A Kenyan man with a three foot penis and 11 pound testicles has gotten a new lease on life after undergoing a life-changing surgery.
For Horace Owiti Opiyo, otherwise known as Forence, his saga first began in 2006 when he first noticed a cyst on his genitals. He had it removed, but a year later the growth retaliated with a vengeance, growing 20 times the size of a regular penis, reports The Mirror. The aliment also affected his testicles, enlarging them to a staggering 11 lbs.
“I told my grandmother that I have been infected by a disease, but I’m not sure what it is. It could be a curse. I knew this was not God’s work, but the devil’s,” Forence said.
After being diagnosed with scrotal elephantiasis, the 20-year-old was forced to drop out of school, unable to lead a normal life.
“The pain became increasingly unbearable, so that I couldn’t even walk or sit. I walked as if I had bowed legs,” he said.
The disease can be caused by a mosquito bite injecting larvae into the circulatory system. It then grows into parasitic worms blocking the body’s drainage system, resulting into extensive swelling.
Unable to pay for reconstructive surgery, Forence tried to solve his problem by utilizing natural solutions, but all his attempts ultimately failed.
