wow.....

...simply amazing....

BUCHAREST, Romania (Reuters) -- A team of Romanian and U.S. doctors say they have successfully removed a tumor weighing 175 pounds (80 kilograms) from a woman patient in an operation lasting 10 hours.

Lucica Bunghez, 47, had been largely confined to bed because of the tumor, which weighed almost double her body weight and covered her back, waist and hips.

"She is very well, the lack of the tumor really suits her," Ion Lascar, head of the plastic surgery department of Floreasca Hospital in Bucharest, told reporters on Wednesday.

"The lack of the tumor really suits her"??....that doctor needs smacked...hard....now....

Fashionable tumors are all the rage in Bucharest, you know... so it takes a brave woman to buck the trend and go without one.
