Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

Thread: Man unaware of 5 inch knife in skull

    Man unaware of 5 inch knife in skull

    Found this article on ircspy.com

    Hospital staff treating a retired school teacher for a headache found a five inch knife blade wedged in his head.

    The discovery was made after doctors X-rayed Leonard Woronowicz to see if he had cracked his skull in a fall while climbing over a stool in his kitchen four days earlier. Instead they found a blade that had penetrated the 61-year-old's head just below his right ear. It had snapped off at the handle without touching any major blood vessels or nerves - or causing any lasting damage.

    He said: "I thought they might give me an aspirin, instead they pulled a five inch knife blade out of my head."

    Woronowicz, from the Polish town of Wojnowice, said he had tripped over the stool while doing work in his kitchen. He said: "I had some tools and other gadgets scattered on the kitchen floor where I had been doing the work when I tripped. The blade from the kitchen knife must have pierced my head then. My head hurt a bit, but I was convinced that it was from the fall. There was a small gash on the side of my head near my ear, but I thought it would soon heal and did not make much of it. I put a plaster (medical dressing) on it and left it."

    He added: "I didn't even guess what had happened when the next day I wanted to cut a piece of bread but couldn't find the kitchen knife. Despite carefully searching the room I could only find the handle. But I forgot about it as my headaches got worse over the next few days, and I decided to go to a hospital." That was a good call, Leo.

    Local doctors were bewildered at the sight of the X-ray pictures and immediately called for an ambulance to take the patient to the Biaystok regional centre hospital in Northern Poland.

    Surgeons pulled the five inch blade out of his skull in an operation that took just a few minutes. The blade had gone into his head from the side near his right ear. Dr Marek Rogowski from the Bialystok hospital said a surgeon could not have made a better job of placing the knife so that it missed all vital bones, nerves and blood vessels. He said: "We have found objects in patients' bodies before, but this is unprecedented."

    There was a programme on TV rescently called '101 things removed from a human body', it was so nasty, people got javlins through thier heads and stuff. This one guy managed to swallow over 200 rusty nails.

    This is probably real, at least cases similar to his have been. I was reading about a case where a railroad worker got a huge railroad spike sent through his skull, but he was able to live. I went and saw the spike in a nearby university's museum not too long ago also

    Sure, plenty of people have had strange things in their heads, but not to know about a five inch kinfe just tops it off.
