An American man's downstairs may never function correctly again after his partner accidentally deployed some expanding foam in his urethra to combat his erectile dysfunction.

The 45-year-old male showed up in a hospital emergency department with difficulty urinating and pain according to Urology Case Reports.

A CT scan of the patient turned up what looked to be some sort of foreign object in his bladder and throughout his urinary tract.

After questioning the man, he explained that he had been "inserting various objects into his urethra as an aid for erectile dysfunction," according to the publication. Three weeks prior to his visit, his partner had inserted a straw attached to a can of weatherproofing expanding foam into his urethra and accidentally pressed the button to spray the foam.

The patient was rushed off to surgery to remove the spray foam. The surgery resulted in the removal of pieces of foam measuring up to 10cm (about 4 inches) long and 4.3cm (about 1.6in) in width.

The foam was blocking his urinary tract, causing his bladder to fill with urine (at least, the space that wasn't filled with spray foam) and causing a great deal of discomfort.

Much of the foam was too difficult to get out through the urethra, so the surgeons had to remove them by cutting a hole in his perineum. That's the area between the scrotum and the anus.

As far as the urinary tract went, there were pieces stuck that were measured up to 16mm in length.

Part of the reason they couldn't use the pee-hole to remove the foam was because it was scarred from the insertion of random household objects to try and cure his impotence.
