Priapism.

If you had it, how long would you wait before seeking medical treatment? 5 weeks?!

I had that complication - from age 13 - now. What, 47 years? And just who would I call? My girlfriend?

Is she a doctor?

I note that the doctors' treatment was compression.

Compression for 2 weeks (before trying something else).

It must have been in the "firm, but supple" state or else cutting off the blood circulation that long would have permanently damaged it. That was one of the big warnings about abuse of Viagra by younger men when it first came out. It could cause a true Priaptic case (a hard hard) that had to be lanced (to get the blood out.

So he was packing rolls of sausage instead of a Salami club.

According to the ED drug commercials, a man is supposed to consult a doctor for an erection lasting longer than four hours. Of course, in this case it was a biking injury that caused the unwanted erection, rather than a pill.

You know that somewhere out there, there's a cheap old codger who's thinking, "Bonking my weiner on my bike crossbar is a lot less expensive than the blue pill... And longer lasting, too!"

Clyde That's very funny thanks for making my day. I'll share that with my senior friends.

Men don't seek treatment.

Just like any other sprain.
RICE

Rest
Ice
Compression
Elevation

maybe not so much ice.

Doctors then tried radiography, which helped remove the erection.

Radiography? Remove??

They used X-Rays to remove his stiffy...and to where might they have moved it??

Man: Inform hell, Jeeves, we're going to London.

"Radiography" makes no sense unless they mean some sort of angiogram.

Perhaps he wore a kilt so things wouldn't be so obvious?

I wouldn't wait 5 weeks to seek out medical attention, but if the doctor said I could have an erection for five weeks and there would be no medical complications or pain I would embrace it.
Also, I'd make sure to cancel any important business functions and/or family get togethers.

"Radiography" may be a misunderstanding for microwave thermal therapy, sometimes used to try to improve blood flow in healing bone fractures. Just a guess, of course.

Talk about getting your Irish up!

Thanks for the stupid picture of the hot dog dumb newspaper.

Writing as a man who has worn a kilt on many occasions I can state that in my case a least an erection under a kilt is very obvious.

A five week erection... the mind boggles. Boggles other parts, too. I have difficulty urinating through my erection. When I need to go my woodies spontaneously relax. I think this is normal. Nature shouldn't allow a man to urinate into his lover's vagina.

What you have to do is lift the shaft so its pointing towards your belly button and let the waist band support your johnson. If you have a baggy shirt you can often get away with walking around without anyone noticing.
