Considering that this medico not only cut it off, but also diced it, I would guess not.

Wow ... talk about needing an anger management course! I think the patient should be allowed to go after the surgeon with a knife!

Re: I told you medical tourism was risky...

Heyyy...theres an idea for a new thread..."How much money would you take to have your weener whacked off?"

I cant really pin down a number, but it'd have to have at least seven zeros after it.
