#CODED-ish News: Meet Man with 64kg Testicles[PHOTO]

8:47 PM

Wesley Warren Junior is a 49 year old man who lives in Las Vegas. His story is strange and bizarre.
The man lives with a rare medical condition so severe that he can't wear trousers, walk normally, go to work, drive a car, have sex, or even sit down without the help of a milk crate.
His story highlights the failings of the American healthcare system, which has arguably some of the best doctors in the world, but only for those who can afford them.
While the medical professionals are unsure what caused Wesley’s condition, for him it all started one night in late 2008.
Wesley accidentally knocked his testicles while turning over in bed, causing a sharp shooting pain, and the tissues around his testicles began to swell. They’ve been growing bigger ever since.

In a case reminiscent of the tragic 19th-century ‘Elephant Man’, doctors refer to his mysterious condition as scrotal elephantiasis or scrotal lymphedema, characterised by excess watery fluid collecting in tissues of the body.

Things have got so bad that Wesley can’t lead anything resembling a normal life. The intimate documentary which aired last weekend was watched by over 3.7 million people.

According to the UK Channel Documentary, the man underwent an operation to get rid of it. He is said to now be okay and living a normal life now.
