Man Wakes Up From Colonoscopy to Discover He's Wearing Pink Panties
"A Dover man who underwent a colonoscopy awoke after the procedure to find he was wearing pink women`s underwear, according to a lawsuit.
Plaintiff Andrew Walls, 32, was not pleased, or amused, and this month filed a civil suit in New Castle County Superior Court against the Delaware Surgery Center in Dover seeking damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress."
I underwent a colonoscopy earlier this year, and I was extremely relieved when the physician informed me I didn`t have cancer. In fact, I was so relieved by the good news, that I wouldn`t have been upset had I woke up from the procedure wearing pink panties and Pharrell`s huge hat.
However, there is no place for practical jokes in a surgery center, and I hope Walls is awarded enough money to purchase a Victoria`s Secret boutique.
When you are under anesthesia you are vulnerable and at the mercy of the physicians and nurses, whoever is responsible for this prank grievously violated the implicit trust between a patient and his caregivers.
To add insult to injury Walls was an employee of the Delaware Surgery Center at the time of his colonoscopy.
The Delaware Surgery Center has declined to comment, citing pending litigation.
