London, Feb 17 (ANI): A Chinese man, who visited a doctor to complain about continuous migraines, was shocked when he was told that he had a 4in knife blade stuck in his brain.

Li Fu, 37, from Yunnan Province, China, had been stabbed during a robbery in 2006, and despite receiving treatment for his injuries, doctors failed to notice the knife buried deep in his cranium.

It wasn’t until Li visited the doctor last month to complain of his continuous migraines that doctors finally made the grim discovery after a routine X-ray.

Li and his family were so shocked by the X-ray results, they asked for a second opinion before agreeing to let doctors operate.

The second doctor confirmed the suspicions and Li underwent an operation to remove the knife at People’s Hospital in Yuxi City, Yunnan Province.

Luo Zhiwei, a surgeon at People’s Hospital of Yuxi said he had never seen anything so bizarre in his entire career.

He said it was a miracle that Li could survive being stabbed in the head, let alone survive having the knife lodged in his brain for four years.

“It’s a medical miracle. The knife was almost intact when we removed it,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying. (ANI)
