A Delaware truck driver is suing the doctor that gave him a penile implant four years ago because the surgery allegedly resulted in an erection that lasted for eight straight months.

Daniel Metzgar’s 2009 procedure consisted of a three-piece inflatable penile implant being placed inside his shaft, a fluid reservoir implanted in his abdomen, and a pump placed inside his scrotum.

Somewhere within that process, something went terribly, terribly wrong. As Michael Heyden, Metzgar’s attorney, said, “Dan is stuck in this position.”

According to Heyden, the immortal boner made it difficult for Metzgar to engage in a large amount of regular tasks and past times such as riding his motorcycle, seeing his family members and dancing.

“I could hardly dance, with an erection poking my partner,” Metzgar told jurors on Monday when he took the stand. The boner has significantly crippled Dan’s social life, as he had to resort to wearing long, baggy pants and oversized shirts to hide his steel-pitched tent.

“It’s not something you want to bring out at parties and show to friends,” said Metzgar.

Dr. Thomas J. Desperito, the urologist who performed the surgery, denies sole responsibility of the eight-month hard-on. He said that the procedure couldn’t possibly be the only reason for Metzgar’s inconvenience. His attorney stressed that Metzgar should have immediately contacted his doctor when he realized that  his scrotum had swelled to the size of a watermelon.

Metzgar had the implant taken out in 2010 after its tubing broke through his scrotum while he was on a family vacation to Niagara Falls. He claims that scarring from the first surgery has left him “50% smaller” with much less sensation.

The lawsuit is still being fought out in New Castle County Superior Court.
