What's worse? Possibly having your wang amputated or dragging around 100 pounds of nutsack?
For one Las Vegas man, this isn't just a hypothetical question.
Wesley Warren Jr. has an unusual medical condition that has caused his scrotum to swell to more than 100 pounds. And amazingly, he just declined an offer for free surgery to correct the issue.
From an article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Producers from The Dr. Oz Show called to say Dr. Mehmet Oz had read the piece and would find the best surgeons possible to help Warren at no cost to him.
Yet Warren balked. 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.
It's a sensitive issue, no doubt. But the reporter who covered the story for the Journal thinks there may be more at play.
The Wesley Warren of today does not act like the somber Wesley Warren I interviewed last fall. Rather than on the edge of tears, he's seemingly enjoying his celebrity. He reminds you he'll soon appear on The Learning Channel and that Fire Cracker Films of Great Britain signed him to a contract for a documentary.
However, Warren was also quite emphatic in the article that, celebrity or not, no one would want to live this way.
