Man with 100 lb. Scrotum in Need of Penis-Saving $1 Million Surgery
Wesley Warren Jr.’s penis isn’t going to make it unless it can lose the 100 pound weight hanging from it very soon.
“It’s not easy to get around,” he said, standing and groaning as he lifted his scrotum off its makeshift pedestal and carefully let it hang almost to the floor. “It makes me stay in most of the time.”
If there is a more unusual medical condition afflicting someone from Southern Nevada, the medical community or patient hasn’t come forward with it. Warren has gone public, even though he knows there will be those who laugh at him, because he desperately wants a costly surgery to correct the scrotal elephantiasis that became part of his life nearly three years ago.
Warren’s penis is so buried within his enormous scrotum that he is unable to control his own stream of urine, causing it to spray about. Walking without the aid of a milk crate he uses to carry his scrotum, let alone holding down a normal job, is out of the question.
Doctors believe they may have a creative fix to Warren’s plight, but Medicaid refuses to cover the surgery. Doctor’s estimate the surgery will cost him $1,000,000 if he pays privately. And no, they won’t accept credit. The physical burden of a 100 pound mass hanging from between his legs is inducing asthma and blood pressure problems in Warren. Without the surgery he will certainly lose his penis and testicles, and may possibly lose his life.
For what it’s worth, keep in mind that every single Republican presidential candidate has promised to kill President Obama’s universal healthcare plan, effectively leaving this man with no chance at a healthy life. If Warren was born Canadian, British, French, or in any of 32 other countries, his surgery would have been completed long ago at no crippling personal cost to him. Those countries – hell, much of the rest of the world – actually care for their citizens.
Warren has set up a fund in hopes of accruing enough donations to embark upon the surgery he so desperately needs. If you are able to help, please contact him at [email protected]
