A 48-year old man who underwent surgery to remove his ten-stone testicles hopes that he may be able to find love that could help him be happy once again.
Wesley Warren Jr accidentally squashed his testicles five years ago when he was getting out of his bed. Doctors tried to bring down the swelling through antibiotics but without any success.
AdvertisementWesley was diagnosed to have scrotal lymphoedema, a severe build-up of fluid, which is an extremely rare condition found more commonly in Africa and south east Asia where it is caused by parasites. He tried to raise funds for surgery through donations but was stopped by social services before Californian consultant Dr Joel Gelman offered to perform the surgery free of cost provided Nevada's Medicaid system was willing to pay using a hospital theatre.
Stating that he now feels a great sense of comfort following the surgery, Wesley said, "I do feel a great sense of comfort that the weight is no longer between my legs. It got to the point that it was a danger to my health. But when I look down at what's here now it's not the same as what it was. It's totally different. My natural look prior to the growth is not what came out of surgery. What came out of surgery is a nub an inch long and it doesn't get any larger."
