Man who lost penis to blood infection has new one built on his arm

Malcolm MacDonald, a British man, lost his penis due to a blood infection, and as a result, he had a new one built and placed on one of his arms. I knew deep down it was gone and I was going to lose it." He said that despite his concerns about the infection, he was "gutted" when his penis "dropped off on to the floor" in 2015. When he eventually went to the hospital, he said that doctors told him "the best they could do" was to "roll the remaining stump up like a little sausage roll." He referred to the situation as "heartbreaking," and later turned to heavy drinking and became increasingly reclusive. Years later he met with Professor David Ralph of London's University College Hospital, who previously created a "bionic penis" for a man born without out. Surgeons were able to craft him a new penis with its own blood vessels and nerves, creating an artificial urethra and installing two tubes inflated with a hand pump to allow him to get an erection.

A dad whose penis fell off in 2014 due to a severe blood infection is now the world's first man to have a new living, breathing "piece" built on his arm with an added extra 2 inches. At the time, the man was suffering through a long-term perineum infection that caused his penis to turn black from sepsis and eventually made it fall off. The 45-year-old mechanic turned to alcohol after his distressing medical ordeal and said his life fell apart and he became a recluse. MacDonald says, "Of course it is mad - having a penis on your arm. Due to a series of delays, Mr. MacDonald was unable to have his penis fitting in 2018 and his scheduled surgery last April was cancelled due to the pandemic.

A British man whose penis fell off due to a severe blood infection had a new one built – on his arm, where he even got an extra 2 inches, according to a report. Malcolm MacDonald, 45, a mechanic, suffered a horrific infection in his perineum that turned his fingers, toes and manhood black, The Sun reported. Ralph said he could perform an arm-graft procedure, which would take up to two years. Surgeons formed a new manhood — with its own blood vessels and nerves – using a skin flap on the left arm of the right-handed man. But the new penis has still not been attached four years after the procedure due to a series of missed appointments, scheduling problems, staff shortages at the hospital and, finally, the coronavirus pandemic.

It feels like I'm cursed sometime," he said, adding that he hopes to have it finally grafted between his legs by the end of this year. A man who had a new penis grown on his arm after his first one fell off due to a blood infection has waited four years for it to be transferred to the right place. Malcolm MacDonald, 45, became the first man in the world to undergo the £50,000 NHS-funded procedure but delays have meant his new penis has remained stuck on his arm. He told The Sun he felt like a 'shell of a man' for two years and turned to alcohol and became reclusive but found new hope when he heard doctors might be able to reconstruct his manhood. He said: 'Of course it is mad – having a penis on your arm.

Professor Ralph, explained the grafting procedure and, at the time, said it would need to stay on the arm for two years before it could eventually be moved to his groin. Malcolm said he was desperate for the operation because it would allow him to live a more normal life and do simple things like go to the toilet. A father who lost his penis due to a severe blood infection became the first man to have a new "living" one built on his arm - and is soon set to have it rebuilt. NHS experts made Malcolm MacDonald, 45, a new penis through a £50,000 arm-graft procedure. The father-of-two, from Thetford, Norfolk, had endured a long-term perineum infection which saw his penis turn black before falling off completely in 2014.

He told the paper how his life and self-confidence fell apart, but that he found hope after his GP told him about Professor David Ralph, a urology expert at University College Hospital in central London, who had previously made headlines around the world for creating a "bionic penis" for Andrew Wardle, a man born without one. Mr MacDonald, who nicknamed his unusually-placed penis Jimmy as it is a "new mate", told the paper: "For two years after losing my penis I felt a shadow of a man. Prof Ralph constructed Mr MacDonald's penis, and is set to fit it as soon as possible post-pandemic. Prof Ralph told The Sun that Mr MacDonald's appendage is a "living breathing" part of his body and, once a penile implant is fitted, will allow the patient to both urinate and have intercourse. To create the penis, a skin flap was taken from Mr MacDonald's left arm and rolled to form the correct shape.
