Choosing not to delay the case any further, the team of doctors prepared the patient for an operation and removed the objects that weighed a staggering 800 gm in total. Doctors also made a discovery that the patient is mentally unsound and also an addict.
The doctor said that the patient had a habit of ‘swallowing everything’ and as he began to complain about continuous pain in his stomach, his family brought him to the government hospital in Udaipur.
Dr Sharma added that the patient is out of danger and is undergoing necessary treatment. In a similar incident in May, a team of doctors removed 116 nails, iron pellet and long wire from the stomach of a middle-aged man.
