When Zheng Yanliang was diagnosed with severe arterial thrombosis in both legs, he was told that he had just a month to live, the Daily Star reported.

The 47-year-old farmer explained that one day he waited for his wife to go to bed and then he bit down on a piece of wood to deal with the surge of intense pain that came after he sunk the metal instruments into his flesh.

Neighbours reportedly heard his screams that particular night.

Yanliang's leg has now healed, and a doctor has offered to operate on his infected leg free of charge.
