Doctors: With Pencil Removed from Woman's Head, Pain Should Subside
The removal should end her chronic headaches and nosebleeds, said Dr. Hans Behrbohm.
??? um ... that seems logical ...
A woman in Germany who has spent 55 years with part of a pencil inside her head has finally had it removed.
Margret Wegner fell over carrying the pencil when she was four. It punctured her cheek and part of it went into her brain, above the right eye.
The 59-year-old has suffered headaches and nosebleeds for most of her life.
