Canadian sues hospital for shortening penis in botched surgery


OTTAWA–A Canadian man is suing a Montreal area hospital over a botched surgery that left his penis one inch shorter, claiming it ruined his sex life and his marriage, media said Friday.

The man, whose identity was withheld by Sun Media, told the newspaper chain he had been rushed to hospital in 2011 with a fractured appendage. The injury was sustained while having sex with his wife.

Surgery to correct the injury reportedly left a “permanent scar” on his penis and reduced its length by “about an inch” (2.5 centimeters).

The man claims he was unable to have sex for two years and his wife eventually walked out on him.

He is seeking Can$155,000 ($142,680) in damages for negligence and “indescribable anguish,” according to a statement of claim cited by Sun Media.

The allegations have not been proven in court.

    • What, Me worry?

      • pirata ako

        apparently the doctors thought it was just a “small” problem.

      • What, Me worry?

        Still, the allegation have not been proven in court due to “lack” of evidence.Though I’m confident he will be able pull “something” out on the “stand.”

        The doctor could be gay who ate one inch of the victim’s penis.

  • What, Me worry?

    Now ladies, you know how expensive a penis is. So please handle it with care.

    I’m sure he will be perfectly happy in Korea.

    • Jared PenoIio

      Why? Do Koreans have small diicks ?

  • speedstream2

    The guy’s allegations are kind of a stretch. Proving it in court will be, well, quite hard. In short, the case is a long shot.

    • Jared PenoIio

      He can pull down his pants in court and show the Judge. That’s enough evidence to convince the judge.

    Ipadala na lang sa ospital na ito ang mga tiwali politiko ng pinas para kapag nabawasan ng 1 inch ang bato nila ay balat na lang matitira!

  • Jared PenoIio

    Kung sa akin nangyari ay okay lang. Ano ba naman kung mabawasan ng one inch ang 8 inches kong penis. Hindi pa tigas iyan.
