Just a quickie, please...

I am so tired from work today but I had to jot this down:

Had a guy come in to be seen today in the ER for priaprism. If you don't know what that is take a few moments to look up the definition. Okay, this guy had taken and herbal supplement from 7-11 and had an erection for over 24 hours! Ouch!! And its very dangerous because the swelling for that long can cause damage to the nerves as well as the circulation. His penis was massively engorged and purple. The doc had to draing the excess blood using a fairly large bore needle. The lesson? Buyer beware.

Goodnight!

That was supposed to say "tagged". Oops.

I could have gone my whole life without being familiar with this word or condition. But thanks to all those ED commercials, I know immediately what you mean.

I saw a comedian do a bit on priapism. He said, if I have an erection for more than four hours, I'm not calling my doctor...I'm calling every woman I know.

Still, ouch is right.
