Man Turns Down Free Surgery to Fix His 100 Pound Scrotum
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Wesley Warren Jr. declined an opportunity to have the “Dr. Oz Show” pay for the medical expenses associated with the surgery, partially because they wanted exclusive interview rights.
But Warren bristles at the notion that he won't get surgery because he doesn't want to lose the fame he's garnered because of his condition, which is caused by an excess of watery fluid collecting around his testicles.
“Who would want to live like this?” he said. “I just don't want to die during the operation.”
In support of his decision, the surgery reportedly carries substantial risk. I could describe some of the details associated with the operation gone wrong, but it may cause you to vomit on your computer screen.
