    Remember the old clear plastic BIC pens, with the little plug in one end that was the same color as the ink? One of those in a guy's urethra. Just the clear plastic tube part.

    if he has to self-cath for his urethral stricture, medicare will give him 4-6 sterile no-touch lubed caths per day.

    if he wants something to, umm, click his bic, i'd recommend him to a good urosurgeon for a consult re implants or other cleaner solutions than stationery supplies.

    although i must say that one of the saddest cases i ever saw was a guy who had some bp probs or something post op and came to the icu after his penile implant, and got a terrible mrsa infection (back when they were very uncommon) and we had him for five months and he died. never even got a chance to try it out. and his wife told us she told him he didn't have to get it, she loved him anyway...and she never got to take him home.

    Saw an ER patient, female, approx. 35 y/o. Was having intercourse using protection and the condom slipped off inside her and her and boyfriend couldn't get it out!

    Grntea, he was flicking his bic. Or rather, trying to flick his much younger mistress' bic. I just wonder...ugh, nm. No wondering allowed.

    undoubtedly, grntea, that's truly a sad story poor guy, that's why we men need to listen to our wife's, well for those who have wife's.

    generally speaking, i work in environment that caters mostly to male patients at least 96% of our patients are men. having said that, last summer one of my regular patients, you know the type i'm referring to, came in with a trench-coat in the middle of summer!. needless to say, after he closed the door behind him, he open his trench-coat to reveal a condition known as priapism! that he has sustained for over 6 hours!!! however, he was so embarrassed about it, he was praying that it would go away own it's own. therefore, my question to all of you is, have you encountered any embarrassing illnesses that you had to addressed knowing; that the patient was totally ashamed having to discuss this with you?
    i was working in emergency rm one night, when emt's brought in a stretcher with two people on it. we recognized the person on the bottom as one of the female doctor in this hospital the one on top was her husband. it seems they were enjoying the fruits of marriage when the doc got a spasm locking her husband in position. we had to give the doc a shot to relax her muscle. it took 45 minutes for the shot to work. a female rn and myself had to stay with the loving couple until the med work. we had to keep up a conversation. what did we talk about? baseball. the doc and her husband were big mets fans. so there we were talking to two naked people join together by the tree of life talking about the mets. after the med work we had to give them scrubs to put on so they could go home. oy!

    wow....my heartfelt sympathies to the dr....how embarrassing for her.
    it's too bad they didn't have any muscle relaxers at home...
    i think i would have tried just about anything to 'disengage', before getting hauled off to the hospital.

    My two favorites are the 16 hour priapism and the vibrator in the butt of the old man. The vibrator story is funny/embarassing because he's a relative of a FF and walks with a cane normally. So, seeing him duck waddle with a cane was.. hard to keep a straight face with.

    the thing was this happen in a very small town in state were the wild west was still alive and kicking. no one except easterners, like myself, were shocked. in that community, farming was the big thing. that the doc and here husband had sex was accepted. the whole process of life went on every day with farm animals. nudity was more accepted out there.
