New Delhi :  

A 56 year-old man from Kota is doing rounds on social networking sites as quite surprisingly he has ended up swallowing around 150 pins and needles.

Being completely unknown from the fact he has been leading a normal life and it is recently that he had started facing problems in eating food, walking, sitting and doing other every day activities.

The wonder man namely Badrilal is basically a resident of Kota and an Indian Railways staff by profession.

Several number of reputed hospitals through out the country have already refused to conduct the surgery as doctors have find it a bit challenging to take out all the pins out of his body.

Moreover, his diabetes and other kins of illness of Badrilal have further made the procedure more complicated and harder to carry out the process successfully.

Talking about one of this hardest surgeries Dr. Lalit Mohan Parashar, director, ENT, Asian Institute of Medical Sciences said, "When Badrilal came to us, he was in a very serious condition. Fragile, unable to talk or eat, the chances of his survival were bleak. But we decided to go ahead and accept this unique challenging case".

"At first, we carried out a CT scan besides an endoscopic procedure for proper diagnosis and we were astonished to discover that he had more than 150 pins pierced in different parts of his body. Majority of the pins were pricked in the neck. The most challenging task was to remove those pins which were pierced in the vital nerves, arteries and organs like respiratory and food pipe, esophagus and the carotid artery (which supplies blood to our brain)," he was quoted further while interacting with reporters.

"The medical team was extra cautious while removing the pins from the carotid artery and vocal cord as a small error would have led him to coma, another big hurdle in the surgical procedure was to use anesthaesia in Badrilal’s case. Dr. Adil Rizwi, cardiac surgeon, Asian Institute of Medical Sciences said, “"In this case, we used tracheostomy procedure and ensured that the pins be removed with great precision because our neck is very complex as vital nerves pass through it. These nerves continuously supply blood to our brain and oxygen to other parts of the body. If the flow is disrupted, it can be fatal," Dr. Parashar added further.

However, at present doctors have permitted Badrilal to lead a completely normal and healthy life ahead like all other persons of his age and will keep him under observation for safety's sake.
