JOHOR BARU, MALAYSIA - The welder who was hospitalised after he used a nut to elongate his penis was finally put out of his misery when doctors removed the offending spare part.
It is learnt that staff from the Hospital Sultanah Aminah drained out some of the blood and cut away some skin on the upper layer of his organ to remove the nut.
The 20-something welder was trying to increase the length of his penis ahead of his engagement next week by weighing himself down with the nut when the nut got stuck following an erection.
Director Dr Daud Abdul Rahim said doctors got the nut off at around 11pm on Friday.
?The patient is now recovering and we hope to discharge him today,? he said.
Dr Daud declined to say whether the patient would suffer any long-term injuries.
The welder, who works in Singapore, but is from Taman Sri Skudai, sought treatment at the hospital on Thursday afternoon after he was unable to get the nut off himself.
Both hospital authorities and the state Fire and Rescue Department were involved in attempts to remove the nut.
This is the second case in the past week involving objects stuck on penises.
On Aug 25, firemen were summoned to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur to cut a steel ring from a patient?s penis after numerous attempts by doctors failed to dislodge it.
It is believed the patient, in his 20s, had slipped the ring onto his penis to increase his sexual prowess.
