Doctors performing surgery on a man believing it to be a case of severe food poisoning were in for a shock when the reason for the patient's abdominal pains turned out to be 263 coins and 100 nails sitting in his stomach. Doctors first suspected food poisoning until carrying out an endoscopy - only to discover a trove of metal objects inside.

Maksud Khan, 35, from Sohaval in Satna district in Madhya Pradesh, India, was admitted to the Sanjay Gandhi Medical College and Hospital in Rewa, Madhya Pradesh on November 18, as he complained of abdominal pains and doctors performed an endoscopy to investigate the cause of the pain.

The objects included 10-12 shaving blades, four big needles, a chain, 263 coins, besides pieces of glasses in a surgery conducted at Sanjay Gandhi Medical College and Hospital on Friday, said a PTI report.

One doctor who operated on Mr Khan said while the coins and nails hadn't caused any problems initially, they were close to causing him serious harm.

An operation by surgeons at Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in Satna, Madhya Pradesh, India, led to a whopping 7kg of foreign objects being removed from Mr Khan's stomach.
