David Worsley, left testimony 'exploded like a volcano' explains
David Worsley, 59, was left in agony when his privates swelled to ten times normal size before his left testicle 'exploded like a volcano' as he took a bath
The grandad was in agony as his privates swelled to ten times their normal size when he got home.
His left testicle then burst as he had a bath and he is now taking legal action against tour operator TUI.
He said: “I was told that I had a rare form of salmonella called African salmonella.
"After the holiday, my testicle had swollen to the size of a grapefruit and it was so heavy it was like it was made of glass.
“The pain was so bad I thought I was going to die.
“When it finally exploded I felt fantastic. It was such a relief.
"The doctor said I was highly contagious and that I wasn’t allowed to sleep with my wife. I was walking around holding them all the time, it was so heavy.”
“A few days later, 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.
David, from Bolton, said: “It literally went bang. When the doctor saw it later she said that it was like a volcano exploding. But it was such a relief because the pain had been so bad.”
“It has definitely affected me psychologically, it’s a big part of being a man that has gone.”
The security guard was with wife Joanne, 50, at the Rui Marco Polo Hotel in Hammamet when he fell ill in 2014.
Despite sickness and a high temperature, he claims a TUI rep said he just had sunstroke.
