A 29-year-old man in northeast China’s Shenyang city was mistaken for a hemorrhoid patient when he was waiting outside of the surgery room where his wife was having cesarean section on August 8. He ended up having a hemorrhoid surgery himself.

“I was called into the surgery room by a doctor. I thought the cesarean section was almost done and I could see my baby or help with something, ” the man surnamed Wang recalled.

“The doctor murmured something that I didn’t catch, then I was asked to take my pants off. I was quite confused but thought it might be something I just didn’t know. So I took my pants off,” said Wang, who is hospitalized after the hemorrhoid surgery.

“I heard the baby crying when I was lying there, and I wanted to see it, but my butt hurt so much that I couldn’t move,” Wang said he didn’t realize a hemorrhoid surgery was conducted on him until it was done and the doctor called his mother-in-law to inform her about the news.

Wang demands an explanation from the hospital for he is obviously mistaken for someone else and none of the doctors or nurses bothered to check up if they were having the right patient. The hospital side said Wang de facto had hemorrhoids and it was removed in the surgery. They also offered 5000 RMB as compensation. The two sides haven’t reached a consensus yet.
