David from Norwich suffered a 2-year history of groin pain, a testicular lump developed in late 2010. By 2012 a left epididymectomy and right vasectomy was proposed. On the day of surgery, whilst waiting to be taken into theatre, David consented to a different operation, this being a bilateral vasectomy. As a result of the bilateral vasectomy, David developed severe debilitating pain in his groin and scrotum. In an attempt to resolve some pain, David subsequently underwent a left epididymectomy (removal of the epididymis; the cordlike structure around the base of the testis where the sperm are stored) and left orchidectomy (removal of left testicle). David also required a spinal neurostimulator to be implanted in 2014; the purpose of the implant is to provide pain relief by modifying the pain messages before they reach the brain. Unfortunately, despite all attempts, David’s pain continued and David was forced to leave his employment.

David instructed Pryers Solicitors to investigate a potential Clinical Negligence Claim against the Hospital Trust. Pryers Solicitors obtained evidence from an Expert in Urology, Expert in Pain Management, Expert Neurosurgeon and Psychiatric Expert. The experts were of the opinion the bilateral vasectomy was only ever going to worsen David’s painful symptoms, as it would obstruct the outflow from epididymectomy.

It was put to the Defendant Trust that the bilateral vasectomy in 2012 was negligent, as a result, David required unnecessary further surgical procedures being left with significant scrotal pain. The Defendant Trust denied breach of duty profusely.

However, settlement negotiations proceeded, which took some time to finalise, but eventually, David was happy to accept settlement for the sum of £750,000.00.
