A ballsy operation

A man desperate to become a woman took matters into his own hands by slicing off his own testicles.

The 22-year-old man from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, then lobbed them into a nearby park before -going to hospital – after 24 hours had already passed.

The man told doctors in Accident and Emergency that he had felt 'a lot less pain' than he had expected. Doctors stitched his wounds and offered him psychiatric help.

A spokesperson for the Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Trust said: 'A man in his early twenties presented himself at the hospital minus his testicles, which he had removed the previous day.

'He was treated, then discharged. We can say no more because of patient confidentiality - but this is pretty unusual’
