A man with a mystery medical condition that caused him to have the world’s biggest testicles has had reconstructive surgery – thanks to a Facebook post.
Forence Owiti Opiyo, 21, from Kibigori, Kenya, saw his genitals swell to ten times the average size – but doctors are baffled as to why.
Said to have been triggered by a cyst when he was 10, the bizarre condition made it impossible for him to wear clothes, walk easily and forced him to live like a recluse.
Surgery was made possible after a neighbour shared a picture of Forence’s testicles, which appears to have engulfed his penis, on their Facebook page.
The kind-hearted plea triggered an outcry of people wanting to help him, finally allowing for him to have surgery to re-shape his genitals and craft him a penis.
After being examined, surgeons scheduled two operations; the first to debulk the penis and get rid of the excess testicle mass. The second was to reconstruct his penis and fashion it into a more usual shape and size, local reports suggest.
The team behind the procedure believe he will now live normally, and will be able to have sex and even children at some point.
Forence said: ‘This thing started very small, like a boil. Then it was the size of my fist. It just continued to grow bigger and bigger.
‘I would really love to have children one day, that is what I desire. I would like to give thanks to God for healing me.’
When did it begin?
Forence Owiti Opiyo first noticed a cyst on his genitals in 2006.
An initial procedure removed the growth in 2007 but the problem re-emerged years later.
Thankfully for Forence, the surgery at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital was a success.
Dr James Obondi, consultant surgeon, said: ‘We spared the nerves, we spared the circulation and we brought the shaft to its rightful size.
