No Negligence in Trial Over Man's 8 Month Erection

Jury Finds no Negligence in Trial Over Man's 8-Month Erection

By Myles Miller

WILMINGTON, Delaware (Reuters) - A jury on Monday, cleared a doctor of negligence in a lawsuit filed by a Delaware truck driver who underwent a penile implant procedure and ended up with an erection that lasted eight months.

"We're stunned," attorney Michael Heyden said as he left the New Castle County courthouse, where his client Daniel Metzgar, 44, of Newark, Delaware, was suing urologist Thomas Desperito of Wilmington, Delaware.

In April 2010, four months after the procedure was performed, Metzgar experienced swelling and went to a hospital, where he underwent testing. Before going to the hospital, Metzgar had been unable to reach Dr. Desperito.

The doctor's lawyer argued that hospital staff who performed tests were unfamiiar with penile implants and were not properly trained to do them. Therefore, the results from the tests, including images showing swelling, did not prove negligence.

Metzgar and his attorney during the one-week trial described the frequent discomfort and daily embarrassment he experienced after the procedure - including trouble riding a motorcycle, wearing normal clothes and joining family social events.

"I could hardly dance, with an erection poking my partner," Metzgar told jurors at the start of the trial. "It's not something you want to bring out at parties and show to friends."

Metzgar's stepson Alexander King, 18, described a once close relationship that grew distant after the procedure. King felt uncomfortable having friends over and noticed his stepfather stopped showing up at school and sporting events.

"I was, - I'm sorry, - highly embarrassed," he testified during the trial.

The device was ultimately removed in 2010 after tubing punctured Metzgar's scrotum. He received a replacement implant from another doctor.

Metzgar had no comment on the jury verdict.

The doctor's lawyer, Colleen Shields, said, "We think the jury reached the appropriate verdict."

He was robbed. The jury showed zero sympathy in his predicament.

Dr. Desperitolkkl Really

Yeah, I'd really go to a doctor for penile implants with a name like Dr. Desperate -- oh, I mean -- whatever.

Inability to edit posts sucks. Really makes you think before posting. And then changing your mind.

From what I understand, you have to contribute again to edit.

I think most men think it would be a dream come true until reality hits them.

No offense guys, but, comedians joked about having an erection longer than four hours.

There are medical issues involved.

Not sure what the hang up on that is, Kelly asked me/us to wait befor donating again because Chris.was working on somthing. I'm clueless (as usual) whats going on, I can proof read my post 3-4times and soon as I click submit DOH staring right at me is a horrible typo. Hate it.

Usually someone will point out my mistakes, but, I've seen a post or two where no one told me. Perhaps they didn't notice.

I/we can edit for up to 2880 minutes and if you are editing and you hit that moment, it doesn't post.

That is very frustrating as well.

For some reason, it's always harder to see our own mistakes :)

I know there is some security issue with the embedding. That, too, is driving me crazy!
