    The routine op should have been a snip - but Veronika Cruz, 35, was left in agony for three years after surgeons left a huge pair of scissors inside her.

    Bungling medics had left the eight-inch long scissors behind during an operation to remove her ovaries in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    But doctors dismissed her complaints that something was wrong until she collapsed in agony years later and this X ray revealed the truth.

    A spokesman for the Sao Paulo medical council said: 'There was damage to her intestine and her other ovary, which had to be removed. We are investigating.'
