MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian doctors performed a successful operation to remove a 53-year-old coin stuck in the nose of a 59-year-old man.
According to international media reports, the coin got stuck in the nose of a Russian citizen when he was playing with it when he was only 6 years old. He hid it for fear of his mother and then forgot the coin.
During this time he never felt any pain, but four years ago, at the age of 55, a Russian citizen had a runny nose and difficulty breathing, so he went to the hospital to see a doctor.
