Michael Nash has sued the Veterans Administration for $10 million, claiming that mistreatment caused him to have to have his penis partially amputated. Nash's attorney says that he went to a VA hospital in Kentucky for penile implant surgery. After the surgery, nurses kept ice packs on his groin for 19 hours to reduce swelling. That led to frost bite and gangrene on his penis, forcing doctors to remove part of it.
