Man Hospitalized And Treated For 17-Hour Erection
A British man had to go to hospital after experiencing a 17-hour erection. According to the Sun, Jason Garnett, a hotel worker from the spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire, UK, said he woke up with an erection after having sex with a friend.
Nothing would have been unusual in that situation had the erection gone down after some time. However, his penis was in erection for more than 17 hours!
At first, Garnett wasn’t worried about the erection, so he went to work. Around lunch, he got pretty concerned. After taking an ice bath and going for a jog didn’t help in any way, Garnett realized something was seriously wrong. Eight hours after waking up, he opened up about his problem to his roommate.
“You should have seen the look on his face when I told him what was wrong. He was in hysterics at first, but then he realized how serious the situation was.”
Garnett was taken to a hospital and was diagnosed with priapism, a rare condition where erections simply won’t go down. It is not caused by sexual stimulation and if left untreated can damage the penis permanently.
Doctors had to drain 1.1 liters of blood from his penis and also injected his manhood 24 times with medication to fix the problem.
“Seeing them stab my penis with a needle was a horrible experience, like something out of a horror film. The pain was 10 out of 10.”
He added that everything is normal now, “apart from the fact that it looks like it’s been through a war.”
