BRB, Surgery.

I’ll be out of commission for a few more days. I just had major surgery. The surgery was painful, and I can barely walk. But, I’m trying to deal with it all with humor. Please forgive me for this post.


This is probably TMI – but I experienced a condition called a ‘Hydrocele’

via Wikipedia

A hydrocele (non-US English: hydrocoele) denotes a pathological accumulation of serous fluid in a body cavity. It can also be noted as a minor malformation of newborns due to high levels of lead in the mother’s blood during pregnancy. A hydrocele testis is the accumulation of fluids around a testicle, and is fairly common. It is caused by fluid secreted from a remnant piece of peritoneum wrapped around the testicle, called the tunica vaginalis. It can be the result of cancer, trauma (such as a hernia)…

My balls are huge. Not just metaphorically – literally.

I guess if I have to have a medical condition, at least it’s one that is kind of funny and appropriate for my personality.

By the way, if you are feeling ballsy, check it out on Google images (NSFW – you can’t unsee some things.) There is even a female version!

Anyway- I’d just like to say I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule ASAP. Please stay interested, stay involved, and stay motivated. We need all the support we can get to keep this momentum going. I’ve got a lot of big news to announce in the next few weeks, keep an eye out.

    Why did I look at those pics? You’re right….some things you can’t unsee.

    a theme song for you Justin.

  • You had to tell us it wasn’t safe for work didn’t you? Had you just provided the link without the internet version of “Don’t touch the red button” attached, I probably wouldn’t have clicked it. Oh, and by the way… yeah… You can’t unsee things.

    At any rate, get well soon!
