Surgeons find 263 coins, 100 nails in man's stomach

Surgeons shocked to find 263 coins and 100 nails in stomach of man with suspected food poisoning

Khan's family think he began to eat metal objects after developing depression, but said he did not inform anyone of his freakish eating habits.

Amazingly enough, the coins and nails did not cause any problems right away.

In a freaky incident, the doctors in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa district removed nearly five kilograms of metal objects from a man's the stomach.

According to a PTI report, 35-year old Maksud Khan underwent a very complex surgery after he complained of severe abdominal pain.

"We come across such a case for the first time in our career", said Dr Priyank Sharma, who led the surgical team, which removed a total of seven kilograms of assorted junk.

The 35-year-old had kept his freakish eating habits to himself, but surgeons found 263 coins, 100 nails and dozens of razor blades. Some of the items that pica sufferers eat include hair, paint, paper, stones, soil, feces, glass, and metal.

Young hails Man Utd pal Lindelof: He inspired the crowd
Richarlison is one of the most in-form players in the league amassing 5 goals and 3 assists for the Hornets already. Manchester United are expected to rotate their squad a bit after making seven changes each in the last two games.

"This man looks mentally unstable as no sane person would do something like this", the Independent quoted him as saying. "Usually, people start eating abnormal things under certain psychological conditions. He had been eating metal for a year but did not tell anyone", Dr. APS Geharwar, Head of Department-surgery at the hospital told the Times Of India.

Another doctor said the condition was caught in the nick of time.

Khan worked as a three-wheeler driver, the doctors said, and would take to swallowing coins that customers had given him. What is startling is that Maqsood was being treated for six months in his native place for stomach ache before he was brought to Rewa.

Khan's relatives said he was suffering from depression, which may have triggered the habit.

According to reports, Maqsood never felt any pain due to the presence of foreign objects in his body initially.

Specialists said Khan was in stable condition, with no enduring harm to his inner organs and a guarantee from Khan that he wouldn't do it once more.
