The chopped limb was lying in the open for 16 hours
Doctors told that his amputated limb was lying in the open for about 16 hours. In such a situation, the chances of him getting infected were very high. If the doctor forcibly attached that organ, then the rest of the victim’s organs could be infected. In such a situation, if there was permanent damage to his urethra, then a urostomy bag may have to be applied. The loss of blood or sepsis could have resulted in the death of the patient.

Saved patient’s life by stopping bleeding
The doctors did not say how much blood had come out of the patient’s body nor how he stopped the bleeding. Surgeons from Egerton University in Najoro wrote in Urology Case Reports that the patient had not been taking his medication for a long time. The doctors took him to the operation theatre. There they cleaned his organ to prevent infection and stopped bleeding.

Falcicide is the name given in the medical language
The journal reported that such injuries are rare. Patients who commit such acts are usually psychotic, hallucinatory or drug addicts. In cases where a man attempts to cut off his penis with the intention of committing suicide, this is known as falsecide. Doctors are able to reintegrate only those sexes that survive to become infected.
