This strange happy ending story comes from England. Here's what happened to an engineer
After yet another postponement of the operation which he had to undergo for some time, Graham Smith was unable to do so and decided to think about it on his own.
Smith, an English engineer, underwent an intestinal surgery operation 15 years ago. Despite the success of the operation, some points remained protruding from his abdomen, causing him various problems. He then returned to the hospital for some annoyances, but was put on a very long waiting list.
Increasingly concerned about possible complications, Smith decided to work alone, using titanium tools made by modifying some instruments he had from a dentist friend.
Despite the risky move, the operation was a success. But Smith explains that he does not want to be taken as an example: "I am an engineer, so I can do some things that others would not know. Obviously I'm not a surgeon, so this is something not to try at home".
Even a spokesman for the British surgeons' order remembers how it can be dangerous to try to work alone: the risk of infections is high, which could even be fatal. The hospital in Liverpool where Smith was on the waiting list reported that he will follow the man in the post-operative period, to ensure that there are no other problems.
