Four days later he was suffering from necrosis – his penis was black and decaying – and had no choice but to go to hospital.
Dr Dennis Chirinos said the man will never have sex again as a result of the operation in Honduras.He said he had repositioned the patient’s urethra so that he can urinate. He also warned that necrosis starts within four hours.
Dr Chirinos told HSH Television Digital: ‘It’s a strange case, it’s happened before, bit it’s still strange. ‘We had a 50-year-old patient, that, because he didn’t have a girlfriend or a wife, wanted to relieve his sexual frustration. ‘So he put his penis in a bottle and this caused the death and necrosis of the penis. ‘When he arrived four days later we had to amputate the penis completely because it was completely dead.
‘When you put your penis into a bottle it causes a constriction in the blood vessels of the penis and within four hours you can lose the penis.
‘This is an embarrassing emergency. The situation with this patient it that he didn’t get the medical attention in time and this caused the penis to begin to decay and die completely. ‘There was no choice but to completely remove the penis.
‘It wasn’t just the case here that it had died, it had gone completely black and had begun to decay. The necrosis was very severe.’
Dr Chirinos has taken the opportunity to remind men to keep their penis, particularly behind the foreskin, clean in order to prevent infection or diseases that could develop into cancer. He added, according to La Prensa, that the penis should be cleaned three times a day and after sex to reduce the chances of problems arising.
