Posted on Mon, 20 Apr 2015
Question: My husband came home from being out of town late Tuesday night. He woke me up late Wednesday night and showed me his penis was quite swollen near the head and was discolored. We have not had sexual intercourse. He went to the doctor Thurs. and comes home to tell me the dr said he may have fractured it by rolling over on it in bed. He had to have surgery Fri to fix the problem. Is rolling over truly feasible? Could certain stds cause this?

He was put on bacterium DS after surgery. Is this to prevent infection after surgery or could this be to cure a STD?
He didn't experience swelling till 24 hrs after possible sexual encounter. Could it have taken that long to sweep?
