Oh, brother. Enrique Milla -- who was having difficulty satisfying his wife -- decided to get penile implant surgery in 2007 at a clinic in Miami, but that decision left him a eunuch. He's now suing the anesthesiologist who cleared him for surgery, claiming the doctor should've known that Enrique, who's diabetic and hypertensive, was not fit for surgery. Furthermore, on the day of the operation, his blood sugar levels were elevated. Anywho, nine days after the operation, Enrique's lawyer told the court a Enrique developed a Gangrene infection which "turned into a flesh-eating bacteria that ate his penis centimeter by centimeter and as a result of this, he has to spend the rest of his life without a functioning penis. He has to sit down to urinate. He'll never have any intimate relationships with anyone, and he's lost his manhood." That's tough.
In other penis-related news: Scientists found that eating yogurt prevent age-related weight gain as you get older AND it makes your balls bigger. According the study conducted on mice by researchers at MIT, the testicles of male mice who were fed yogurt were about 5 percent heavier than those of mice fed typical diets alone and around 15 percent heavier than those of junk-eating males. Additionally, yogurt-eating males inseminated their partners faster and produced more offspring than control mice.
Staying on the penis subject. The parents of a baby boy has sued paediatrician Lissette Molina (and Feldman, Kenward, Schwartzbard M.D. LLC, the medical practice where she works) for a botched circumcision. Despite efforts to correct the problem, Steven and Keke Lorenzana say their son "has suffered bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, mental anguish, disability, disfigurement, and loss of the capacity for the enjoyment of life. The losses are permanent or continuing in nature and he will suffer in the future." They're suing for more than $15,000 in damages.
