A crazy medical lawsuit story in Florida
We hear of many crazy lawsuit stories, don't we? Warning, this story is rated PG-13, so don't continue reading if you're easily offended by medical stories involving surgery of male body parts.
This story involves a 62-yr old man with diabetes who had a penile implant. The surgery didn't go well and he developed a serious infection. As a result, his implant and his male body part had to be removed. The man (and his wife) are suing the urologist. Here's the lesson for the day: don't practice medicine in Florida. I wonder if the endocrinologist and infectious disease specialist are also going to get named in this lawsuit. To read the story on CBS4.com, click here.
