I did not think Jimmy Fallon was funny. That is just the reason I do not watch him. It is making fun of a person that has a serious problem. Would he make fun of a person with cancer? Dan, we are all so proud of you to bring awareness about this issue. I had never heard about it until I read the post on facebook. I donated 2 times and wishing you and your wife happiness.
Dan I just heard about you on The tonight show making jokes about your condition. I didn't think it was funny ,because I just surgery in April for my similar condition. Mine was about 30lbs. I had my surgery at Cleveland Clinic. mine went form nothing to 30lbs over 3 years. The only other person I have heard with a scrotum as large as yours was Wes Warren . He had his remove and died a year later from other things. I wish well on your journey. Be well.
It was a rough deal for you, Dan, and you can expect to feel a little sad. Any change brings that out in us. The thing to remember is that we have control of how we choose to feel. Just remind yourself of where you were and where you've come and be grateful. Gratitude always takes away my negative feelings. God Bless!
Dan please remember you did not get this way over night. The healing process will take time. Your healing will come in God timing not our timing. Stay strong and know that so many people love you and are praying for you..

Dan, that link didn't work for me but I found the video. Here is a link if other people can't get to it. Stay strong. You obviously have been through a lot. The video said 150 pounds lighter after surgery. That is a person. No wonder it is going to take time to heal. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. http://abc7.com/health/80-pound-growth-successfully-removed-from-scrotum/297103/
Great news Dan we are very proud to hear of your process.. your updates are amazing we will continue to pray for your speedy recovery take it easy love, Dan and monica
Good job with the steps. Hang in there and stay strong. It will all be worth it. I look forward to hearing your updates, and am sending positive thoughts your way.
Hello Dan in 1996 in may I had what was suppose to be a routine hysterectomy and ended up infected, staples in backwards etc, I was a mess i was bedridden for 6 months very painful had nursing in my home to pack my wound you have to keep pain meds at hand and believe in yourself to push as you are doing you are in our prayers daily for healing and getting thru this.. keep your faith trust in God he will hear all of our prayers....trust.....
Pain meds will take longer to kick in if you try to wait too long between. It's more effective to take them on schedule. That said, Dan, if your pain isn'y managed, talk to your nurses. They can help. So can ice packs. And diversions. I once got through a post-surgical night on nothing but a prayer; seriously, the pain meds weren't working so I held fast to a rosary and just prayed. Keep hanging in there. It's going to br a lot of recovery and pain. It will go away eventually but you just have to hang on to today.
Hello Dan so good to hear you are trying to walk etc, keep going but don't push to hard to fast. Time will heal all wounds from what I hear.
