1st Penis transplant successful in South Africa, patient gets normal erections
Finally the good news is here. A man who underwent the first penis transplant operation in the world was finally reported to have had penetrative sex with his girlfriend. This medical feat was accomplished in South Africa and the news obviously is going viral on social media and search engines across the world.
It is needless to say that the 21-year-old man who underwent the first of its kind surgery in the history of medical science must be feeling the luckiest person in the world as without it he wouldnâ€™t have been able to live normally.
Now the doctors too must be feeling reassured that their tricky operation was actually successful. Professor Frank Graewe, who was part of the experts who oversaw the surgery was very excited the news about the man being able to perform penetrative sex. â€œHe gets good quality erections, ejaculates and has frequent sex with his partnerâ€, the doctor said.
It is amazing that the young man is back to his normal self as far as his sex life is concerned. Merely five weeks after the transplant at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa, is able to normally have sex with his partner.
Reports claim that the 21-year old man apparently lost all but a 1cm stump of his penis three years ago following a botched circumcision. Reports suggest that the tricky operation was performed as doctors transplanted a new penis, donated by a dead man.
But doctors said that the penis will not be similar. â€œIt will never be 100 per cent similar, because even when the individuals have the same skin colour, complexions differâ€, doctor added. Professor AndrÃ© van der Merwe, who led the operation has worked on it for a very long time. He has reportedly spent years experimenting on cadavers to see which nerves, blood vessels and other elements had to be joined to guarantee full functioning.
