from ECNS Wire:
A man was mistaken as a patient and received surgery to remove hemorrhoids at a hospital while he was waiting for his wife to give birth … The man surnamed Wang said he waited anxiously for about 40 minutes outside the surgery room before a doctor beckoned him in and ordered him to take off his pants.
The doctor said briefly, “just do what you are told” when the 29-year-old man asked for a reason. Wang said he feared to be laughed at if he asked further so he lied down on the bed.
During his surgery, Wang said he heard the cries of his newborn baby, then felt a pain in his bottom after leaving the bed.
Wang called his experience “unbelievable” and demanded an explanation from the hospital.
The hospital later said it was a mistake and promised to pay 5,000 yuan ($750) in compensation, adding that Wang really did have hemorrhoids.
