A 66-year-old man from southern Colombia had to have his penis amputated from complications arising from trying to please his new girlfriend by taking an overdose of Viagra.
The anonymous man, said to be a local farmer and former municipal politician, was left with an erection that wouldn't fade but became painful after a few days, according to Colombia Reports, an English news organization based in Medellin.
Doctors told the frisky senior that his penis was "inflamed, fractured and showed signs of gangrene, and had to be amputated to prevent the inflammation and gangrene from spreading to other parts of his body," Colombia Reports reported.
"The patient showed bruising on the testicles and penis, was treated and is recovering well," the local newspaper, La Nacion, was told by a medic.
There was no information on the age of the new girlfriend or if the couple is still together.
