A man fears he will never father a child after bungling surgeons removed the wrong testicle in a cancer op.

 

His healthy testicle was removed by mistake – then sewn back on after doctors realised their mistake 40 minutes later.

The victim, now suing for compensation, said: “They definitely took out the wrong testicle. It should have been the cancerous one.

"It seems I can no longer father children. I have gone through incredible stress and strain.”

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: “We can confirm this incident took place.

"The trust offers its sincere ­apologies. Remedial surgery took place at the time.

“The trust carried out a thorough investigation and immediately made changes to its processes.”

One of the things you learn from years of dealing with whiskey people, is that you can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on whiskey. Especially when it's waving a razor-sharp hunting knife in your eye.
