Scissors Stuck in Man’s Stomach Since 1998 Finally Removed
You can forgive this man for complaining about sharp pains in his stomach.
Doctors in Vietnam recently removed a pair of scissors that had been lodged in a man’s belly for the last 18 years. The scissors measured about six inches long and the victim, identified as 54-year-old Ma Van Nhat, never whined about being in pain. In fact, doctors only discovered the scissors last month when he decided to get checked out after Nhat was in a car crash.
An ultrasound revealed something odd in his stomach, near the colon. That item turned out to be a pair of scissors, which officials believe had been left there after he had surgery in 1998.
The man’s condition is unclear and we can only hope that he, ahem, cut ties with the doctor who performed the surgery that caused the problem.
