I had some granulation tissue excised which occurred after tearing after the birth of my baby. The gynecologist left a cotton wool swab, about 5cm square, inside me. I did not find it until 5 weeks after the procedure by which time it had become infected with mold and bacteria. Disgusting. I am applaud no swab count is done and this mistake was made.
