Man may never be able to use his penis again after bizarre DIY impotence treatment goes wrong 0 103

A MAN may never be able to use his penis again after an attempt to cure impotence went very wrong.

The US patient and his partner had been trying to have sex, before using a bizarre method to keep him erect.

But their amorous attempts ended dramatically, when he ended up with expanding foam stuck inside his urethra – which became “anchored” in his penis.

His partner had tried to use the straw in a can of weatherproofing spray to tackle his impotence.

But she accidentally pressed the button on the top of the can, sending foam into the 45-year-old’s member.

The foam, usually used to insulate homes, then hardened inside his penis and bladder.

Medics who wrote about the dramatic case in Urology Case Reports said he had waited three weeks to get help.

It was only when he was finding it very painful to urinate he was forced to go to hospital, and by the time he arrived he was passing blood.

Doctors found multiple lumps of the hardened form – some as large as 11cms.

Medics tried to pull the foam out through the penis using special tools, but were unable to.

Instead they were forced to cut an opening between the scrotum and anus to get the final bits out.

But this operation means he now has to urinate from three tubes inserted into the new hole behind the scrotum.

The patient, who is currently homeless, will have more surgery to repair the urethra, but only after he has a psychiatric assessment.

A practise called “sounding” is said to be increasingly popular among men desperate to combat impotence.

It’s when they insert objects into the opening of the urethra to try and stay erect, but it has serious health risks.

Last year we told how a teenager trying to measure the length of his penis got a USB cable stuck after the experiment went wrong.

The 15-year-old from London had to have surgery to remove the knotted cable after it got stuck.

DRASTIC MEASURES

Despite the teen trying to remove it himself, both ends of the cable were left hanging out of his member.

His family were forced to take him to accident and emergency after he urinated blood.

Erectile dysfunction can be devastating for a man, with one in five guys saying they have experienced problems at one time or another.

The condition is sometimes referred to as impotence and is characterised by the inability to get or maintain an erection.

Psychological impotence refers to when a man can’t get it up because of thoughts or feelings that are holding him back.

When impotence is caused by underlying physical health problems it tends to be longer-lasting and treatment is needed.

There is no one single cure to beat ED, but rather a combination of lifestyle monitoring, medication and therapy.

Various treatments for erectile dysfunction are available – but they depend on the underlying reasons for the condition.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

Surely he can’t just show up when he likes?

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
