I realize that mine was done as part of a religious ritual when I was 8 days old, but I would think that if you’re chatting with the nurses and technicians while getting botox and you notice that they’re not giving you any injections in your face, but they are manipulating other tender portions of your anatomy, you might ask what exactly is going on!!!
Terry Brazier was given the procedure after medics at Leicester Royal Infirmary mixed up his notes.
Mr Brazier claims he was so distracted chatting to nurses he didn’t realise he was getting a different procedure until it was too late.
Speaking to the Daily Star he said: “I went in the surgery for some Botox and they ended up circumcising me.
“They didn’t know what to say when they found out they’d done it, they said they can’t send me back to the ward and they needed to talk to me.
“The nurse was at the side of me and we were talking so I didn’t know what was going on.
“It was a real surprise.”
Andrew Furlong, Medical Director at University Hospitals of Leicester, said: “We remain deeply and genuinely sorry that this mistake occurred, and I would like to take this opportunity to once again apologise to Mr Brazier.
“We take events like this very seriously and carried out a thorough investigation at the time to ensure that we learnt from this incident and do all we can to avoid it happening again.
“Whilst money can never undo what happened, we hope this payment provides some compensation.”
“When they found out they’d done it?”
What is that even supposed to mean? He got circumcised because the medical professionals working on him were undertaking sleep surgery? Because they went on break for a cuppa and a mohel just happened to walk by, had his bris kit with him, and decided to undertake an unscheduled bris?
I guess this could have been much, much worse given the area they actually wound up operating on, but really?
Remember to mark your body parts pre-op or risk an unhappy ending!
