An extraordinary condition that ballooned Wesley Warren Jr.’s scrotum to a massive 100 pounds made him feel like “a freak,” and the Las Vegas man set off on a campaign to raise $1 million for corrective surgery.
But given the chance to have the surgery — even at no cost — the 47-year-old remains reluctant to go under the knife. Friends say he doesn’t want the surgery because he likes the attention.
He attributes his condition to a painful episode in 2008, when he was turning in bed and accidentally squashed his testicles. “It was like a shooting pain through my entire body,” he said. “When it stopped, it was like a huge tractor trailer went off the top of me.”
Warren’s fears of complications during surgery aren’t unfounded, according to reports, because doctors will be dealing with a potential for major bleeding.
Still, Warren scoffs at the idea that he’s more interested in the notoriety than curing his condition: “Who would want to live like this?” he told said. “I just don’t want to die during the operation.”
