(London) He went in for a heart operation and came out 'gay' a Leeds area man claims. The patient, whose name was not released, entered Leeds General Infirmary for a heart-by-pass operation. During the surgery doctors had to take out part of a large vein in his leg to replace a section of blocked artery in his chest. To get to the vein, the surgeons made an incision in his leg, but failed to notice the tattoo the man had on the leg, according to the London tabloid The Daily Mirror. The tattoo said "I love women". As he came out of the anesthesia, the heart operation a success, he noticed the scar on his leg. When doctors had sewn it up, the inadvertently left out two letters on the tattoo. It now says "I love men". The paper reports the man almost had another coronary. He has consulted his lawyers and is planning to sue the hospital and the doctors involved in the operation. He says he's now too embarrassed to wear shorts in public. Leeds General Infirmary has admitted it made a mistake, and the British Medical Journal has issued a warning to doctors to be careful when sewing up tattooed skin.
