Hi, my brother in law (14 years old) accidentally shot
Patient :Hi, my brother in law (14 years old) accidentally shot himself in the penis three weeks ago. He had emergency surgery within 24 hours and remains in a stable condition in hospital. His entire penis has now turned black. Is it likely that it will need to be amputated? The doctor just keeps saying wait and see but it has now been like this for three weeks and I'm concerned about infection.
