Growing a pair of balls might be a popular taunt, but 49 year old Las Vegas guy Wesley Warren found the prospect quite inconvenient with his testicles weighing 10 stones, 132 pounds or over 60 kg! Since 2008 following a testicular injury while sleeping, Wesley Warren suffered severe scrotal lymphedema or accumulation of lymph (the yellowish fluid which washes all your tissues and THE major component of the human immune system) in his testicles and scrotal sac.

In April 2013, Wesley underwent a 13 hour long surgical procedure in which the doctors removed the lymphedema affected tissue weighing 132 pounds. It relieved him of severe mobility issues, chronic pain, clothing and several other social and financial problems. The only downside was that his penis was left 1 inch long.
After he showed up on Howard Stern’s Sirius/XM radio show, there was a huge outpouring of public support through donations and prayers. August 19, 2013 marks his return to the show before another follow up surgery procedure to operate on his urethra.
Wesley Warren, hailing from the bright and lightning-fast city of Las Vegas, Nevada of the United States is quite optimistic about his operation, and hopes to lead a normal and fulfilling life thanks to thousands of people who have come together to support him financially and morally.
Here’s a video to showcase the extent of his difficulties before the surgery in April.
