Rajasthan: An Indian man was swallowed not one, not two, but 56 blades or their fragments, after which he was brought to the hospital and after a complex operation, all the blades were removed and his life was saved.
Yashpal Singh, a 26-year-old man from Rajasthan, swallowed 56 blades one after the other. After a while, he started bleeding from the mouth and was rushed to the hospital after experiencing unbearable stomach pain.
After being taken to Medi Plus Hospital, the doctors performed an ultrasound followed by an endoscopy. It was confirmed that there were countless blades in his stomach. After that, he was treated under the leadership of Dr. Narsi Ram Devasi.
Doctors noticed that Yashpal Singh had cut marks on his neck and his body was swollen in places. In this unusual situation, seven doctors operated for three hours and the blades stuck in the stomach were carefully removed. The doctors noticed that the patient was also bleeding internally from the bruises in his stomach and other places.
Yashpal Singh had swallowed three packets of blades and the plastic attached to them had melted, after which the blades started causing pain and damage to the body.
According to the doctors, the reason for this has not been revealed yet, but it may have been caused by a mental disorder or depression. Now the condition of the patient is out of danger.
