Man who felt a ‘crack’ during sex ends up with ‘eggplant deformity’ of his penis 0 38

A MAN who felt a “crack” during sex ended up with what doctors called an “eggplant deformity” of his penis.

The unnamed 50-year-old suffered an extremely rare and painful penile fracture.

“The patient was having intercourse with his wife when he felt a ‘crack’ feeling,” the paper published in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports described.

Afterwards he lost his erection, had extreme discomfort, bleeding from his urethra and an inability to pee. 

The man went to the hospital where he lives, in East Java, Indonesia, complaining of swelling over four hours.

During physical examination, doctors found the “eggplant (aubergine) deformity” – a clear sign the penis is fractured.

The penis deviated to the right giving it a curved shape, and images show grotesque swelling.

There was also significant bleeding in the tissues of the penis, giving it a purple-red bruised colour all over, much like the fruit.

It made it difficult for medics to ascertain exactly where the breakage was, given the bruising had migrated all the way to the scrotum.  

Scans showed ruptures in the erectile tissue on the right side of the man’s penis, connective tissue deep in the penis, and the urethra.

The poor man was taken almost immediately to surgery, which the doctors described in detail in their case report.

The broken erectile chamber was fixed with absorbable materials and stitches, and the two ends of the urethra were tied together again.

To prevent blood from clotting in the scrotum, multiple incisions were made and a drainage tube was inserted. 

Five days after surgery, the man was discharged with a catheter that was supposed to keep for 21 days while his urethra healed.

Doctors said: “The patient returned for outpatient visits on the seventh postoperative day. The surgical wound appeared to be in good shape.

“The patient was seen again on the 21st postoperative day, and the urethral catheter was withdrawn.

“The outcome was considered satisfactory.”

Four months after the incident, the patient was described as “delighted with the outcome”.

He can once again have sex with his wife without experiencing any discomfort, as well as pee.

Although his penis bent a little to the left when erect, it caused him no pain. It’s not abnormal for a penis to curve slightly, as long as it doesn’t cause problems.

Penile fractre, the experts said, mostly occurs during vigorous sex.

The penis comes out the vagina before being thrusted too forcefully into the pubic bone or perineum between the vagina and anus).

A small number of men have snapped their penis during masturbation or by falling out of bed with an erection.

The key three features are hearing a “snapping sound”, swelling and bruising (hematoma).

A doctor previously warned the sex position most likely to cause a penile fracture is reverse cowgirl because couples can be out of sync.

Dr Karan Rangarjan, an NHS doctor and TikTok star, said patients who men who don’t seek treatment are usually left with erectile dysfunction, scarring and a permanent curve for the rest of their lives.

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.

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.

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.
