It explains that the patient was in severe pain, and was taken to the casualty theatre immediately upon arriving with his mother.
Attempts to remove the ring by sedating the patient with ketamine failed because of excessive swelling. Doctors then attempted to remove the ring with an oscillating saw, but failed because the ring was too wide and thick.
Finally, the doctors injected ‘puncture aspirations’ that eventually reduced the swelling enough to remove the ring.
The patient was treated with antibiotics and he made a full recovery within three days,.
Moral of the story? Your wedding ring belongs on your finger.
