A Man is Suing His Doctor After Penile Enhancement Surgery Left Him Engorged for Eight Months
In 2009, a 44-year-old truck driver named Daniel Metzgar from Newark, Delaware went to Dr. Thomas J. Desperito for PENILE ENHANCEMENT SURGERY. It's safe to say things didn't work out like Daniel was planning.
Something was WRONG with the penile implant, and Daniel was left PERMANENTLY ENGORGED for eight straight months. He says it made it impossible for him to ride his motorcycle, or even do basic things like get the paper in the morning.
But for some reason, he never went back to the doctor even after his scrotal region swelled up to the size of a VOLLEYBALL.
Then, the implant BROKE and the tubing from it PIERCED his volleyball-sized man bag.
So he had MORE surgery, and needed prosthetics to fix all the damage. That left him FIFTY PERCENT SMALLER down there than before he started.
Now he's suing Desperito for an undisclosed amount. Desperito's attorneys say that sometimes bad surgical results aren't the doctor's fault and Daniel should've known something was wrong when his scrotum swelled up.
