Initially, the doctors suspected the case of food poisoning. However, the X-rays result showed the real cause of the problems. The doctors found many foreign objects in the man stomach.
In the words of Dr Priyank Sharma, who led the surgery, as reported by CNN “He had been complaining of the pain for the last one month. After the general examination, we found that he had an infection in the abdomen and low blood pressure, he was in a critical condition”
The cause of pain was graver than their anticipation. Dr Priyank further added “We had suspicions that there was something else because his family had expressed doubts that he was consuming unnatural, abnormal things. So, we did an X-ray and ultrasound of the abdomen”
The objects in the stomach ranged from coins to razor blades. During the surgery, a laparoscope was used to remove the objects.
In the words of Dr APS Gaharwal, head of the general surgery department”We discovered in his stomach nut bolts, chains, 263 coins and around 100 nails. The surgery took three hours to perform,”
The surgery was successful and the patient is now recovering.
