This is a little weird. Wesley Warren (the man famous for his 132-pound scrotum) has passed away from a non-scrotum health issue.
The lymph edema had a severe effect on Warren’s personal life and health. He weighed 300 pounds (140 kg) before the onset of the condition and he suffered from high blood pressure and asthma.
The swelling increased his weight to about 450 pounds (200 kg). Because his penis and testicles was enclosed by the gigantic scrotum, he was unable to urinate normally or to have sex. Simply keeping his scrotum under cover was a challenge in itself, which he eventually solved by wearing an upside-down full-size hooded sweatshirt over it with his legs in the sleeves. Traveling on buses required him to bring along a milk crate and a cushion on which to rest his scrotum during the journey. As travel was so difficult, he would spend most of his time in his apartment’s living room watching television while propping his scrotum on top of the milk crate.
Warren’s doctor advised him to seek surgery on Medicaid, which would involve cutting away the swollen tissue and performing reconstructive surgery, including skin grafts to restore his penis and testicles. However, Warren was advised that they might have to be removed along with the tissue. This was not welcome news: “Basically, he was telling me there was a good chance that I would be castrated and have to go to the bathroom through a tube for the rest of my life. I really would like to have a relationship with a woman. I should be in the prime of my life right now.”
According to reports, Warren passed away at the University Medical Center after suffering two heart attacks in recent weeks.
Warren’s friend told the Vegas Review-Journal, Warren’s been hospitalized for the last 5-and-a-half weeks for infections stemming from his diabetes, and suffered the heart attacks while in the hospital.
Warren was 49.
