DONGGUAN, Guangdong - A man who said he woke up in a local hotel to find his left kidney had been removed is now recovering in Machong People's Hospital in the southern Pearl River Delta city.

"The man, surnamed Shu, is in stable condition, and he is recovering after treatment," a doctor from the hospital, who declined to be named, told China Daily on Monday.

The doctor would not give additional details about the 28-year-old migrant worker from Southwest China's Chongqing municipality.

According to the Guangzhou-based Nanfang Daily, Shu arrived at Machong People's Hospital by taxi on the night of Feb 23.

He said he had woken up on Thursday in a small hotel and felt a stomachache, and he found 20,000 yuan ($3,200) in his pockets.

He then took a taxi by himself to the hospital to see doctors after finding a wound in his stomach.Doctors were shocked to discover that Shu's kidney had been removed and they immediately notified the police.

Shu said he had lost his memory for four days and he did not know what had happened to him.

"I arrived in Dongguan looking for job opportunities on Feb 13, and I only remembered I was in Dongguan's Wanjiang district on Feb 19," Shu's doctors quoted him as saying.

The doctors said his stomach wound had been stitched up for several days when he arrived at the hospital, and they concluded his kidney had been removed by professional medical workers.

Shu did not want to answer questions from police officers and doctors, the report said.
