A man suing after a major medical mistake left him disfigured gave testimony Thursday that revealed the intimate details of his misery.
Late Thursday afternoon, the patient testified at the Miami-Dade County Courthouse from his new home in Lima, Peru via Skype. He said he wanted a penile implant to improve his sex life in 2007. He stated that he was having problems with intimate relations between he and his wife for quite some time prior to the surgery.
A Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyer argues that an anesthesiologist overlooked his client's pre-existing medical conditions, which resulted in him having no more external male genitalia. According to the lawyer, the patient should have never been allowed to undergo elective penile implant surgery to treat erectile dysfunction back in August 2007.
The anesthesiologist involved in the surgery should have never allowed the surgery, the attorney said, because the patient had an extreme case of diabetes and high blood pressure, and his blood sugar levels were way too high on the day of his surgery. He had not seen a doctor in 15 years until that point.
The patient's problems began after a Gangrene infection spread through his genitals about nine days after the surgery. The infection turned into a flesh-eating bacteria that consumed his genitals centimeter by centimeter.
