[THE FOLLOWING IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT]

FRIDAY, November 29, 2013(HealthDay News)--A new study suggests that thousands of men seek care in U.S. emergency rooms each year for the painful condition known as priapism--an erection that lasts too long and threatens to permanently harm the penis.

The researchers estimated that it costs $124 Million a year on average to treat priapism at hospitals.

"We're not talking about a massive problem, but it's more common than we thought," said study author Dr. Daniel Stein, chief resident with the urology department at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

Stein said the researchers launched their study because there's little information about the number of cases of priapism, which has gotten more attention in recent years because of the warning related to impotence drugs.

Priapism refers to an abnormal erection in which the blood that engorges the penis fails to drain out, Stein said. Blood stagnates in the penis, and tissue begins to die because it's not getting fresh oxygen.

"The mood is gone, but the reaction is still there," he siad. "It's remarkably painful. All men coming in with priapism are unhappy about it."

Hah!

Most trapshooters are so old and/or fat ... Viagra or Cialis would only get it up far enough so that they don't pee on their shoes!

I'm not touching that one Kit. Figuratively or literally.


Kit, just don't reply to any of my threads anymore like you did here. I got a message from a moderator and they said for me to tell you that.
