In response to the guy with green balls: I've had Forniers gangrene and I've lived to tell the tale. AMA
My comment in the green balls post received wayyyy more interest than I thought there'd be.
When I was a child, 2 yrs old, drs wanted to do a 24 hr urine sample. The easiest way to do this was to catheterize me. Due to their incompetence, they poked a hole in my urethra wall and from this developed urethral structure disease. This means that scar tissue would build up so I could not pee. I'd then have to go in for a cystoscopy approx once a year to have it either cut out or stretched (pushing a scope past the scar tissue, essentially tearing it open). I was not always put out when this happened. I remember once it had closed off completely and a resident tried to force a catheter in me, it took 8 nurses to hold me down, two on each limb. The pain was unbearable and I could be heard screaming throughout the emerg. My only satisfaction came when he punched a way through was pissing all over the resident. I was about 12 at the time. There's more but lets get closer to present day.
I've had Forneir's, usually you end up loosing your testicles and penis but I was lucky in my case. I had developed a hole in my urethra and was basically urinating into my body.
I remember going home from work on a friday night (yes I still worked, even with swollen testicles like this) and basically passing out all weekend. I came to about 5:30am on Monday morning and knew if I didn't call an ambulance I'd be dead. I was operated on for several hours, in hospital for a couple of months and I have since had to have 2 urethral reconstructions done, my most recent being in July of this year. I'm 35, happily married, to answer a couple questions in the other post. Go ahead, AMA. Not sure how I can prove all this, I know I'll be asked to.
Edit. Be back later. Supper time.
Edit #2. I know there are many sexual questions you all have but as that involves someone else other than me I prefer to keep the details private. Suffice it to say that yes sex is still possible.
Edit #3. Time for bed. It's past 2 now. I'll answer any other questions tomorrow. Thanks for all your interest, I hope I've helped people learn something.
Dang me I made front page
Edit #4. Thanks for making this AMA fun. If I would have known it was going to be this great I'd have tore my urethra sooner.
