, 150 miles east of Budapest (Hungary), after doctors discovered he had a kidney stone inside him that was 17 centimetres in diameter.

Mr Sardaki was rushed into an operation theatre in the Kenez Gyula Hospital when an X-ray revealed he was carrying around the gigantic lump.

The delicate procedure to remove the stone, which weighed a staggering 2.48lbs, passed without incident.

Looks like photoshop? New tunnel airport scanners in UK and Singapore (coming to US) can check for kidney stones.
