Man Scissored For 18 Years


Surgeons have recently removed a pair of surgical scissors that were lying dormant within the abdomen of a Vietnamese man for over 18 years, an event surmised to be due to the negligence of a doctor from his previous surgery.

The misplaced instrument was discovered during a medical check, prompting an operation to remove the six-inch rusted scissors that were located next to his colon and apparently stuck to his organs.

Surprisingly enough, the afflicted man had felt no pain until very recently, with his doctor occasionally prescribing ulcer medication – an image of the ancient scissors:


Pondering about where he could have possibly picked up the foreign object, the Vietnamese man recalled a surgery he had in 1998 due to a traffic accident, resulting in his current doctor desperately seeking out the surgeon of that particular case – if he or she is still even employed in the medical field or even still alive.

    Almost certainly a case of the doctor being overworked/fatigued and forgetting to remove during the surgery. It doesn't happen very often, but Nurses for example in the UK work 12 hour shifts. I'm sure Doctors have long hours too. Especially if its emergency surgery and they have no one else available. That can keep someone at work for longer than scheduled.

    12 hour shifts in the medical field are not that rare. plus another 12 hours stand by.
    often filled back to back with operations and other shit.

    "lost" equipment? totaly normal. yes, it's malpractice, but I want to believe they count the stuff afterwards. at least have to, but if they do...

    They're supposed to count all tools before the start of the procedure and before wound closure and after.

    Some hospitals may use bar codes or RFID tags to assist in keeping track of items in that everything is scanned before and after surgery.
    The latter of course would not be used in Vietnam esp nearly 20 years ago.

    If the patient still there, the RFID scanner would say all tools are still there :D

    Fun to bash supposedly underdeveloped countries but this happens to most doctors around the globe around every other decade.

    Only difference westerners have is they use equipment with chips which sends distress signals if left inside too long to prevent/notify in case of being forgotten in there.

    Y'all can now safely get those sex change operations.

    I think the actual joke wasn't to have a pair of scissors left inside him, but for no doctor realizing the fact for 18 years...
