A man has strained his penis as he attempted to wear his wedding ring on it.
According to reports in The South African Medical Journal, wife to the 28-year-old unnamed man has just had a baby, and his friends had advised him that in order to put his sexual urge under control, he should wear his wedding ring on his manhood.
The situation soon assumed a gory dimension, as he was taken to the hospital in an emergency.
“His penis was erect and blue and he was in severe pain,” the journal noted.
“The wedding ring got stuck and caused the patient’s penis to swell.
Doctors even tried using a small surgical saw to remove it, but it got too close to his manhood!
Deciding otherwise, they, instead, used an injection to drain blood from the penis, by making several punctures with a needle to decrease the swelling.
“This worked quite well, as the swelling went down, allowing them to pull off the wedding ring,” the journal reports.
The man stayed in the hospital for a few days to recuperate, after which he was discharged and given pain killers and antibiotics.
