And, he said, as it was useless he decided to cut it off.
Oliver Ilic, 22, had called medics after he could not stop the bleeding.
And the jilted lover was taken on a stretcher in bloodstained jeans to hospital in the eastern town of Kocani.
Police searched his house and discovered the severed organ in a bin after it had been cut off with a single swipe from a razor blade
The bloody penis was delivered to the local hospital but a surgeon skilled enough to carry out the reattachment couldn’t be found.
Ilic was then transferred to the hospital in the capital Skopje, where surgeons managed to reattach the penis in a complicated five-hour surgery.
They said it was still too early to know if the operation would be a success and whether the man’s organ would ever function properly again.
Another 40-year-old man did the same a short while ago but in his case the member was not reattached because he had thrown it into the toilet and flushed it away.
