Man Grows New Appendage On His Arm After Old One Falls Off

A 45-year-old man has grown new genitalia on his forearm after his old one fell off due to a serious infection. Malcolm MacDonald lost his penis in 2014 after he got sepsis due to a long-term perineum infection. Six years later, he has a fully grown member ready to be transplanted to where it belongs, but that has yet to happen.

Malcolm MacDonald is in a precarious situation. He’d been going back and forth with surgeons to lock down a date to get the appendage on his arm moved to where it belongs and thought he finally made some headway when he scheduled the procedure for April 2020. Then the coronavirus hit and those plans went out the window and he’s stuck with this thing on his arm for God knows how much longer.

“It was like a horror film,” he admitted. Talking to The Sun, MacDonald admitted that the infection and the complications he experienced because of it, including his fingers and toes going black, was “like a horror film.” He recalled, “I knew deep down it was gone and I was going to lose it, then one day it just dropped off on to the floor. 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. I went to the hospital and they said the best they could do for me was to roll the remaining stump up like a little sausage roll. It was heartbreaking.” Yikes!

Growing something like this on your arm is revolutionary. MacDonald struggled for several years after the incident with feeling like a “shadow of a man” but then his doctor suggested that he get in touch with Professor David Ralph, an expert in phallus construction at London’s University College Hospital.

It took two years to grow the member. Thankfully, the UK’s National Health Service covered the £50,000 cost of the procedure, and MacDonald jumped at the chance. He got a skin flap taken from his left arm that was then rolled to form a facsimile of the organ, complete with its own blood vessels and nerves. It even has a urethra and two tubes with a hand pump that allow him to experience an erection.

MacDonald is pretty proud of the growth. “When I saw it on my arm for the first time I was so, so proud. After everything I had been through it didn’t feel weird at all – it was just a part of me. I was like any other man, I just couldn’t leave it alone to begin with. I thought it was the best thing ever,” he said.

Hopefully, he’s able to get the surgery soon. You have to hand it to Malcolm MacDonald – he’s keeping a positive attitude about it all! “It looks like something out of a weird sci-fi comic. But it’s my chance at a normal life. It’s been the first step towards being able to go to the toilet and even being intimate with someone.”
