Knives are Edible!

It is one of the worst cases, history of medical and health sector have ever experienced, when a man in India swallowed 40 knives. The insane person has been doing this since past two months. The 42 years old man had some folded and some exposed blades up to 18 centimeters (7 inches) long when he got operated at a hospital in Punjab.

The patient was a police constable and according to the Indian doctors, he was going through some psychological disorder that needed counseling. However, Indian doctors never heard such a psychiatric case in the history ever. In fact, doctors highlighted that there is no medical literature present on such a case in all the medical books as well.

On being questioned, the man affirmed that he felt a certain urge to swallow knives. There is no reason to do so according to him but he just gets the feeling of swallowing knives with water. Things got worse when after doing it he felt a sharp pain in his abdomen and came to the hospital. Big masses of knives were seen in the endoscopy. Doctors were shocked when they saw it even in an endoscopy.

A successful operation took place under two specialized surgeons, where 28 knives were removed from the abdomen. However, further investigation revealed that there are 12 more. Doctors even regarded the mass as cancerous growth when they saw it in the endoscopy. These knives caused massive internal bleeding in the abdominal region.
