You ever notice that you have two balls? What's up with that?
or toss them over my shoulder, like a regimental soldier.
Two balls. You almost had me for a minute.
your third one and open it up it contains a cash prize.
Beat off the banker?
you get the option to swap it for a mystery genital.
genuinely convinced another guy (age 16, with no mental disabilities or anything) that when you got to about 18 years old, you grew a third ball.
The moment he realised we were bullshitting him was amazing.
I am perfectly smooth, like an action man or "GI Joe".
I actually know a guy with three balls.
His name is Ian (i think) but everyone just calls him Eebee-(extra bollock)
can you swap them around?
no, they are held on my a bit of insidey stringy bit.
Which is lucky for those with a full (cock AND balls) circumcision
Too much information?
My worst thread-killing ever?
Isn't there some theory that the root of Hitler's problems came from him losing a testicle when attacked by a goat or summat?
I'm pretty sure losing a testicle doesn't turn you into a Megalomaniac. Hope not anyway...
I'm curious, but unsure of how to proceed
Got a (non Sexually transmitted) infection at University. Went to doctors, got sent to hospital. Spent 5 days in hospital on antibiotics whilst my entire groin swelled up like a football. Spent ages trying to convince nurses and junior doctors that I was getting worse but they were adamant medication was working.
5th day I finally saw a Consultant in the morning. Within 2 hours I was in x-ray, later that day was in theatre. They did what they could and stopped the infection but it was too late to save the testicle.
Not the best month of my life really.
jesus! that's fucking rubbish.
I'm all for incarcerating without food those who clutter the courts with pointless lawsuits, but did you raise any kind of hell over it? Sounds like you would have been justified if they didn't take it as seriously as they ought.
Did you sue?
won't bring 'little paul' back.
if there's actually some sort of financial loss incurred. Otherwise you're just asking for money for something money can't possibly compensate anyway.
I confess if that happened to me I'd be very tempted to try and get a few compensatory quid just for the hell of it
I mean it was too late to fix anything and the only reasonable compensation to demand would be free healthcare in the future and the NHS does that anyway.
Young doctors have to learn somehow and it's just unfortunate that I was admitted too late on a Friday for the Consulant's ward round and then it was junior docs all weekend.
I'm sure from the speed of the Consultant's reaction he'll have pointed out the mistakes that were made and there's not a lot else to ask for really.
a replacement ball?
made of solid gold?
in the end I decided not to go through with it. I might do in the future.
does it make you feel slightly unbalanced?
It's an odd sensation at times. It's been 6 years and I'm used to it now but it does feel strange having something on one side but not the other.
It definitely looks totally unbalanced!
Potential reduction in sperm count - what if you want to have a family one day, does that matter?
How about plain old negligence?
How many other people have suffered at the hands of those incompetent medical staff?
and I was 19 and maybe just didn't think about these things.
But I wasn't really psychologically damaged by it. I've had various strange medical problems over the years and this was far from the strangest.
There were tests to see if it had reduced my sperm count. It turned out my sperm count's pretty much fucked anyway (even before it had happened judging by the tests they'd done) so the whole "what if I want to have a family?" question turned out to be a moot point.
I guess I agree with you that I should probably have made more of a complaint but I don't really feel comfortable with suing the NHS - it just takes money away from medical care.
I also think it's a delicate balance. On the one hand there should be a crackdown and measures taken to ensure mistake's don't happen again but on the other hand you din't want to get into a situation where medics are scared to act due to the consequences of their mistakes.
That said the hospital I was in did a pretty lousy job. They fucked up the aftercare too by sending me home with all this packing in the wound that should have been removed beforehand. That caused a second infection and hospital stay 10 days later...
that having an ingrowing hair in your arsehold would do that to you
About this guy who actually lost a ball when it shot up into his stomach or something. I couldn't finish my maltesers after that.
of the guy who dislocated his hip in a rugby game, and the medics came onto the field to pop it into place and got one of his balls 'caught' as it popped in. Apparently he screamed so loud he ruptured his vocal cords.
I believe it must have been created by protective mothers to scare their precious children out of playing rugby
Speak for yourself.
