Scissors taken out from man’s stomach after two years

Raipur, Jan 2 ( Doctors took out a pair of scissors from a 60-year-old man’s stomach that a doctor had forgotten to remove after an operation two years ago.

The latest surgery took three long hours and was conducted late Friday at a government hospital in Chhattisgarh’s Durg district, about 40 km from here, senior surgeon D.C. Jain told Inditop.

Jain said the patient, Dhruv Verma, was a resident of Bemetara in Durg district. The scissors were apparently left behind by a private doctor in December 2007.

“The patient is doing well and he is likely to be discharged within a week,” Jain said over telephone. “The patient had been in unbearable pain for the last two years.”
