A 51-year-old man from Shenyang of Liaoning Province who never knew he had two gall bladders and had suffered from the pain of gall stones for many years, recovered after a successful operation in hospital, Shenyang Evening News reports.

The man surnamed Zhang was sent to hospital for gall stone disease. However, as the doctors examined him, they found that he had two gall bladders, one of which had been totally occupied by gall stones. It is very rare that doctors received a patient like Zhang in the hospital. As the doctors found the real reason of the disease, they cut out the bad gall bladder and left the healthy one.
