Drugs such as Viagra and Cialis warn users to seek medical care if an erection lasts more than four hours. But what about seventeen hours?
In England, 23-year-old Jason Garnett went to a hospital where his penis had to be drained
of two pints of blood after suffering from an erection lasting 17
hours. His condition, known as priapism, is regarded as a medical emergency.
Jason first woke up with a woody and initially didn’t worry about it.
However, by lunchtime he was beginning to get concerned and tried to
address the situation by taking an ice bath and then going for a jog.
Unsuccessful, he went to the hospital where doctors
drew off blood to reduce the pressure. They also
injected medication 24 times to restrict blood flow.
The treatment was painful but Jason says his dick “is completely normal now, apart from the fact that it
looks like it’s been through a war. It’s all a bit black and blue.”
