WillyChase: How does your penis get frostbitten? It lays right in one of the warmest parts of the body, and one that is typically not exposed. I would have expected his ears, (mine have been) fingers, nose, toes and most of the rest of his body before penis.


RTFA

The ice packs remained on Nash's penis for 19 straight hours

this wasn't a freak accident or unexpected reaction, it was gross negligence

19 hours? That seems a longish work shift.

Well that does certainly explain it, next time I'll have to read the article before wtf'ing.

"When you take away a man's manhood, it affects him in ways you can't imagine," Jones said. Nash, who served in the Army in the 1960s, now needs a catheter and has no sexual function, he said. Eventually, he will need reconstructive surgery.

He's 61 years old. Let's not pretend he still had any to begin with, mmmkay?

I wonder if he left his Doctor a Tip . . .

You might be surprised to know what people in their 60's are doing. And a fair number of them are doing it with young men and women.

Brostorm: That free healthcare for life is sounding like a bad deal for the taxpayers


It hasn't been free for over 20 years now. Vets are required to submit their financial status the first time they go to a VA clinic or hospital and receive their medical card. How much they earn in a year determines whether they receive free medical care or shared cost. The more they earn, the higher the shared cost. I found that out when I used my VA benefits at the VA hospital in Baltimore. I have not used my VA health benefits since that time. Not because I'm looking for a freebie, but because I'm already paying for a medical plan at work and will receive better care going to a non VA facility.

I call bullship

Cold packs last (stay cold) for about 3-4 hrs at room temp...obviously warming up more quickly when placed agaiinst human skin in (yes) one of the warmest parts of the body. To imply the cold was maintained for 19 hours is impossible without continued human intervention to change the packs.

No one checked skin conditon between ice pack cnhanges? Pain meds did not relieve pain enough so that ice was needed for continuous 19 hours? Guy not once move in his sleep and cause pack to slip off dangly bit? Not get up to pee/poop?

/BULLSHIP!!
//BULLSHIP, I say

You too can bet your life in return for some grudging "entitlements".
Go ahead, but on some long pants and man up.

Father_Jack: ShannonKW: pissedoffmick: ShannonKW: pissedoffmick: Sorry the guy lost his dong but - Penile implant replacement on a 61 y.o. fella? That is worth $350.00 max.

One suspects you will modify this opinion as years go by.

I am talking fair market value. Nothing personal. It is now, at best, a 3rd gen, broken, frozen, 2 inch dong. $350.00

I'm the 46-year-old owner of a temperamental 7" (at best) penis. In our time together it has let me down more times than I can count, generally does not conduct itself as a good penis ought in the rare episodes in which its services are required, and indeed perversely tends to obey the will of whatever tart I happen to be in bed with rather than mine. This delinquent tube of erectile tissue is responsible for any number of disgraceful encounters and evenings that should have turned out far better than they did had it performed its duties competently, and indeed the hundreds of dollars I've spent on erectile drugs can be laid to its account, for it cannot be relied upon to stand forth penisfully when the occasion demands. If I could fire the thing, I would send it packing this very day and laugh as it trudged limply down the sidewalk with a testicle in each hand searching for a new owner who could possibly deem its services adequate. Had I the money I might even do as the codger in TFA did and have some surgeon rip its guts out and replace them with a silicone/pump apparatus that will OBEY PROMPTLY when it receives its marching orders.

Alas, I can't. I have to make do with the penis I have, and I can tell you I wouldn't trade it for all the tea in China. You may have a point in that my penis is worth next to nothing to everyone but me, but losing it would be a devastating loss to me, nor could any amount of money compensate for it adequately unless someone devises a reliable penis transplant.

This is a post of fantastic quality, and you, sir, are a magnificent bastard.


I concur. I LOL'd heartily XD

My guess is a shift change occurred not too long after the ice was applied, and the new nurse wasn't given the instructions to remove the ice, and as it was likely under a blanket, she wouldn't have seen it when coming into his room for other things like doses of his pain meds.
Also, ice application isn't usually tracked in an administration record like medications are so the fact it had been applied could be lost pretty easily.

I'll concede that medical personnel sometimes work 24 hours straight, but that is rare. So, the same nurse that provided you the ice pack would not necessarily remove the ice pack from your room. Also, I don't think checking the ice pack is usually considered necessary.

When I gave birth and some jackwagon nurse shoved an ice pack into my nether regions,it resulted in an increase in pain. The ice was there, oh maybe, for a second or two before I flung it across the room and told her to stay away from me. So, I'm wondering is this guy telling the whole truth? If he is telling the whole truth, what kind of dope did the hospital have him on that he couldn't reach down and move that ice pack? And if he was so doped he couldn't move the ice pack, why the hell did he need the ice pack?

You go into the bush with the penis you have--not the penis you might want or wish to have at a later time.

Profedius: Let us see. We seem to hear a lot about the poor care in the VA hospitals and the government runs those hospitals. Let us all demand government provided healthcare. Look at me I am a Libtard I live in the land of rainbow dreams, free money trees and unicorn farts.

david_gaithersburg: Godscrack: "A 5 inch section was removed.."

.................

That's like what? Nearly 1/2 of the average man's penis.


More like 88%, average penis size when erect is around 6 inches.

Really, you need to lay off the porn.
