I felt bad enough having to neuter my dog, let along having the thought of loosing my penis. I would think this could change a man's entire perspective in life.

I believe more information needs to be given before giving a well thought out judgement. Like someone else said, how can you put a monetary number on this?

This isn't a thread about the drug issue or the politics of drugs so they might let us discuss.. don't see why not.

Heroin users have caught it from missing with tar heroin (they also get botulism from it) and a woman in Florida lost her ar using that bath salts stuff a few weeks ago.if anything mods should let this stuff fly.. I don't think the idea of necrotizing fasciitis (that's the flesh eating bacteria) isn't exactly gonna turn kids on to drugs.

When torturing a man, there is one thing you can threaten but never touch.
This is his frank and beans.
Why?
If you do, the man will not talk, you have taken away his primary tool for enjoyement of life.
If I were the man in question, I would not be looking for monetary reimbursement as there is no price for what this man has become.
Knowing "the fun" was over, I'd be looking to settle some scores.

Hearing about it more for sure. I knew a woman who lost parts of her arm in 97-98. I was hospitalized in 2010 for fear that I was infected in my leg. It ended up being Sepsis.

It was painful and I was scared I was going to loose my leg. IV's with Antibiotics for 4 days and I was walking out. I considered myself lucky since a lot of MRSA cases start with a trip to the hospital.

Moral of the story, when it's time to stop having sex, it's time to stop having sex. Obviously it was time to stop having sex.

I was gonna make a penis joke, but I lost it.

This one is not about the loss of a penis but it is another case of a man with a flesh eating disease, the fourth one.


MACON, Ga. -
A grandfather is hospitalized in Macon after contracting a life-threatening flesh-eating condition.



"Over the last three decades, only about 200 cases nationwide and then all of a sudden we've got four in the last month," said Mike Bales.

NOT GUILTY!

MIAMI (CN) - A jury on Tuesday found that an anesthesiologist who cleared a man for penile implant surgery was not responsible for flesh-eating bacteria consuming the man's penis.

Seems just.

Guess he can't use his court money to get a big one sewed on now. Darn.

I bet there will be an increase in this type of stuff. Hospitals need better anti-bacterials as more and more drug resistant bugs start showing up, so it's all a matter of trying to keep pace with the resistance. It looks like we are falling behind, and that can be seen by an increase in cases like these.

I'd like to be a part of a group developing the next big antiseptic/disinfectant for use in hospitals. Talk about making BANK.

"Sincerely, I came here in this country to seek freedom and to seek justice, and I have found both," the Romanian doctor said. He continued: "The attorney from the other side had to rewrite the rules that are there in the operating team. ... The other parties have settled down with the plaintiff and the only cow to milk was me because I was the only one that had insurance, under the circumstances, that can be taken for a ride and can be, you know, extorted some money out of it. Usually the insurance companies, they prefer to settle. And you know why? Because there is a three-year process. A process that damaged my family life, my personal life."


The guy was only out for money and someone putting you under isn't the one that should be the "gatekeeper" whether or not you have surgery. The anesthesiologist probably reviewed that guy's medical history on that day only, the urologist is the one to really look at and discuss all the factors. You'd probably be very hard pressed to find cases where an anesthesiologist said the surgery was a no go, unless it had to do with the medicines the anesthesiologist was giving during the surgery. If another MD was simply in the room watching he'd get included in the lawsuit as well, that's how these things go.

This thread caught my interest because I have a penis and don't want it to be eaten off by bacteria.

However,
60 year old getting a penile implant for erectile dysfunction? I really don't know where to go from that.

Possible malpractice so he may get some money.
No one should be having children at 60, so I would assume the amount to be less.
Plus the damn thing didn't work in the first place, so kelley blue book says....

This is one of those stories that could give a man some serious nightmares....
Give 1,000,000 dollars for every inch. I would get 1,000,000 dollars.

at his age im sure sex is going to be last thing i worry about, if it stops me from peeing straight i might worry, but, an operation to give me a hand pump to blow it up when my body is so out of shape i cannot manage it naturally, this planets inhabitants has many things out of priority, this is another.


Maybe he should have thought about the ramifications of attempting such a thing with such an irreplaceable thing, poor guy, seems foolish a little bit at his age.

Boeru's attorney Jay Chimpoulis told the judge and jury: "This is an infection that occurred in this gentleman because he didn't do what he was supposed to do post-operatively nine days after the surgery."


If true, I'd give the man nothing. Sounds like he learned the hard way to listen to your MD.

Would I suggest someone have a toothbrush mustache just because charlie chaplin did? No.
Just because someone has done it doesn't make it a good idea now.

Sounds like someone wanted to try it on for size.


But yeah, listen to your doctors.(most of the time.)

I have to say, if that happened to me...

I'd never go back to that hospital.

Actually, I was only kidding. I more familar with microbiology than the average person. But there are instances that surgeries should be delayed and some where elective surgery is not an option. Who can say other than another MD that examines his preop health records. Plus they can't really accuse the man of not following proper post op care instructions. First off, he was elderly, and they have to assume he may be more forgetful than say a 20 year old. Age appropriate care.... The Doc learned this in med school. And secondly with his health history, he requires more aggressive follow up than the average person. And an extra long hospital admission to insure proper healing. Plus how do they know he feels pain like he should? Diabetes causes peripheral neuropathy, so the elderly man just may have been missing a vital clue to a problem arising. Once again something else that should have been taken into account. Plus so much more that I think was already mentioned in this thread already. So was this malpractice? There are too many details missing to be certain. But I have a strong hunch....
