Well, I guess if they still have to cut off the other one, he won't be getting Blue Balls anymore

I heard on the radio today that he's suing for $200,000. I was surprised at the low amount. I'm not saying it should be more or less -- I have no idea what a testicle is worth (?) -- but he shows enormous restraint in this "get everything you can" society.


Edit: Ah, I see that it's $200K and an "undisclosed amount" for damages. That seems more likely.

Poor soul! The pain of having one removed and they cut the wrong one. Man no more testicles for him. That must be a blow to his ego.

What about prosthetic testicles. Anyone remember Joe vs. The Volcano?

What's wrong with Doctors these days? First the Romanian doctor who slices and dices a patient's penis out of rage, and now a urologist who removes the wrong testicle.

I'm gonna think twice about going to the doctor now.  scared

I heard this gentleman and his attorney interviewed on local radio here yesterday. His attorney is also a physician. Whoops. The hospital might as well give this guy a blank check and ask him to please be nice. Normally, the area to be removed is marked with a very prominent "X". That wasn't done, however, in this case. Why not? According to the hospital it was because the area where the procedure was to take place is so tender and private, they didn't mark it. Hmmmm, OK. So you're going to expose the area to who knows how many people in the OR (not to mention any number of medical students looking on from above), you're going to shave the area, and then you're going to plunge a scalpel into the man's nads and lop one off, yet you're worried about marking it beforehand with a magic marker because it's such a private area? When it's all said and done, this guy won't have any balls but he'll be very very rich.

Wait a minute! Balless and rich. Perhaps there's a run for the presidency in this guy's future!

Marking the area to be kept with the words "NOT THIS ONE, STUPID!" is never a bad idea.

That won't work if the nurse that shaves and preps you gives your sack a 180-degree twist and doesn't put it back the right way. Think about it.

Reason enough to be awake during the "shave & prep" portion of the program, if not for the whole operation.

Forgive my ignorance, but in our medically advanced society, can't they put the good one back inside him? Take out the cancerous one, and in its place (or back on the other side), put the good one back in there. But, were it me, I'd say put the good one back in there and make sure everything's going to work right before removing the bad one altogether.

They probably cut the wrong one out. Sent it to pathology to check what type of cancer it was. And the Pathologist probably sliced it up in small pieces, called back and said "there is nothing wrong here". The the Dr. probably had the nurse look in the chart to confirm his worst nightmare. A big increase in his malpractice insurance.

I can only hope that the guy has a family already. They say he's an Air Force veteran which suggests he is not too young anymore, and nothing was mentioned about him loosing a potential family. The only thing he'd be loosing is his sexual life, which is not little, but at least not a family life!

If he doesn't make at least ten times what that lady who burnt herself with a hot cofee from McDonald's did with her lawsuit, every single one of these silly lawsuits that happened till now must be undone retroactively.

Well, that was a real balls up. The guy must be going nuts. If I were him, I'd sack the doctor and find someone with the cajones to tackle the issue.

Not that I've ever heard of it, then, but is there a possibility of a transplant? Someone who's signed the back of their D.L. who could give up his testicles perhaps? It's not like this man had a vastectomy. Just take one (or two) teste(s) and put it/them in this guy. I'm no urologist (obviously), so what are the possibilities of this?
