A man in India spent two months swallowing knives and had 40 of them surgically removed from his stomach, according to the doctor who led the operation. "He had a wild urge to consume metal. Even for us, the experienced surgeons, it was frightening," Dr. Jatinder Malhotra told CNN.
"We were so nervous... a small mistake could have taken the patient's life. In my 20 years of practice, I have never seen anything like it."
Malhotra said it took his team about two days to form a diagnosis and surgery plan.
Malhotra said they found foldable knives, which when fully extended were about seven inches long. "He [the patient] says he swallowed some knives folded, and some unfolded. When we took out the knives -- some were found folded, some were open, and some had even started rusting and were broken," Malhotra said. The patient, a 42-year-old father of two, told CNN he's feeling much better.
Malhotra says the patient is now "out of danger" and is set to be discharged in a couple of days.

It was really a sworded affair.
Punch him in the gut just save some time on the table. Use chain mail gloves.
Isn't that what the patient was trying to originally do?
I see there is going to be some really sharp humour on this thread.
Was his name Mack?
I think this is where Darwin takes over.
I dunno, since he survived this one he might try swallowing a running chainsaw next.
If the man used more curry powder with the knives, he would have passed them in his bowel movement. Curry speeds up bowel peristalsis. And the turmeric in curry powder is cancer preventer. May explain why stomach and bowel cancer is rare in people who consumer turmeric and do not drink much alcohol.
...straight and to the point....
Did he complain of sharp pains?
I refuse to say “Stabbing pains”. Just not going to do it. Nope.
This reminds me very much of the Republican Presidential primary except Trump had the knives removed from his back
“Was his name Mack?”
It would be pretty funny if he used the Indian name Khabar.
Can you imagine the uproar if he’d ever gone through the line with TSA! Yeah, they’d be all over the 83 year old grandma three places behind Knife Guy.
