A dad has been left in agony with a permanent erection after an operation to fix his damaged manhood.

James Scott, a former glazier, suffered serious pelvic injuries after 1.5 tons of glass fell on him at work four years ago.

The 57-year-old suffered four injuries in his groin area, fractured a bone at the bottom of his spine, had lacerations on both legs and suffered a blocked urethra – the tube men pee through.

The dad of one underwent an operation to repair his penis problem two years ago. However, this left him with further complications and unable to get an erection.

But an operation to fix that has now left him with a permanent erection.

Now, he says he is a prisoner in his own home as he can’t put trousers on and is in constant pain.

He also can’t have his nine-year-old daughter round to visit as he can’t get rid of his stiff penis.

But he claims doctors have refused to visit his home to sort out the painful problem.

James, from Balornock, in Glasgow, said: “After the operation, I wasn’t able to get an erection, so I had another op. They inserted metal rods into my penis.

"I was told it would be sore for about six to eight weeks after but I never expected anything like this.

“I’ve now got a permanent erection and I’m in agony.

“I can’t bear anything to touch it. I can’t even wear clothes. It’s a nightmare.”

James claimed he was told by staff at the surgery that his GP was off on holiday and there wasn’t another male doctor available to send out.

He added: “Surely male and female doctors assess patients of the opposite sex daily.”

A spokesman for Tollcross Medical Centre said: “Maintaining patient confidentiality is extremely important and it makes commenting on individual cases extremely difficult.

“In general terms, severe post-operative complications are most appropriately managed by the specialists in hospital and the safest option is for hospital assessment.”

An NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde spokesman said: “We would advise anyone who experiences adverse symptoms after an operation to call NHS24, who can recommend the most appropriate course of action.”
