But when the doctors performed endoscopy, ultrasound and X-ray examinations, they were surprised to find all the items. The patient underwent emergency surgery at the same medical center, Metro reported.
“During the surgery, we saw that one or two of the nails went through the stomach wall. We saw that there were two pieces of metal and two different-sized stones in the large intestine. We found that there were batteries, magnets, nails, coins, shards of glass and screws. We clean your stomach completely”said one of the surgeons involved in the operation.
