Penile Story of the Week – One More Call for the Fire Department to Help in Surgery But New Treatments Are on the Horizon
Posted Jan 07 2010 9:57pm
When I keep saying we need more education in healthcare, well this latest story from a man in England somewhat confirms this once again. This was one more case where the fire department was called to the rescue as the man’s organ was stuck in a pipe and the patient offered no explanation as to why this occurred. It is amazing what restricted blood flow will do. No word on whether or not he was taking any ED drugs to cause any of this. I am glad women do not have this issue and are built different so I don’t have to be writing about the irrational placements of female organs.(grin). We’re smarter than that I believe.
A couple months ago in the OC where I live, we had this crazy story about the man who with the same problem with blood flow it sounds, had a weight stuck and the fire department had to scrub and go into surgery with the physicians. The full story can be read a the link with a preview below. That story was a real screamer as he waited 3 days to call for help, ouch.
Only in the OC….this is a very unusual story and embarrassing to say the least. Did he somehow read something that was misleading here on how to increase his size? This is one for the dumb and dumber files literally with dumbbells! The article said he waited 3 days before getting help. The procedure to remove the weight took 2 hours and the hospital kept the patient under psychiatric hold after the patient muttered “this will make me the chief of my tribe”. I guess we now have tribes in the OC too. The fire fighters had to dress in full surgical garments when removing the weight.
If you are male and have issues, there are solution in the works, first from Wake Forest they are using stem cells and have created one, transplanted to a rabbit and it worked and produced off spring, so just be patient and stop trying to solve the issue yourself and go see your doctor.
Well this process obviously is a success as it took only one minute for the males to begin the reproduction process after being introduced to female rabbits. In the past only scaffolding had been used and that portion alone was not a success. Earlier this year, Dr. Oz did a show going through the Wake Forest Center where all this is taking place.
If this news is not enough, recent clinical trials using a shock wave device too are showing favorable results, so in the near future, drugs may not be the only option. The trial from the shockwave treatment actually “cures” the arterial blood flow problem with many men and thus they no longer need Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, so this could stand to be some good news for many. I’m sure we will be seeing more of this trial and study in the news in days to come.
Anyway, back to the story at hand, the saga of the pipe below, we really do need education and training to help some folks along here and with some of the information on the 2 links above, it looks like progress is being made by either soon having one grown or via shock treatment, but please don’t rely on these home methods that end up in the news and on blogs like for everyone’s amusement.
Medics at Southampton General Hospital could not get the man's penis out of the stainless steel pipe because the restricted blood flow had caused it to become aroused.
So they called in Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service. The firefighters used the four-and-a-half-inch grinder to cut the pipe from around the man's penis and it took about 30 minutes.
The patient was given an anesthetic and his penis was left bruised and swollen but otherwise unharmed. The anxious man aged about 40 gave hospital staff no explanation about how the pipe got stuck after he turned up on Tuesday morning.
