I agree that i would need more details and would need to see the consent forms. The article says the patient signed 2 consent forms. He should not have signed the forms if he was illiterate and did not understand what was stated in the consents.
Consent forms alone do not constitute informed consent. The details of the procedure must be explained to the patient in terms he can understand, and he needs to demonstrate understanding of the procedure being performed.

Since the patient is (almost) illiterate, those forms will probably have little standing in the court.

Some of these lesions can become obstructing causing urinary retention (which would make it an emergency)
I totally agree in the case of a medical emergency, especially if the patient is unable to be consented.

However, it doesn't sound like this was the case here. In any case, it seems like the urologist should have explained the possibility of an amputation with the patient before the procedure. Most of the consent forms at our hospital cover the worst case scenario, even if that's unlikely to happen.

It hurts me just to look at your avatar. I did a Urology rotation 3rd year and saw a few of those procedures. It hurt to watch the reaming.

The freedom to die of dick cancer is one of the subtleties of the interpretation of the Constitution that could not have been foreseen by its creators. The doctor must pay. Eye for an eye?

I think, correct me if I am wrong, even if you win that you are limited to $100,000 in Louisiana.

So is your penis worth $100 grand?

He can go to St.Lukes in Houston. They have a really good reconstructive dept and one of their services is penile reconstruction.

I mean seriously. Let the fricking dude wake up first and tell him what's up. Dude comes in to get circumcised looking forward to better sex and wakes up without a dick.


Circumcision would not be leading to better sex...

That doctor would have a little more to worry about than a lawsuit if he cut my dick off before checking with me 1st. Let's be real, at that point most men would consider their life over. No reason not to kill that bastard.


Winner, winner
