Doctors Remove More Than 600 Nails from Man's Stomach

Doctors Remove More Than 600 Nails from Man's Stomach”

In a rare case, doctors at the Calcutta Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) have successfully removed 639 nails from the stomach of a 45-year-old man with mental disabilities.

"The patient is from Gobardanga in the Northern Territory of Parganas 24". He had a complaint of pain in the stomach and used to vomit regularly.

It was only after the doctors began the operation on Monday did they find his stomach was brimming with nails of different sizes.

While Dhali's family knew about his habit of eating inanimate objects, they never imagined he was capable of eating so many nails.

"He is mentally disbalanced and has a habit of swallowing odd things".

The human stomach is home to strong acid that breaks down the food we consume, but there are some things that even our stomach acids can not break down, for example, metal nails.

The man, suffering from schizophrenia, had swallowed the nails over a period of time.

The man had swallowed the nails over a period of time. Claiming the operation to be a risky one, surgeon Siddhartha Biswas, who headed the medical team, said the patient was now out of danger as the nails did not pierce or injure his stomach in any way in spite of being inside for days. "The nails are mostly bigger than 2 inches and quite sharp".

Dr Biswas stated that the patient is now stable, adding, "We are keeping him under observation before he is given a fitness certificate".
