Doctors doubtful of fixing sex organ back to alleged rapist Swamy Gangeshananda

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Swamy Gangeshananda, whose male organ was cut by a girl while she resisted his rape attempt on May 9, may have to live his life without his genitals. Doctors are doubtful about his condition as his organ is generating gangrene.

The doctors of the government medical college hospital had attached his penis to avoid blood loss when he was brought to the hospital. His organ was slashed with a blunt object in multiple areas, reported DC.

“This will mean that the penis has to be removed. In such a case, normal urination will be possible but the Swamy will have to do it in a sitting position,” a surgeon said.

“If it was a single cut using sharp instrument we could have shortened and levelled the penis and re-attached it. Through microscopic surgery, all the blood vessels and nerves could have been re-attached. A full erection would also have been possible,” he added.

The doctors had consulted the plastic surgery department who were not sure about the positive outcome.

The injured Swamy is under the observation of the urology department. “We hope the penis will show revascularisation. However, it is highly unlikely and there is severe swelling,” a doctor said.

The doctors have put a tube through the sewn penis shaft for urination. The penis has suffered 90 percent cut and was dangling. Hence, the rescuers did not have to bring it in an icebox like in similar cases of bobbitisation.

The police have not registered a case against the woman considering its as an act in self- defence to prevent rape attempt. The woman continues to be in the shelter home and the Swamy was yet to give any statements against her.
