(THE STAR) — BERLIN—A lawyer in Germany claims surgeons left up to 16 objects in her client’s body after an operation for prostate cancer.

Annette Corinth says doctors removed a needle, compresses and surgical strips from banker Helmut Brecht after his wounds failed to heal properly following surgery in 2009.

The 77-year-old ex-banker died last year and his family is seeking $106,216 in damages for his suffering, plus costs, from the Henriettenstift hospital in Hannover.
