On 3/21/2013, Jacob Trayce Lyman (then 1 1/2 yrs.), headed to Springfield to undergo, what should've been, a simple Hypospadia repair surgery. Not only did the procedure go wrong, the urologist tried to perform a second surgery to correct the problem, which left him worse than when he went in the first time. Their second opinion sent them directly to the head of Pediatric Urology at Boston Children's Hospital. The surgeons had to write letters to the insurance company, because they refused to cover the surgery in Boston. Trayce underwent the surgery on 11/7 in Boston. He found that the prior urologist failed to reconnect his blood vessels and nerve endings, leaving him with the majority of his penis being dead scar tissue with little to no blood flow or feeling. Trayce had to have three emergency surgeries since, due to the extensive scar tissue causing him to close up and be unable to urinate at all. The surgeon explained that he will require 3-4 more surgeries to get him to be to function properly. The constant travel back and forth to Boston, hotel stays, medical bills and prescriptions have hurt them financially. Jennie had to quit her job and Troy doesn't get paid when he takes time off to be in Boston or be home for post operative care. The family appreciates any donations to help them thru this difficult time. Thank you!
