Surgeons cut 16 washers from penis
I can not even begin to imagine how they got there.
A MAN was operated on in Hornsby Hospital with fire brigade equipment early today to remove 16 stainless steel washers from his penis.
Berowra Fire Rescue officers were called to alleviate the man from his awkward predicament at 3am.It was not clear how the situation arose.
Surgeons took about 90 minutes to remove the washers using fire brigade equipment.A
hospital spokesman said equipment normally used to remove rings from
fingers was ineffective because of the thicker nature of the washers. The man was in a satisfactory condition. It is believed the only lasting damage may be to his pride.
