A Canadian man finally found the reason behind the annoying back pains he'd been having over the past three years, he had a knife stuck in his back.
According to the National Post, Billy McNeely, 32, was scratching his back Monday when his nail suddenly flicked something sharp sticking from his body.
All of a sudden it all made sense.
McNeely had been dealing with back aches ever since he was stabbed five times at a party in 2010.
When he told doctors that he set off metal detectors and had a lump in his back, doctors and nurses attributed the symptoms to metal fragments lodged in his bones and nerve damage.
McNeely rushed to the emergency room as soon as he realized there was a blade in his body. Doctors dug out a 3.5 inch long blade from his back.
Thought the 32-year-old wasn't permanently injured by the blade, he is disappointed with the health system and the way he was treated.
McNeely is currently considering a lawsuit against the health center in Fort Good Hope, the clinic where he was treated after he was stabbed.
