Default "Ow! My b*lls!"

He underwent surgery to remove his right testicle. When he woke up, his left one was missing.

In 2013, Steven Hanes visited his urologist, complaining of persistent pain in his right testicle.

An ultrasound revealed that the testicle had atrophied, with scarring and damage from a previous injury, according to court documents. And so the doctor scheduled an orchiectomy — or surgical removal of the testicle — to help alleviate Hanes's pain.

The good news? The orchiectomy was successful.

The bad news? The doctor removed the wrong testicle during the surgery.

Not for only $870,000, he won't.

OTOH, he may have a lucrative career as a male soprano...
