Mr Sanchez had performed the act on many of his animals in the past and believed the procedure would be as easy for him saying: “I’ve castrated pigs, cats, dogs and three days later they are healed.
“I thought that’s what it was going to be like with me. I had practice with animals, so I went ahead, put some pressure on it, and cut them to remove them by force!”
“When I saw that I could no longer count on her (his wife), so that I would’t keep bothering her, I made the decision to cut my testicles off because I am a Christian and did not want to go look for another (partner).”
The man is being treated at Santander Hospital where Dr. Javier Martinez said he is still healing: “He still has an escroto-penial hematoma. He’s been looked at by the urology department, and they found a complete absence of the testicles.”
According to doctors, Sanchez’s wounds have become infected.
