Despite the excruciating pains Devi was forced to endure, she had agreed with her husband, only agreeing to see a doctor after her husband had died six years ago.

Devi had reportedly discovered that she had been entitled to free treatment as part of an Indian poverty scheme, all along.

The news reports reveal that the surgeons had taken just three hours to remove the massive tumour, which reportedly weighed as much as a large man, from her ovary.

One of the surgeons, Dr A S Jaggi, reveals saying:

"She was in severe pain when she came to the hospital. The tumor had started leaking and it would have turned fatal if there was any further delay. Three units of blood were infused during the surgery and then the patient was kept in ICU for a day. She is recovering well and we’re now waiting to the results of the tests taken on the tumour.

"I’ve never seen such a tumor in my whole career. Ovarian tumors are common but never this big. It must be three feet in length and two feet in width, it's huge. The tumor has now has been sent to a pathology lab for tests."
