This blokes scrotum swelled to reach a massive 80lbs. After deciding that it was affecting every aspect of his life he thought it was time to get the giant mass removed.
Dan Maurer, from Battle Creek, Michigan, first noticed that his scrotum began to grow when he was in his 20’s. For years doctors told Mr Maurer that he needed to lose weight and his condition was due to carrying excess fat.
His true condition is actually known as scrotal lymphedema. He realised he could be suffering from this condition after he watched a TV show about a man with a 120lbs scrotum.
Scrotal lymphedema is a disease caused by a blockage of the lymphatic vessels, in which tissue builds up outside of the testis, resulting in a large amount of swelling.
Mr Maurer and his wife, Mindy, have admitted that they are now able to have sex again after the operation, something they haven’t been able to freakin’ do since 2006. Seven years of abstinence! Eesh.
The operation on his family jewels took a grand total of 14 hours. It is apparently a very dangerous operation, but I’d say considering Mr Maurer’s quality of life had been so affected he was up for it.
He was placed on a breathing machine for four days after the surgery because his lungs had weakened. He is now healed well and this could be the beginning of a whole new life for the lad.
Eight surgeons were involved in the operation.
Even walking must have been a struggle before the operation. Mr Maurer will soon have a documentary coming out about his story and how his life has transformed.
Life is good again!
Big congrats to Dan and the missus for no longer having to put up with a scrotum weight equivalent to five bowling balls!
Because of that fucked up U.S medical system here is the GoFundMe page to help out with the $80,000 bill.
