A man in Vietnam has been living with surgical scissors in his stomach for 18 YEARS!
Ma Van Nhat, 54 years old, discovered he had a pair of surgical scissors in his abdomen on December 27 after a routine medical check up, according to The Huffington Post. The scissors were found on the left side of his stomach, right next to his colon. They were even stuck to his organs… ouch. Nhat claims he rarely felt pain and thought the occasional pain was just due to ulcers.
The scissors have been thought to be in Nhat’s body since 1998 after a surgery following a car crash he had been involved in. The hospital’s director, Trinh Thi Luong, is working hard to find out who made this fatal mistake.
“Even if they are already retired, we will still inform them….This is a lesson to all doctors.”
Ma Van Nhat has been released from the hospital this week and we are wishing him a speedy recovery!
