Penis question (not perverted I promise!) - page 2

I thought I had seen a lot of things to do with err...boy's bits through the course of my working life....it turns out I haven't. One of the docs on the weekend asked me to cath a young fella...piece... Read More

    Why was the last penis question yanked? I could understand if I was being crass or something but it's a legitimate question and I appreciate the responses, thankyou.

    And to those that would censor it, I'd want to know why because after all, we are nurses and I'm sure no one is offended by the word "penis" in this job. We talk about a lot worse things in handover! :P

    I believe the last penis thread was "kinky" in a different way and that is why it got yanked! (tongue firmly in cheek here)

    Since we are on the subject. I have a clinincal question.
    Yesterday a nurse told me she tried to remove a foley from a male patient. He happened to have a metal implant. She could not get the baloon to deflate. When she drew back with the syringe the sides of the cath just collasped.
    She asked a male collegue to help. He threaded a stylet from a dobhoff up the baloon port and broke the baloon. (Personally I would have cut the end of the ballon port and allowed the water to drain by gravity. To me his actions were dangerous, outside of the standard of practice, outside the scope of nursing.)
    Anyway does anyone have an idea why the nurse could not get it to empty with the syringe?

    FYI the other penis thread was closed but not deleted from the board. Nothing kinky. It was a very straightforward question asking how to get someone to go to the doctor to get a problem checked. The answers were all the same, basically if he won't go you can't make him. and there really was nothing more to be said. So to leave it at that so that it did not go off in some inappropriate direction it was closed. There really was not anythin more that could be said. If you look in the archives you can still see it.

    Well, I've consulted my internal Sue Johannson (gotta love her --it's a good thing for all of you that I watch so much of the "Sunday Night Sex Show". And as I recall, being bent (in cases which the person is not born with the condition, has to do with scarring and trauma and the boy in question not running to his mommy for an icepack (as ha no doubt should have). Say for example that he took a puck to the groin when he was 7 years old.

    Yes thank you, I am well aware of how brilliant I am.

    Speaking of....

    This last week I have seen the MOST SEVERE, WORST case of hypospadius I could have ever imagined (not that I have!) The urethra is literally at the base of the penis. Interesting. Creates lots of questions among the nurses.

    The most common way for a man to injure his penis is through vigorous sex. Usually when there is not enough lubrication for a smooth entry. Many times an audible "crack" or "pop" is heard and it may or may not accompany pain. Once or twice usually doesn't do a lot of damage, but after enough times scarring can build up and either impede urine flow (most common) or lead to the visible bend you describe. Occasionally the damage is severe enough after one occurance to lead to curvature, or as we used to call it in the ED, "bent spike syndrome".

    It's simple, he insured it in case it got bent. My question is: how does the poster know so many details about her friend's huband's deformity? C'mon, I know the rest of you were all thinking this too. Admit it, you'll feel better.


    Who ME? :imbar (Actually, it was the first thing that popped into my head!!)

    Uh Johnny, its possible a little more experience at foreplay would prevent this problem for you!
