A man with giant genitals has had life changing surgery to reduce the size of his 11lb testicles and three foot penis.
Horace Owiti Opiyo, known as Forence to friends, was left with testicles twenty times the average size after a growth continued to get bigger despite him getting surgery to remove it.
Back in 2006, Forence, 20, noticed a cyst on his nether regions and had surgery to remove it the year after. However, it didn’t stop the growth and his penis grew to almost a metre long. That can’t have been comfortable.
His condition grew so bad that he had to drop out of school and was later diagnosed with scrotal elephantiasis. And let’s just say, the condition ain’t pretty – it occurs when a mosquito injects larvae into the bloodstream, which then grow into parasitic worms blocking the body’s drainage system and causing swelling.
Sadly Forence, from Kenya, was in such agony that he couldn’t lead a normal life. It was only when his story was put on social media that he managed to raise the money to get the operation he needed.
Forence, who lives with his grandma and brother after his parents died when he was just five, said about the surgery:
When I got up I was surprised that my body was so light. All the heaviness had gone.
I’m swimming now. I couldn’t go anywhere near the water because of the heaviness of that thing.
Now I can run and I can play football.
Now I’m free!
’Im trying as much as possible to build myself up so that I can have a wife. But the next step I want to take is to get an education.
Who knows what will happen in the future?
Feel good story of the day – hats off to anyone who contributed to Forence’s life-saving surgery. It looks like he can finally live the life that he had dreamed of. Who knew that a giant penis could be so debilitating?
