My name is Flint, and on 2/17/2008 I broke my penis. Penile fracture is something that doesn’t happen too often.

I was messing around with my girlfriend when all of a sudden I felt a ‘pop’, followed by intense pain.

History of Present Illness:

Francis is a 20-year-old gentleman who was messing around with his girlfriend at approximately 1800 when he felt a pop and then had a significant swelling and discomfort to the shaft of his penis. The patient states the erection has subsided.

He denies any blood from the urethral meatus. He also denies any abdominal discomfort or testicular injury during the accident.


If your job requires more activity or lifting, you usually must stay off work for a minimum of six (6) weeks.


You should not lift anything heavier than 5-10 pounds for six (6) weeks after surgery or engage in activities that strain abdominal muscles.
