While discussing how a woman reportedly "removed" her ex-boyfriend's testicle with her teeth, plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon reveals how he suffered an injury to this sensitive area of the body and how he recovered.
"I have had this injury, not from a human bite, but a boating accident," Dr. Ordon says, explaining that while on a boat he caught himself on a boat cleat, which is the metal item often placed on the side of a boat and is used to wrap ropes around it.
"I looked down and there was a lot of blood... it was quite a scene," he recalls. He says his physician's assistant was with him at the time and he was able to be stitched up and says he did not suffer any serious damage to the area, minus a scar. Dr. Ordon shares that he was able to heal "very well."
The Doctors say these incidents highlight the importance of making sure you get an injury like this checked out by a medical professional, as it is possible for the testicle to become detached from the spermatic cord in an injury like this. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says if this occurs it could be a traumatic injury and possibly result in permanent damage if not treated properly.
