Cancer patient Andrew Lane, 61, contracted the potentially fatal infection necrotising fasciitis following surgery to remove his prostate gland at Southend Hospital in Essex.He was left fighting for his life and, although he survived, his genitals were so badly damaged that he lost most of his penis and is no longer able to have sex with wife of 14 years Sue.
So much diseased tissue had to be removed that it also left him with a protruding stomach, where the outer tissue had been “eaten” away.
He told The Sun:
“As a man you never know how much you will miss your penis until it’s gone. “I went into hospital a cancer patient for what doctors said would be a routine operation and came out without my manhood.”
He said that all he and Sue, 59, can now do in the bedroom is “remember the good time
“I do miss having s*x with my wife,”I’ve told her she can look for it elsewhere.”
