WHILE having a tumour removed from his brain, the patient provided his surgeons an impressive soundtrack including a cover of â€˜Yesterdayâ€™ by the Beatles.
Anthony Kulkamp Dias, 33, played various some other Brazilian country songs and even a tune of his own invention during the nine-hour surgery.
Mr Kulkamp Dias said: â€˜I played six songs at determined moments.
â€˜My right hand was a bit weaker because that was the side that they were operating on. So I stopped and rested.
â€˜I was interspersing songs and talking with them.â€™
This was no publicity stunt for the Nossa Senhora de ConceiÃ§Ã£o Hospital in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina.
Having the bank worker plays his guitar and talk to surgical staff- his doctors would be able to check that his ability for cognitive function is not damaged.
Daily Mail reported that the hospitalâ€™s spokesperson said: â€˜While it surprised everyone, the surgery was performed.â€™
â€˜Cerebral monitoring â€“ important to prevent injuries that occur in the sensory, motor and speech areas â€“ occurred during the procedure.â€™ – http://metro.co.uk/
