Man gets nut surgically removed
A man who tried to elongate his penis with a nut found himself in trouble when the nut got stuck after he had an erection.
The victim, from Taman Sri Skudai, had apparently been trying to increase the length of his penis ahead of his engagement next week when disaster struck.
The 20-something-year-old victim went to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital here to seek treatment when he was unable to get the nut off himself.
He was finally put out of his misery when doctors removed the nut by using a needle to suck out some of the blood and cut away skin on the upper layer of his organ to remove the nut.
This is the second case in the past week involving objects stuck on penises. On Aug 25, Doctors at the University Malaya Medical Center in Kuala Lumpur had to cut a steel ring from a patient’s penis.
Boy has shoulder made from his elbow
A teenage cancer patient has undergone successful surgery to rebuild his shoulder using his elbow.
Tom Lemm, 15, from Pontefract, had his left arm amputated by surgeons at Leeds General Hospital because of a tumor at the top of the limb.
Doctors used tissue and muscle from his unaffected elbow to create a new shoulder in what is believed to be the first UK operation of its kind.
Tom's surgeon said the shoulder would be able to support an artificial arm.
In the operation, the whole arm and the shoulder joint were removed.
The surgeons then used the elbow joint and tissue from the arm to reconstruct a shoulder joint.
