Doctors Remove The Wrong Testicle Leaving The Man Infernal

The headline tells the story. A man went to a hospital in England (West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds) which was rated as good, woke up to find that the doctors had removed the wrong testicle removed. He had to go back under the knife to have the correct one removed rendering him unnecessarily infertile. (via)

"Care at the hospital had previously been rated "good" by the Care Quality Commission.

The botched op took place last year.

The unnamed patient should have had his right epididymis — a narrow tube connected to the testes — removed but the surgeons took away his left one instead.

A second op was then needed to take away the right one, rendering him totally infertile.
