    Default The Man With the 132-Pound Scrotum (TLC)

    Man with 132 lb. scrotum gets TLC show

    By James Hibberdon Jul 31, 2013 at 2:29PM@james_hibberd



    TLC has some pretty big balls putting this on the air.

    The cable network has just announced a special titled The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum. Yes, this is happening. Yes, there are photos. We put them semi-discretely below the text, but beware: Once you see a man with a 132-pound scrotum, you cannot unsee him.

    The special chronicles the challenges of Wesley Warren Jr., a 49-year-old Las Vegas resident who is living with a rare medical condition called “scrotal lymphedema.” The show will follow “Wes’s life as he deals with day-to-day challenges that are easy for most people. Due to the large size of his scrotum, Wes has difficulty with simple tasks like walking, preparing meals and even going to the restroom.” In the show and in public, Warren wears a hoodie to keep it his scrotum covered up.

    More from the channel: “According to Wes, it all began one night in 2008 when he awoke to sharp shooting pains. Afterward, the tissue around his testicles began to swell and grew bigger ever since. It’s estimated that they were growing at an alarming rate of at least 3 lbs per month. The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum, which highlights the difficulties of living with this bizarre situation, also reveals Wes’s many attempts to find appropriate medical care and raise money for the surgery he desperately needs.”

    Notes a professor of urology, Dr. Joel Gelman: “The main specimen, after surgery, was 132 lbs, but we can’t accurately predict its total weight. With an additional specimen, tissue and cell fluid not taken into overall consideration, the starting weight could have been over 160 lbs.”
    The one-hour special airs Monday, Aug. 19. So what do you think? Was TLC savvy to package this as a special? Or should the executive who ordered it get sacked?

    This was on tv in the UK a while ago. I'll admit to being juvenile and snickering when they finally found his penis, but it was still very interesting to watch and also quite sad to think that someone was in this state because they couldn't get access to the help they needed.

    After his surgery, he was so happy to just be able to drive a car. For so long he couldn't even fit behind a wheel of a car.

    So, in all seriousness, couldn't they have removed the testicles before they got to 132 pounds?

    I know right. I would think even lugging around a 25lb scrotum would qualify you for disability and medicaid. Hell if I was an urologist, I would have fixed his nads for free.

    This was a South Park episode. He should do what they did on the show and wheel his giant balls around in a wheelbarrow.

    You can't tell me that wording wasn't intentional.

    It's not sad Kitty it's a fucking disgrace and should never have allowed to get to this. (But I know what you are saying).
    i know that the US is very anti-Islamic states, but a lot of the oil countries have free healthcare and free schooling. Just sayin'

    It was a seminal moment for his driving career. If I were him, I would prostrate myself in front of the people who performed this miracle surgery.
