A Brazilian man, Anthony Kullkamp Dias, set an example before the world as he sang and played guitar while undergoing brain surgery. The 33-year-old banker went under surgery to remove his brain tumor in Hospital Nossa Senhora da Conceicao. He showed amazing courage as he sang six songs including 'Yesterday' by The Beatles.
Dias said, "I came to know about my tumor few days before his son was born and that's why I even dedicated my original number 'Emanuel' to my son."
AdvertisementDr. Jean Abreu Machado, the anesthesiologist and clinical director at the hospital, explained, "The brain tissue does not have sensors to pain, that's why it was a challenge for us to keep the patient awake and pain-free. Dias was awake during his surgery and now 90% of his tumor has been removed."
