Horace Owiti Opiyo, known as Forence, a Kenyan man with a 3-foot penis and 11-pound testicles is finally getting the chance to live a normal life. His massive package has been surgically reduced, reports said.
In 2006 Horace first noticed a cyst on his genitals and had it removed, but it came back with a vengeance a year later, bringing the length of his penis to almost a meter.
Horace, 20-years-old, was forced to drop out of school and did not have the money to pay for the surgery. He tried herbal remedies to help his condition but they did not work. He started to believe he was cursed.
“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.
The condition was actually caused from a mosquito biting and injecting larvae into the bloodstream. At which point it can develop into parasitic worms that block the body’s drainage system and cause swelling.
Forence’s neighbor posted his story on social media and it quickly went viral. It garnered the attention of a local governor’s wife who ordered a doctor to inspect him.
Horace was given two operations to reduce the size of the scrotum and rebuild the penis so it can be used.
“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,” Forence said after the surgery.
“Now I can run and I can play football.”
Forence’s scrotum is still functional and he hopes someday to start a family. For now, he said, his first priority is an education.
“I’m free! … Who knows what will happen in the future?”
