TORONTO – A Montreal-area man is suing a Quebec hospital for what he claims was a botched surgery that left his penis an inch shorter and resulted in his wife leaving.
According to QMI Agency, the man filed the suit against Pierre-Le Gardeur Hospital and is seeking damages of $155,000.
“This has caused a greater impact on my life than when I lost the use of my legs,” the man, who declined to be identified, told QMI.
According to the news agency, the injury stems from a 2011 incident during intercourse with his wife.
The man was sent home with what a doctor called “minor trauma,” QMI reported.
The man was unable to have sex for several weeks and was later diagnosed with a fractured penis.
The man required surgery which left a “permanent scar” on his penis and he lost “about an inch” in length, the court documents allege.
None of the allegations have been proven in a court.
A penis fracture occurs when it is suddenly or forcefully bent while filled with blood. According to the Mayo Clinic, an untreated penis fracture “may result in deformity or the penis or the inability to have or maintain an erection.”
