Some Surgeon Cut A Patient’s Nut Off And Came Up With A Bold-Faced Lie To Try And Cover Up The Mistake
My girlfriend’s a soon-to-be doctor, so I really hope nothing like this ever happens when she’s in the ER and operating on someone—because my junk hurts just thinking about the damage.
According to DailyMail, a surgeon by the name of Dr. Marwan Farouk is in serious shit after he accidentally snipped off a patient’s testicle during a surgery back in 2014, then coming up with a terrible lie by saying that the nut had shrunk and was still usable.
Here are further details about the botched operation that Dr. Farouk performed, per Express:
According to charges before the panel, he was also supposed to carry out an “excision of a right epididymal cyst” on the man’s right testicle, but removed it completely, it is alleged.
Details of the charges Dr Farouk faces state: “It is alleged that he removed Patient A’s entire right testicle, did not attempt to remove Patient A’s right epididymal cyst separately, and intended to cover up the fact that he had removed Patient A’s testicle.”
The charges continue: “It is further alleged that during a post-operative consultation with Patient A, Dr Farouk failed to inform Patient A that his testicle had been removed during the surgery and advised Patient A that ‘you have a small right testicle but it won’t give you any problems’, or words to that effect.”
So not only did this ball-cutting doctor totally fuck up on what he was supposed to do, but then he tried telling the patient that his testicle was just small and that it was totally OK to live with—unknowing that the damn thing has been removed altogether!
If you had any fears about what really happens while gassed up and in surgery that involves doctors running on zero sleep and your body at their disposal, this probably doesn’t help put your mind at ease.
