Just find a porn site & look at one of the male pictures for 7 weeks, that'll give you an idea of what it was like.

Sometimes

>involved penile angiography and selective arterial embolization, ... using a 5 French Omni flush catheter ... catheterisation of the cavernosal artery using a 2.7 French micro catheter.

I'm real glad I don't understand (and don't want to understand) certain things. But then again, maybe my imagination is running riot and it wasn't all that bad.

Re: Sometimes

It just means tiny tubes went in and were used to release radioactive dye (so x-rays could be taken of the blood vessels), and blocking selected vessels to reduce blood flow. The tubes were inserted through the guy's artery, not stuck up his willy.

So sounds pretty OK, considering.

Re: Sometimes

Yes, I was actually able to understand the description to enough of a degree to understand what happened. Apparently, when groin met crossbar, he broke open an artery down there and it couldn't heal right resulting in an unusual form of blood ballooning. As I understand it, the procedure involved was meant to locate the problematic artery and then fix the break.

"Radioactive dye" - That'll make it easy to see the wood at night...

So, he had a stiffie for five weeks before going to the docs?

It reminds me of an old joke:

A woman walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, "My husband's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken." The quack says, "Why don't you bring him in to see me?" "I would but I need the eggs."

Poor bugger

How embarrassing would that be at a party, for instance.

'Yes, I am happy to be here'

'Yes, it's a banana I'm keeping warm'

Etc

Sales of Mountain Bikes

And, in a related story, sales of mountain bikes have reached an all time high. Additionally, several major spam providers have jumped on the bandwagon, and are now offering discount mountain bikes.

Just to be boring ...

An erection lasting more that 4 hours is considered a medical emergency.

Fistulous?

"A fistulous communication between cavernosal artery and right corpus cavernosum was embolized...."

This line just sounds like a posh way of saying they punched it into submission. Thinking about it that might just work...unless you're into that sort of thing.

What I'm reading from this is that it took his missus 5 weeks to complain.

Actually

In this particular case, a High Flow Priapism, it was not really a health issue. I mean other than having to stand back 2 meters to pee. It was just annoying. If there was no blood flow, as in the typical situation like this, after 5 weeks either the thing would have fallen off or he would have died. He just got really tired of walking around with the one eyed wonder worm peeking out of the top of his trousers.

All I can say is that if this had happened to me, then the resultant lack of blood and low pressure elsewhere in my body would be a serious worry. ;-)

One of which occurred to an iFan while watching the keynote speech by Jobs for the original iPhone.

And yet, nothing will ever match the stapled scrotum story. Just go to Snopes and type in stapled scrotum and prepare for the absolutely most eye watering story you will ever repeat in a bar to one up anybody else's story.

French Catheter Scale

Divide the French scale value by 3 to obtain the diameter of the catheter in mm

"Via the right common femoral artery, pelvic arteriography using a 5 French Omni flush catheter was followed by super selective catheterisation of the cavernosal artery using a 2.7 French micro catheter (Terumo)."

5Fr=1.67mm

2.7Fr=0.9mm

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_catheter_scale

Doubt Paris would be familiar with the French Catheter Scale. French Letters, is something else.
