The 52-year-old man from India developed gangrene on the tip of his penis – meaning doctors had no option but to operate.
A man in India had to have his penis partially amputated after he developed gangrene from an erection that lasted two days.
The unnamed 52-year-old presented himself to doctors because he couldn’t get rid of the ‘painful and sustained’ erection.
Bungling medics swiftly drained the blood from his penis, but left a catheter in and tightly dressed his penis, causing the patient to develop black gangrene.
They were left with little option but to amputate after he reported back to them showing signs of severe tissue damage caused by an acute loss of blood circulation.
