Pearls embedded in man's leg

Chinese doctors in Changsha have removed 42 pearls from the body of a 61 year old man Zou Feng, of Hunan province .

Doctors removed pearls from his waist, hips and legs.The surgery was performed last week.

Zou Feng had pearls embedded into his body in 2011 in a bid to rid him of his severe leg pain.

Zou Feng said that after he had complained of suffering from a bad back, a neighbour had told him of the doctor who was supposedly an expert in ancient medicine.
