Grandad’s testicle exploded ‘like a volcano’
A grandfather has described the harrowing moment his left testicle exploded ‘like a volcano’ after he contracted salmonella.
David Worsley was enjoying a holiday to Tunisia with his wife Joanne in July 2014 when his life was turned upside down.
The 59-year-old began suffering from African salmonella, which is potentially deadly, just a couple of days into the holiday, and was severely ill when he returned to the UK.
The security guard from Bolton, Lancashire said he lost three stone as he could not keep food down, before waking up one day with ‘excruciating pain’ in his testicle.
He said: ‘I woke up at about 5am with the most excruciating pain in my left testicle. I could barely move and I was in tears from the agony.
‘I said to my wife Joanne ‘I’m really unwell’ and she called the doctor who advised I go into hospital immediately.
‘I was in for ten days and the pressure continued to grow. It got so big that I needed to carry it around in my hands. It was the size of a grapefruit.’
