This is what he gets for being circumcised at 61

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A Kentucky man who claims his penis was removed without his consent during what was supposed to be a circumcision has sued the doctor who performed the surgery.
Phillip Seaton, 61, and his wife are seeking unspecified compensation from Dr. John M. Patterson and the medical practice that performed the circumcision for "loss of service, love and affection." The Seatons also are seeking unspecified punitive damages from Patterson and the medical practice, Commonwealth Urology.
A woman who answered the phone at Commonwealth Urology would not take a message for the doctor Thursday. But the Seaton's attorney said the doctor's post-surgical notes show the doctor thought he detected cancer and removed the penis. Attorney Kevin George said a later test did detect cancer.
"It was not an emergency," George told The Associated Press on Thursday. "It didn't have to happen that way."
Seaton was having the procedure on Oct. 19, 2007, to better treat inflammation.
The lawsuit filed earlier this month in state court claims Patterson removed Seaton's penis without consulting either Phillip or Deborah Seaton, or giving them an opportunity to seek a second opinion.
The couple also sued the anesthesiologist, Dr. Oliver James of Shelbyville, claiming he used a general anesthesia even though Seaton asked that it not be administered.
A message left at Commonwealth Urology's corporate office in Lexington was not immediately returned Thursday. A message left for James also was not immediately returned.
The Seatons' suit is similar to one in which an Indianapolis man was awarded more than $2.3 million in damages after he claimed his penis and left testicle were removed without his consent during surgery for an infection in 1997.

le docteur a detecte le cancer pendant l'operation ou avant? cette affaire est tres louche. pourquoi la victime a attendu tout ce temps pour aller a la justice? pourquoi n'avait il pas appelle la police juste apres l'operation ,il me semble que la mutilation involontaire est un crime. a 61 ans il n'a pas peut etre plus besoin de son penis pour le sexe mais il en a toujours besoin pour se soulager. c'est quand meme triste de perdre son meilleur ami comme ca..
