Man says he could have died after an operation on his penis left him bleeding heavily.
A TERRITORIAN says he could have died after an operation on his penis left him bleeding heavily.
Michael Eglington, 53, said he collapsed from blood loss as he rushed back to Royal Darwin Hospital less than an hour after being discharged.
"Why did they let me go?" he said. "I could have passed out while I was driving."
The internal bleeding caused his penis and testicles to turn black - and his testicles swelled to more than three times their normal size.
The Northern Territory News has seen photographs to prove it.
Mr Eglington, of Stuart Park, went to Royal Darwin last Tuesday to have a wart removed from the base of his penis.
He was treated under local anaesthetic but said he was sent home straight away.
"As soon as the doctor finished cutting and stitching me up he said, 'that's it, put your clothes on'," Mr Eglington said.
He checked out with the outpatients' desk and went to visit a friend at Karama.
"Next thing I started feeling a bit warm about the groin," he said.
He said he looked down to see that he was sitting in "an inch of blood" in the chair. He used a nappy to soak up the blood as he drove back to hospital where he collapsed against the emergency counter.
"My shorts, my shirt, everything was covered in blood," he said.
Mr Eglington was then put under general anaesthetic for the wound to be repaired and kept in hospital for two days. He said he should have been kept in for observation for a few hours after the first operation.
Mr Eglington said he was in a lot of pain and would be unable to work in his trade as a steel fixer for several weeks.
Royal Darwin spokeswoman Michelle Foster said the hospital would not comment until an investigation into the incident was complete.

Note to self: If you have a wart on your cock, don't advertise it to the fucking world--
