A 45-year-old UK man lost his penis in 2014 following a blood infection which caused his sexual organ to fall off.
Following the incident, Malcolm MacDonald’s sexual organ was reattached to his arm, and he is currently awaiting surgery for the organ to be returned to its normal location.
In 2014, MacDonald suffered a perineum infection that spread to his fingers, toes, and later his sexual organ.
MacDonald told British press that one day his sexual organ just fell on the floor and he simply tossed it in the bin.
“Because I had been through the devastation of knowing I was going to lose it, I just picked it up and put it in the bin,” MacDonald told British press.
MacDonald called the incident “devastating” noting that losing his manhood led him to abuse alcohol as he had become severely depressed.
In the midst of his ordeal, MacDonald’s General Practitioner recommended that he see Professor David Ralph of the London’s University College Hospital.
Professor Ralph has been dubbed the “penis master” after he famously created a “bionic penis” for a man born without one.
Following a meeting with Ralph and his team, MacDonald said the professor told him he could perform an arm-graft procedure, in which he would be able to get a new penis.
The procedure was funded by the government as it would eventually allow MacDonlad to urinate properly.
Ralph’s team re-attached the sexual organ to his arm because that was the part of the body with the best skin quality and sensation.
“Of course it is mad – having a penis on your arm,” MacDonald added, further noting that he had not gotten used to the body part dangling from his arm.
The newly created organ was not meant to stay on McDonald’s arm but a series of delays, due to the coronavirus, obstructed plans for the organ to placed in its correct position.
Malcolm is hopeful that by year’s end he will be able to have the surgery to make the amendment.
While perineum infections otherwise known as Fournier’s gangrene are rare, men are more likely than women to contract the bacteria.
