Doctors Surgically Remove 40 Knives from an Indian Man’s Stomach





Yep, you read that right. An Indian man just decided to swallow knives. All 40 of them. In a span of two months, the Indian man swallowed a total of 40 knives.

Doctors surgically removed from the man’s stomach different types of cutlery, of which some even measured over seven inches long.

According to the attending physician Dr. Jatinder Malhotra, the man was suffering from a mental disorder and is now receiving treatment. Further commenting on the issue, Dr. Malhotra said,

“In my 20-year career, and in all the medical literature that we checked, there has never been a case like this one, where a person has swallowed not one, but 40 knives.”

The man sought medical help two weeks prior complaining of abdominal pain. Doctors thought the patient had a tumor because his endoscopy result revealed a mass in his abdominal area. However, the doctors who operated on him got the shock of their lives when they pulled out knives from his abdomen.

The patient is now recovering from the surgery in a hospital in Punjab.
