"Go under the knife" nghĩa là gì?

'To go under the knife' có nghĩa là trải qua phẫu thuật.

Ví dụ
England's best footballer won't play at the World Cup. He's going under the knife and won't recover in time for the start of the tournament.
I had tonsillitis (viêm amiđan) eight times before doctors decided that I needed to go under the knife and have my tonsils removed.

Xin lưu ý
Xin đừng nhầm với 'put to the sword', có nghĩa là giết người/con vật gì.

The captured soldiers should have been kept in a military prison but instead they were put to the sword. Hundreds were killed.

Thực tế thú vị:
Loài người đã sử dụng dao từ ít nhất 2,5 triệu năm. Chúng được làm từ đá, xương và đá lửa (flint).
