A 66-year-old politician in Colombia underwent a penis amputation after, according to doctors, he “enthusiastically overdosed on Viagra.”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous but claims to be a former member of the Gigante municipal council, went to the hospital after his penis began to ache a few days into the erection.

Gigante doctors were unable to cope with the complications and referred the man to Neiva, which has more sophisticated medical facilities.

Doctors in Neiva found that the man’s penis was inflamed, fractured and beginning to show signs of gangrene. The threat of the latter spreading left the doctors with no choice but to amputate his penis.

“The patient showed bruising on the testicles and the remainder of his penis, was treated and is recovering well,” a doctor told a local newspaper.
