A British man has been hospitalised with a two-week erection as doctors face a “race against time” to save his pen*s.
Danny Polaris, who is in agonising pain, and has lost a lot of blood, fears it may need to be amputated. The Swansea-born Jazz singer who lives in Berlin, took Vi*gra before he went to a party.
After he went home with a nurse, he agreed to have an erection enhancer injected into his pelvis.
“It’s one of the worst decisions of my life”, he said from his hospital bed, as he may never have a natural erection again.
The following morning, he noticed he still had an erection, but he decided against going to seek help, wearing his flatmate’s wine cooler wrapped around his pen*s.
Two days later, he was rushed to hospital in “screaming pain”, where he was diagnosed with priapism. It is a long-lasting painful erection that can cause permanent damage to the penis if not treated quickly.
Danny’s friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help cover his medical bills. They said he will need counselling or psychotherapy, alternative therapies and further operations in the future for reconstructive surgery.
Danny even fears his condition will affect his current open relationship with his boyfriend.
A description on his fundraising page says: “Danny has been suffering from potentially life-threatening priapism for more than 10 days. Some days he’s been in so much pain, that he has blacked out and fallen unconscious, even with strong pain relief.”
