“In 2003, from my left bicep, a doctor removed a strange conical object 10 mm long and 3 mm in diameter.
That day, I went to the hospital and went for an operation to remove a mole from my shoulder. And next to that place, for several years already I felt something small but firm under the skin. When the doctor found this object, he suggested removing it too.
A few words about this object. It did not cause me any inconvenience, but I clearly felt it under the skin and even sometimes played with it, pinching it with my fingers and moving it to another place also under the skin. I also did not feel pain.
I lay down on the table and received a local anesthetic in my arm. I was lying on my back and clearly saw all the manipulations of the surgeon with the scalpel. So he hid the skin and discovered this object, but it turned out to be not so easy to remove, it looked like it had “roots” and was attached to something.
Around him were dense growths of tissue, similar to cartilage, and in order to pull the object out of me, the doctor had to cut off all these white growths. I saw that these growths were wrapped around the object like thin tiny "noodles".
The object itself looked like obsidian stone (dark and speckled), but unlike obsidian, it did not have a shiny surface and did not look like metal. However, when the surgeon finally cut it out of me and threw it into a glass jar, it emitted a characteristic steel “clink”. I will never forget this sound.
Then I asked if I could get the results of the study of this object later when the doctor said that he would send them to the laboratory. And the doctor replied with something indistinct, like "Shut up." In general, he was a very taciturn doctor and reserved, so I did not understand if he was puzzled by this object or if he became interested in him and I interfered with his questions.
Then he put neat stitches on me, and before that I managed to notice that this object, despite its small size, occupied a very neat area in my hand, as if it had been deliberately built in so that it would not interfere with anything. After the scar had healed, it was already difficult to distinguish the seam at this place.
Later I tried to find out if something had been received in the laboratory about my object and at first I received only excuses, and then no information at all. I never found out what it was.
A few years later, I think in 2007, I saw on TV a report on the discovery of a meteorite in the United States and when they showed this stone, I realized that its surface is very similar to the surface of an object pulled out of my hand. Even its shape was similar, also conical."
