Doctors Remove Coins, Nails, Glass From Man's Stomach

The 35-year-old, who had been complaining of stomach pains for three months, is believed to suffer mental health problems and his family and friends had no idea of his weird eating habits.

Ever felt hungry so much you'd eat a nail or a coin?

Surgeons at Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in Satna, Madhya Pradesh, India rushed Khan to the operating room and removed seven kilos' worth of foreign objects.

Maksud Khan, 35, came into the hospital and was admitted for abdominal pains.

"We have removed 263 coins of Rs two, five and 10 denominations as well as nails and broken iron chains from the stomach", a media report quoted one of the doctors, who operated on him, as saying.

The Daily News said following an endoscopy, it was determined that the cause of the his pain was due to metal objects in his stomach.

The posh auction gathered around 800,000 viewers, Xinhua reported, adding that the deals were reached after 26 bids. Over 330,000 objects have been auctioned there for a total of 460 billion yuan (about 69.6 billion USA dollars).

A team of six doctors including surgeons and anaesthetists operated on Maqsood until 5 kg iron objects including 263 coins and shaving blades and a chain were recovered. "This man looks mentally unstable as no sane person would do something like this", the report said. "He had been eating metal for a year yet did not tell anybody", A.P.S. Geharwar, head of surgery, told Times of India. "In this case, the problems had started", he added. The doctors said the man is now under the observation. He worked as a driver and would often swallow his pay.

According to the man's family, he began eating metal items after he developed depression. 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.

An additional doctor said they caught this problem in the nick of time.

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.
