Canadian man sues Montreal hospital for 'botched' surgery he claims reduced his penis by an inch
The man claims doctors failed to spot a fracture he sustained during sex
A Canadian man is suing a hospital for £90,000 for negligence after he claimed botched surgery on his penis reduced it by one inch and led to the collapse of his marriage.
The unidentified man, from the Montreal suburb of Repentigny, is seeking damages from the Le Gardeur hospital for allegedly misdiagnosing a fracture he sustained to his penis during intercourse in 2011.
He claims a nurse at the hospital did not physically examine his penis before sending him home and the fracture was not spotted by an off-site urologist, The Toronto Sun reports.
The man said he was unable to have sex with his wife in the weeks after and was eventually taken back into hospital, where doctors discovered the extent of his injury.
Surgery to treat his penis left a “permanent scar” on his genitals and reduced its length by about an inch, according to the lawsuit filed.
The operation also prevented him from being sexually active for a further two years, a period during which he and his wife seperated.
“This has caused a greater impact on my life than when I lost the use of my legs,” the paraplegic plaintiff told QMI Agency.
He is suing the hospital for negligence and the “indescribable anguish” he says the ordeal has caused him, the suit states.
