SURGEONS castrated a pensioner who went to hospital to have gallstones removed. Andreas Hoffman is suing medics, who cut off both his testicles, for £100,000.
The 68-year-old said: "The doctors got rid of some lumps. Only they were two that I had grown rather fond of and wanted to retain."
There were complications during his surgery and he was put in a coma for two months. He discovered his right testicle was gone when he awoke.
The hospital admitted that the right testicle was taken off because the first incision on the gallstone operation had cut through vital tissue.
They have not said why the second one was removed.
