FORMER prison inmate, Dawud Yaduallah is suing a nurse in the United States, claiming that he suffered an erection that lasted 55 hours as a side effect of medication he had been given.
Yaduallah, 43, said he had to wait more than two days before being taken from the New York prison to hospital for treatment.
According to media reports, Yaduallah said that his daily dosage of anti-psychotic medication was increased by 25 per cent by nurse Judith Lovelace and as a side effect he had a persistent and painful erection.
This left him "irreparably injured" with "severe damage to his penis, including erectile dysfunction, inability to ejaculate and pain during sexual intercourse", court papers say.
Yaduallah also claimed that he now needs a prosthesis "to possibly restore some sexual function" and says "his medical problems have caused difficulty in his marriage".
He has also accused Ms Lovelace of giving him no medical relief, doing nothing "other than telling Mr Yaduallah to apply ice to his penis".
