Raipur: Doctors took out a pair of scissors from a 60-year-old man's stomach that a doctor had forgotten to remove after an operation two years ago.
The latest surgery took three long hours and was conducted late Friday at a government hospital in Chhattisgarh's Durg district, about 40 km from Raipur city, said senior surgeon DC Jain.
Jain said the patient, Dhruv Verma, was a resident of Bemetara in Durg district. The scissors were apparently left behind by a private doctor in December 2007.
"The patient is doing well and he is likely to be discharged within a week," Jain said over telephone. "The patient had been in unbearable pain for the last two years."
