A local farmer/politician from the south of Colombia was forced to undergo a penis amputation after he enthusiastically overdosed on Viagra.

The 66-year old man from the tiny town of Gigante, Huila, confessed to the local newspaper he had overdosed on Viagra in an attempt to please his new girlfriend.

However, as a result of his overly enthusiastic penis-enhancing-drug use, the anonymous man — who claims to be a former member of the Gigante municipal council — found that his penis had gone into an apparently constant state of erection.

Initially, the self-proclaimed politician didn’t mind his altered state, but found out his member began to hurt a few days into the erection.

Gigante doctors were alarmed by the complexity of the issue and referred the man to Neiva, the department capital with more ample medical facilities.

Medics at the Neiva hospital alerted the man 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.

“The patient showed bruising on the testicles and penis, was treated and is recovering well,” a medic told local newspaper La Nacion.

The hospital warned locals to not use penis enhancing drugs without prescription to avoid incidents like this.
