A man had gallbladder surgery but underwent a vasectomy he

Jorge Basé, a 41-year-old man of Argentine nationality, had to undergo gallbladder surgery and accidentally underwent a vasectomy. The incident occurred due to a medical error at the Florencio Díaz State Hospital in Córdoba and doctors told him that the procedure was irreversible.

“I am angry and helpless because what they have done, they have already done and there is no turning back. There are endless questions that run through one's mind. “I don’t understand how such negligence and such big mistakes can happen,” he told Eldoce.tv.

The protagonist of this story stated that one of his greatest desires was taken away from him because he wanted to have a girl with his partner, even though he was the father of two boys. The only way to have another child is through artificial insemination.

He filed the complaint after accidentally having a vasectomy

If he wanted to undergo another operation and try to reverse it, as the doctor explained, there was no chance of success. “They told me it no longer made sense given my age and the size of the station,” he lamented.

Jorge Basé had to undergo another operation to solve his gallbladder problem and apparently there was an error in the order. “They told me that when they operated on me, they did not do the gallbladder operation in the operating room, but what they did on me was done on Wednesday,” he added.

“They all came to examine me and the doctor made me aware of the situation. It's very strange because in my file there was something written about my gallbladder. I just read it, it’s not very scientific,” he said.

What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a surgical procedure to sterilize men and is considered a permanent method of contraception. During the procedure, the vas deferens are severed and sealed. These are the tubes through which sperm travel from the testicles to the urethra.

By preventing sperm from mixing with the semen expelled during ejaculation, this procedure effectively prevents the man's ability to fertilize an egg. It is a short procedure that is usually carried out under local anesthesia and is characterized by its high effectiveness. Men who choose to have a vasectomy should consider it as a long-term contraceptive option.

Is it possible to reverse a vasectomy?

A vasectomy reversal, also called vasovasostomy, is technically possible in many cases, but does not guarantee restoration of fertility. In this procedure, the vas deferens that was severed during the vasectomy is reconnected to allow sperm to pass through again. The effectiveness of reversal depends on several factors, including the time since vasectomy, the surgical techniques used in both vasectomy and reversal, and the individual's reproductive health.
