Here’s an honest mistake that could happen to anybody.
A guy comes into the hospital for a circumcision (this isn’t a joke setup), you put him under for surgery and something goes wrong.
Yadda, yadda, yadda.
He wakes up without a penis.
That’s the horrifying allegation brought by a lawsuit against Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama by one supremely unlucky guy who claims he was never warned that amputation was even a remote risk with the procedure.
“When the plaintiff … awoke from his aforesaid surgical procedure, his penis was amputated,” the suit reads.
It contends that he has suffered additional/extended pain and suffering during his recovery, has spent additional time in the hospital recovering, and has been caused to spend more money. The man’s wife also claims loss of consortium.
Which we’d say is putting it extraordinarily mildly.
No dollar amounts are mentioned (nor why he wanted to get circumcised in the first place — we can’t be the only ones who wish they’d never been snipped), but if the alleged events are true, we’d recommend a nice round number followed by six or seven zeroes.
