Indian man found with 263 coins and 100 nails in his stomach
Doctors initially thought Khan was suffering from food poisoning, but then they soon discovered that the cause of his pain was far more serious.
DELHI, INDIA — Doctors in India who first thought they were treating a man with abdominal pain were shocked to find coins and nails in his stomach.
After complaining of abdominal pains for about a month, 32-year-old Maksud Khan was admitted to Sanjay Gandhi hospital in Delhi on November 19th.
Doctors initially thought Khan was suffering from food poisoning, but then they soon discovered that the cause of his pain was far more serious. The X-ray and ultrasound result revealed multiple metal objects in Khan's abdomen ranging from coins to razor blades.
Khan underwent surgery on November 24 to remove the metal objects, during which a laparoscope was used to find them all. Doctors discovered 263 coins, 1.5 kg of nails, shards of glass, stones, shaving blades, and a rusted iron shackle inside Khan's abdomen.
Doctors said Khan is now in stable condition, and is expected to heal without any long term damage. However, after talking to Khan's family, doctors believed the incident is caused by Khan's depression.
