Leonard Rothschild

The literature contains many reports of psychoses directly precipitated by surgical operation and many neurotics date their symptoms from an operation. We no longer think of suffering victims snatched at by meretricious surgeons but realize now how the neurotic patient forces himself on the surgeon to gratify his unconscious needs. Individuals dominated by the repetition compulsion return again and again for more surgical castrations.
