Boy Who Had Minor Surgery On His Testicles Commits Suicide After It Left Him Impotent

A heartbroken mother whose son took his own life has spoken out about the need for mental and health support for men.

James Wentworth-Stanley was 21 when he elected to have a minor operation on his testicles, but immediately afterwards became paranoid that the surgery had left him impotent.

His depression developed at a rapid pace d he began to feel suicidal.

Only 10 days after the operation the university student took his own life, Liverpool Echo reports.


Now his mum Clare Milford Haven has stressed the importance of suicide prevention. She last year opened a support centre in Liverpool called James' Place to help others.

"He said he was feeling a bit down and I told him anaesthetic could do that sometimes and it might take a while to exit his system and to give it a bit of time, " Ms Milford Haven said.

James visited home the following weekend and it was apparent to his mum that he still didn't feel like himself.

His family tried to reassure him that the feelings he had would pass, that things would improve and that he could always make an appointment to see his doctor and talk through the concerns he was having.

Ms Milford Haven added: "He went back to Newcastle [where he was a student] and called me and said 'mum you always make me feel better' I thought he was getting over this difficulty, whatever it was."

Later the same week it became clear that James was still struggling, he missed an exam and came home where he continued to tell his mum he "didn't feel right".

An appointment was made to go and visit the surgeon the following Monday and make sure James could talk through his concerns.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
