Washington, June 13:

A New Jersey man has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against his urologist for allegedly leaving him with an erection lasting eight months following a surgical procedure.

According to The News Journal, Daniel Metzgar’s from Newark underwent a surgical procedure to put in a three-piece inflatable penile implant in December 2009, CBS News reported.

The gadget consisted of two cylinders inside the shaft of the **** and a fluid reservoir in the abdomen that could fill the cylinders when pumped. The pump was placed in Metzgar’s scrotum.

Shortly after the procedure, the 44-year-old truck driver’s scrotum swelled to the size of volleyball.

But he did not report anything wrong until late April 2010, when he went back to Dr. Thomas J. Desperito, complaining of an infection and a persistent erection.

However, lawyers for Desperito have claimed that the complications like these are part of the risks of elective surgery. (ANI)
