Northern Territories, Australia - 53-year-old Michael Eglington says his penis and testicles turned black from internal bleeding last Tuesday as he left Royal Darwin Hospital. He went for an operation to have the base of his penis cleared of a wart.
"Why did they let me go? I could have passed out while I was driving," he said. He was back within an hour, but his testicles over tripled in size and lost so much blood he collapsed when he got back. He was treated again and released in short order.
"My shorts, my shirt, everything was covered in blood," said Eglington, who added that the seat of his car was filled with "an inch of blood" when he looked down after he "started feeling a bit warm about the groin."
