Li Fu of China had a knife stuck in his brain for 4 yearsFebruary 18th, 2011 - 12:14 am ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
London, Feb 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) For more than four years, a Chinese man walked around with a knife in his head.
The man, Li Fu, only got to know that he had a 4-inch blade in his brain when he visited his doctor for a recurring migraine. When the doctor recommended an x-ray to properly identify what was wrong with Fu, they were both shocked with the results.
The results showed the knife resting in the brain of the 37-year-old. There is an explanation at to why the knife got into the brain of Fu. He was stabbed in the head during a robbery back in 2006. He survived after treatment at the hospital. What the doctors however failed to notice was that the stab had left a blade in the brain of Fu.
When his family saw the X-ray result, they thought the hospital was kidding so they sent him for another scan at a second place. The result was similar to the earlier one and it confirmed that Fu had a real problem in his head.
An operation had been performed to remove the blade from Fu’s brain. One of the doctors that worked on Fu was shocked by the whole incident.
Dr. Luo Zhiwei told the Daily Mail that, “It’s a medical miracle. The knife was almost intact when we removed it.”
