Poor guy. A 22-year-old Irish guy was in a bicycle accident, and his crotchal region hit the handles hard enough to give him "high-flow" priapism "with rigid erection". It took him FIVE WEEKS to seek medical attention. And then it took the doctors two more weeks to figure out how to fix it.
Medics eventually treated the man after inserting 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 reduced the high-flow blood supply to the penis, ending the erection.
Thanks, Irish Examiner, for the details.
He's expected to make a full recovery, and I predict he won't be riding any bicycles anytime soon.
What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
