21-year-old man who received world’s first successful penis transplant to become a dad
There’s nothing like a good news story to perk up your day.
A South African man who received the world’s first successful penis transplant has successfully had intercourse with his new member and it was such a success that he’s now going to be a father, reports the BBC.
We originally brought you the news of the successful operation, which took place in December last year, two months ago when doctors said they hoped ‘the patient would have full use of his transplanted penis within two years’.
Back then we said we wished the man in question a speedy recovery and it sure looks like he didn’t hang around when to came to using his new penis for sex.
According to BBC News: “The South African recipient of the world’s first penile transplant is to become a father, a surgeon who performed the operation has told the BBC.
“'This is what we intended, that he should be able to stand up and be able to urinate and have intercourse, so it is a milestone for him,’ Dr Van der Merwe told the BBC.”
Fair play, anonymous South African man… Fair play.
