Wow, here's a someone in line for a real Darwin Award.

It's a crazy world.

A MAN allegedly had his left testicle lopped off in a cheap Mid North Coast motel room because he couldn’t afford a proper medical procedure.

The alleged backyard surgeon, who is not a qualified doctor, Allan George Matthews, 56, has been charged after responding to the 52-year-old’s pleas for help online.

Police said alleged victim posted an online ad earlier this year “requesting assistance with a medical issue” that he had been suffering for years after he was kicked in the nether region by a horse.

It seems that the backyard surgeon is in a world of trouble.

He was charged with removing tissue from the body of another without authority, recklessly causing grievous bodily harm, possessing a restricted substance, not keeping a firearm (a pistol) safely and not keeping a firearm safely (not prohibited).

He was granted police bail to appear at Port Macquarie Local Court on July 13.

Police will allege Mr Matthews is not a qualified or registered doctor.

Shaking my head at this crazy world.

You should get in as close as possible if you can't avoid a kick. This man would have suffered if the hooves had connected. He was close enough to just get the legs.

This is why you never get random people online to do. Medical procedures.. And especially not in the nether region..

I've seen a pirate doctor work with a terminally ill patient. The patient improved dramatically and lived a fortnight longer than the hospice had expected. He had time to come to terms with some things, attempt to sort out others, and have a few laughs. Then he suddenly came to the point where his body obviously wasn't going to work much longer and the pirate doctor packed his bags and fled, leaving all kinds of chaos behind him.

I wouldn't say never to a pirate doctor, but possibly not in the delicate circumstances described.

So he literally gave his left nut.

Hospice are for people preparing to die. So why would you go get a Dr to prolong your life if you're prepped to die?

So, the crime is lack of "authority" as opposed to say, "competence".

I suppose it's entirely reasonable to bring a pistol to the guy who wants you to chop his testicle off's house.

It was his decision. The hospice had said they expected him to be dead by Thursday. This may support the allegations made by a whistleblower nurse who claims lethal overdoses are routinely given within the British medical system.

He wanted an extension to his life, and he got it. He used his 'extra' time to sort out some issues, though other issues could not be settled. To be brutally honest I saw him suffer the pain of knowing he could make no amends for his crimes. It was the second time I've watched a criminal die slowly full of regrets.

In the hospice the patient was given morphine and television. The pirate doctor administered ketamine instead of morphine. When the changeover was made the patient immediately became more alert and thoughtful and began trying to tie up various loose ends in his life.

Once his life extension was nearly over he opted to return to the hospice and died shortly afterwards. It must have been an eyeopener for some of the staff who couldn't miss the fact that the man who was supposed to die on Thursday lived considerably longer and became more mentally active after leaving their expert care.

While back in the hospice he had one more visit from the mother of an old friend, then peacefully passed away.

To answer your question, he just wasn't happy with a scheduled death, smashed on morphine, in front of a television.
