Man With 100-Pound Giant Testicle Says ‘No’ to Free Surgery Offer (Photo and Video)
Wesley Warren Jr. is a man from Las Vegas who became famous late last year for having a 100-pound giant scrotum caused by an excess of watery fluid collecting around his testicles. In fact, he has appeared on various shows for interviews which made him famous for his condition.
Since then, Warren truly embraced his celebrity status that he has turned down a free surgery offered to him lately by the producers of the “The Dr. Oz Show” in exchange of exclusive interview rights.
While fearful he might die on the operating table during the highly complicated surgery, he also said he did not like the fact that Dr. Oz wanted to confine all interviews to his show.
“Howard Stern (the radio shock jock) wants me on his show,” he said reminding that he’ll soon appear on The Learning Channel and that Fire Cracker Films of Great Britain signed him to a contract for a documentary.
But Warren grows angry if anyone suggests he wants the spotlight more than the corrective surgery. “Who would want to live like this? I just don’t want to die during the operation,” he said.
Warren’s scrotum prevents him from holding down a job and makes it difficult for him to urinate properly. But the surgery is complicated and it carries the risk, among others, that his penis and testicles could have to be completely removed if surgeons can’t stop the bleeding.
Several mocking comments from readers were made indicating their dissatisfaction to Wesley’s decision of turning down the free surgery offer in exchange of being in the limelight.
“So being famous is more important than being healthy?,” one reader commented. “Think the guy needs counseling before surgery,” another reader commented.
