Man finds piece of car in him 51 years later

It was later discovered through an x-ray exam of the man that there was a foreign object located inside his arm that had triggered the alarm. The man soon began to notice a growing irritation in his arm that was causing him pain and distress without using it. The man went to see if his doctor could shed some light on the subject of what could be done to alleviate the situation. The doctor indicated the large metal object would have to be removed from his arm.
