Injured Mountain Biker Endures Seven-Week Erection
Cbs atlanta ^ | 1/15/2014 | CBS local

Posted on 01/15/2014 8:01:40 AM PST by fungoking

LONDON (CBS Atlanta) – A cyclist needed medical intervention at an Irish hospital because an injury he suffered caused his penis to remain erect for nearly two months.

The unnamed bicyclist sustained an injury on the crossbar of his mountain bike that interfered with the blood flow to his penis.

A medical report quoted in the Irish Examiner said the biker’s pain and bruising settled within days, but that he sustained ongoing “high-flow” priapism “with rigid erection”.

After suffering in silence for five weeks, he finally sought medical attention.

A hospital report said the initial examination “revealed no signs of injury, but penis was erect”.

Doctors first tried “manual compression” which would work for a short time, but then the penis would become erect again.

Then they applied a pressure dressing that was in place for two weeks. But once the pressure was removed there was an immediate return of the erection.

Finally doctors inserted gel foam and four tiny platinum coils at an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein that supplied blood to the man’s penis.

This successfully reduced the blood supply to the penis, ending the erection.

One of the medical technicians said, “We were very happy with the outcome.”

The CDC notes that bicycle parts manufacturers are developing saddles that ease pressure on the genitals.

Not to throw cold water on it, but the last sentence about the CDC is the result of prostate problems, including cancer, caused by long term rigorous biking.

if he’s Irish, he probably doesn’t have a wife, but lives with his mom.

probably has a girlfriend, who is probably married, though.

i love how he endured this for five weeks silently. when it comes to things sexual, the Irish still haven’t changed since the olden days...
