A Good Poop

Can’t keep it off

Volkmer BG, Maier S. Successful penile replantation following autoamputation: twice! Int J Impot Res. 2002 Jun;14(3):197-8.

The particularly impressive part for me is that he was able to get it up even after the second replantation.

    I question whether he was really able to get it up after each retransplantation. Note the language in the article: “patient reported on a regained erectile function” and “the patient again reported on normal erections.” Sure he “reported” that he can get it up; he also chopped it off twice, so how reliable of a source is he? Not to mention that even non-psychotic men often have issues discussing ED with doctors.

    If full erectile function was observed by the attending physician, then I might believe it. However, last I checked, the medical definition of potency was erection sufficient for penetration, so if the physician was able to ascertain potency, I would really have to wonder…

    That is an amazing article. Now to read the entire archives of the journal it was published in.
