    Talking Man sues penile implant manufacturer after glitch causes him to have a 10 yr erection

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - A former handyman from North Providence who won more than $400,000 in a lawsuit over a malfunctioning penile implant may not get the money after a judge dismissed his claim.

    Superior Court Judge Edward C. Clifton on Monday granted a request by the implant manufacturer's insurer to dismiss Charles "Chick" Lennon's claim, which his lawyers say will amount to $1 million with interest included.

    The implant has caused Lennon to have an erection for 10 years.

    I just wonder if he was married and if so was his wife unhappy if he got it fixed.

    I read the full article earlier today. It seems the guy had an "old fasioned" implant. The article said it was installed before Viagra was available and that was the only way to keep an erection.

    The guy was supposed to be able to move it to some degree, but his stayed in a fixed position, namely pointing up.

    I can imagine the embarassment and physical pain he must have endured. At least he could get his money's worth if he ever went to Nevada.

    I don't think the implants actually gave a "real" erection, but more of a "propping up" effect that at least made some form of penetration possible. They were made of steel and plastic and had what amounts to a hinge effect. Doesn't sound like it's comfortable to begin with, for either the recepient or the recepient's intimate partner.

    If you ever read the small print on Viagra....if you have an errection lasting over 4 hrs seek medical attention immediately.

    When I worked ER we were always hoping one would come in. We figured the man would come in the front door wearing a rain coat looking embarassed and they would be wheeling the wife in the backdoor in a body bag.

    Cheers!

    Annnnnnnd it figures it took place in Rhode Island. I have never seen a bigger bunch of malcontents in my life. Rhode Islanders just live to be unhappy, impolite, rude and obnoxious.
    Yes...... I know I live here but it is not by choice...it is by marriage.
