41-year-old Elliott Rossiter from Bristol, UK endured a 36-hour-long erection which was so painful that he ended up needing to get surgery.
The drama started back in October 2016 when Elliott and his friend Jenny went on a trip to Nice, France.
At the time, Elliott was recovering from a painkiller addiction. He'd been taking morphine sulphate, oxycodone and codeine for around 4 years after he was in a skiing accident and became addicted to his perscriptions.
While in France, Elliott said he 'just got an erection' which wouldn't go away.
"We were all just sat around and it just came on. I tried to get rid of it but couldn't. I just got an erection. It wasn't sexual in any way at all and I wasn't feeling aroused," Elliott explained.
"I've never had a problem like this before, maybe it was because I was surrounded by so much female energy. I had to tell Jenny but it was really embarrassing. It was much bigger than a normal erection,"
"I had only been there for about 90 minutes and it just appeared. I tried to relieve myself in the usual way but I couldn't get rid of it."
This went on for 19 hours, at which point he decided he needed to see a doctor. Yeah, probably a good idea mate.
The GP gave him two injections, intended to help the erection go down, but they were unsuccessful and it became clear he needed hospital treatment. Upon arrival at the Hospital Pasteur, Elliott was diagnosed with a priapism - a prolonged erection, usually without sexual arousal, that can be caused by certain medications and drug abuse.
If left untreated, a priaprism can be pretty bloody dangerous, because your little guy won't be getting any oxygen, so they tissue can be damaged or destroyed. Major yikes.
The treatment isn't exactly pleasant either - because blood collects in the muscle during an erection, a small hole has to be drilled to drain the penis. We're feeling pretty sorry for Elliott right now.
Thankfully the surgery all went well, and Elliott's penis is fully functioning again.
He was, understandably, "scared to death" to get an erection afterwards though incase it wouldn't go away again.
"I was terrified to get one to begin with. I was definitely scared. But I was so relieved when I found out it was working as it should. I have never experienced anything like it and I don't want to ever again."
Moral of the story? Don't get addicted to painkillers lads...
