A hospital in the southern Vietnamese province of Dong Nai said on Monday that its doctors had successfully removed a 0.5-kilogram stone that is as large as an apple from the urinary bladder of a 61-year-old local man.

T.C., who lives in Long Khanh City in Dong Nai, was admitted to the Long Khanh General Hospital late last month for bladder problems that caused him to experience difficulty urinating and fatigue for days, according to the infirmary.

After medical examinations, doctors discovered a huge stone bigger than an adult’s palm inside the man’s bladder.

Doctors conducted an open bladder surgery to remove the stone as it was too large for any other stone removal procedure, said Dr. Ho Huynh The Bao from the hospital’s urology department.

As the patient also suffered from primary bladder neck obstruction and an enlarged prostate, the surgeons performed a slit on the man’s bladder neck to treat these diseases, Bao said.

C. is now in a stable condition and has been discharged from the hospital.
