Louisville looks like a pretty dangerous place to live!
WLKY reports that a man went to Louisville hospital last year for a circumcision and awoke to find his penis gone. He's suing the doctors who performed the operation, saying that he never gave consent for the operation. The doctors' attorney says the penis was severed because the man had cancer of the penis. Watch the video here. (This is a report on what happened, not surgical video.)
In another recent report, WLKY reports on a teen who was impaled by a set of deer antlers.
Shock factor aside, the first report is a good example of why you need a communicative, respectful doctor. Without that kind of a relationship, you're pretty much at their mercy when you're on the table.
