Viagra Overdose Leads To Penis Amputation For Colombian Politician

penis amputation

I feel pretty confident making a broad sweeping generalization about this: losing your penis is every man’s worst nightmare. For one Colombian politician, that nightmare became a reality after an overdose of Viagra. The 66-year-old man didn’t just suffer through an erection that lasted longer than four hours — his boner ached for “a few days” after taking too many little blue pills. Doctors eventually had to amputate his “inflamed, fractured” penis after it showed signs of gangrene. GANGRENE ON HIS PENIS, YOU GUYS! Bruising on his testicles only exacerbated this gentleman’s horror, although fortunately his testicles are still attached.

Well, there’s one less politician with a willy he can photograph. Perhaps Anthony Weiner should be taking notes. [Raw Story] [Image of man looking at his penis via Shutterstock]

Christina Stevens is AmputeeOT

In January of this year, occupational therapist Christina Stevens of St. Louis had an awful accident while changing the brakes on her car. She sustained so many “crush” injuries in her foot that she made the difficult decision to get a below-knee amputation.

“What’s really interesting about this whole ordeal is that I’m an occupational therapist. I have done a lot of research and work with amputees and also with wheelchair users and so I think that I have a unique perspective going into this whole thing because I’ve been on both sides of the therapeutic relationship…I think that puts me in a unique situation to perhaps offer some different insights for people who might be going through the same or similar things to me,” said Christina, who goes by the name AmputeeOT, in her introduction video.

Amputee Receives A Special Mermaid Tail

For those of you who are tired of hearing about the Kardashian wedding (me!), check out this video of a double amputee whose life has been changed thanks to a special prosthetic tail. Nadia lost both of her legs due to a medical condition at the age of four. Since sports were out of the question, she immersed herself in swimming, telling other kids she was a mermaid. Years later her dream of becoming an actual mermaid (well kind of) came true when she wrote a letter to the Weta Workshop in New Zealand, Peter Jackson’s specialty costume studio. Special effects geniuses made Nadia a custom prosthetic mermaid tail so she would be able to swim, well, like a mermaid. Okay, I’ll admit it, I started tearing up when they showed her swimming in the ocean with that music swelling. Take that Kardashian wedding cake! [Dooby Brain] Keep reading »

Amputee Plays Piano With His Feet Better Than We’ll Ever Play With Our Hands


There’s nothing like an armless piano savant to make us realize that we’ve never truly accomplished anything with our lives. Twenty-three-year-old Liu Wei lost his arms in an electrocution accident when he was only 10 years old. But that didn’t stop him from learning to play the piano — with his toes. Liu appeared last week on “China’s Got Talent” and blew the competition away. Trust us, you’ll be crying by the end. [Gawker] Keep reading »
