Phillip Seaton, a 64 year old American has taken a doctor to court after his his entire penis was surgically removed without consent being obtained, during what should have been a routine circumcision.
Mr. Seaton woke up at the Jewish Hospital following the circumcision procedure in October 2007 to find not his foresking missing as he expected but his entire chopper chopped off.
Seaton, a lorry driver from Shelbyville, Kentucky, had been advise to have his foreskin removed to solve an inflammatatory condition. Surgeon, John Patterson, said a full knobectomy was necessary because the medical team discovered a rare and deadly form of penile cancer while performing the operation.
Lab tests later proved that Seaton had a type of cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma.
Mr Seatons lawyer, Kevin George, argued in court that as the situation was not an emergency as the cancer was not immediately life threatening the patient and his family should have been allowed to get a second opinion or at least given a chance to say goodbye. Mr. Seaton was never given the chance to descide if he would rather live in an emasculated state or die with his dick attached.
Attorney George told the court: My client’s anger is justified because Dr Patterson his truncated his todger without asking; without giving him a choice; without giving him the opportunity to check around and talk to other people and find out the phsychological effects of living without a willie.
In court, the amputee told jurors of the initial moment after being told his penis had been removed.
I pulled the dressing up, and I didn’t see nothing. Then I came out of the restroom and I said I’m getting the hell out of this damn hospital. As you would. In a drsssing gown. Without your dick.
Now Mr Seaton and his wife, Deborah, are seeking unspecified damages from John Patterson for loss of service, love and affection. Dr. Patterson told a Boggart Blog reporter, “What has the guy to complain about, that cancerous cock would have had to come off sooner or later. I think he’s being a bit of a prick about the whole business.”
