While we respect that this is his decision, we think this is pretty nuts.
The Dr. Oz Show offered to pay for the surgery, as long as they got exclusive interview rights.
Wesley Warren Jr. declined that opportunity.
Some people think it's because he didn't want the eyes of the public on him, but his reasons are much more blunt:
"Who would want to live like this? I just don't want to die during the operation."
The condition is caused by an excess of watery fluid collecting around his testicles.
What's strange is that he was even fundraising for the surgery, but now he's turning down the free one — regardless if it prevents him from holding down a job and makes it difficult for him to urinate properly.
We CAN understand his fear, though. The surgery is complicated and it carries the risk that his penis and testicles might be completely removed if they can't stop the bleeding. That, and other risks of course.
If you're living a happy and fulfilling life, Wesley, then we're all for you skipping out on the procedure.
If you're not, the risk is worth it.
