thanksPenile fractures included?
Honestly, Doc…great and informative post. Thanks.
penile fractures are just as bad as they sound like they would be - maybe worse. In humans there's no bone down there to be fractured, what happens is the structures that fill up with blood when one is "ready" can get lacerated - in other words torn open - when things get too wild and, I guess you'd say the AoA is wrong. Of course when this happens one is immediately "un-ready". It hurts immediately and just as bad as you'd imagine it would (or worse), and a trip to the ED and surgery almost always follows.
I don't do urology, but I did some in training and I helped fix a couple of these - you explore the injury, you sew everything back together & wait for it to heal. Sometimes things work right afterwards, sometimes not.
So be careful out there, cuz' this is definitely one problem to avoid if you can. If there is any consolation, it's neither in the MANMED or the NAMI waiver guide so I guess if one has one & gets it repaired, it's apparently not a DQ.
