Doctors remove chopstick from Chinese man’s stomach after 28 years

The man, identified by his surname Zhang, had gone decades without having the chopstick removed because it had not caused him any trouble, the official China Daily reported.
Zhang thought he had completely digested the chopstick until he started having stomach problems and sought medical attention after he passed out, the Oriental Morning Post newspaper reported.

It was then that doctors spotted the remains of the chopstick inside Zhang, the Post said, citing Zhang Dongwei, one of the surgeons at Tongji Hospital.
The surgeons slowly extracted it through a small incision in his stomach, the report said.
The reports did not say when the operation took place, nor whether the chopstick was made of wood or plastic.
Neither report had an explanation for why the man swallowed the chopstick, saying only that he was in “an agitated emotional state” at the time.
