amsterdam - A team of surgeons has made a mind-boggling discovery during the operation of a 35-year-old Indier. The man had suffered from stomach pain for several months, but did not find it necessary to mention that he had unusual eating habits. When Maksud Khan went under the knife, 273 coins and 100 nails were found in his stomach.
'The patient had complaints about abdominal pain for three months and himself thought he had a food poisoning among the members. We therefore decided to perform an endoscopy ', says doctor Priyank Sharma against India Today. 'We were shocked when we all found coins, nails and nut bolts in his stomach. We had never seen this before. '
In total they removed 1.5 kilograms of bolts, a dozen razor blades, glass splinters, stones and a rusted chain of 15 centimeters from his belly.
According to the doctors, Khan would have been depressed, causing him to become addicted to eating metal objects. Every time the man drove his three-wheeled taxi and got a tip, he ate the coins. Khan would meanwhile have put an end to his remarkable addiction.
