Thought this was an interesting article. :wavey:

Man Receives First Penis Transplant in the United States

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/17/health/thomas-manning-first-penis-transplant-in-us.html?_r=0

A man whose penis was removed because of cancer has received the first penis transplant in the United States, at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

Thomas Manning, 64, a bank courier from Halifax, Mass., underwent the 15-hour transplant operation on May 8 and 9. The organ came from a deceased donor.

“I want to go back to being who I was,” Mr. Manning said on Friday in an interview in his hospital room. Sitting up in a chair, happy to be out of bed for the first time since the operation, he said he felt well and had experienced hardly any pain.

“We’re cautiously optimistic,” said Dr. Curtis L. Cetrulo, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a leader of the surgical team. “It’s uncharted waters for us.”

The surgery is experimental, part of a research program with the ultimate goal of helping combat veterans with severe pelvic injuries, as well as cancer patients and accident victims

This man could potentially be thinking with another man's head?

I don't have anything to say, beyond he is a very very lucky and a very very happy man ... but not as lucky and happy as his wife.

You see, I was the donor.

Kenny, that would work if the article hadn't mentioned the donor being deceased. Are you still with us??? Or posting from beyond?

Oy. I cannot imagine the lack of privacy about his privates that man is experiencing. I mean, COME ON. That has to be a violation of HIPPA. Although he appears to be waiving his rights to privacy by giving interviews. God forbid I had something like this done (thank you God for making me a woman), although I can't imagine what, I would keep it to myself. I wouldn't advertise.

And, okay... I KNOW that many people get organs from the recently deceased. But a dead guy's penis? I can't imagine wanting that thing anywhere near me!

Dead man's dick. Gives a whole new definition to flaccid. If this transplant makes the recipient happy, more power to him. But it gives me the creeps.

To semi-quote the movie '300' here; he was lucky that he was born with a spare :lol: :errrr:

Actually, one of the moms in my mommy group (in South Africa) cried when she heard about the first penis transplant. Her son was born without a penis. She feels that these transplants will give her son a chance at a normal life. :)

Just adding a different perspective. :)

I wonder if he was given a catalog of donors pensis to select from. We know they come in all shapes/sizes and colors-did he get to select a larger one than he previously had? I'm not sure i would be ok with a dead guys pensis if it were smaller? Not that small is bad but I would have a hard time getting on board if it was a downgrade I think!

Not to mention the poor baby in Mexico that the doctor cut off his pensis instead of the umbilical cord, this could potentially help him too! Although after that I'm not sure he's going to be all that interested in allowing anything sharp or a doctor near his pensis again-I know I wouldnt!
Trekkie: curious about your friends son-has that given any issues with urination/other problems? I didn't know it was possible? Is it a genetic thing? I hope this goes well and thinking of your friend and her baby.

Doctors already have the ability to create male sex organs. I know a child born without a penis, but it can be associated with greater issues (like genetic defects), so extensive testing was done on him to determine the cause before creating a functioning penis for him. Thanks for sharing this perspective - jokes aside, I'm sure most of understand that this could be life-changing for some:)

IIRC, he intentionally went public with this to help other men, who are dealing with this, get through the shame/guilt/secrecy/ etc.

Wow, I think this man is truly brave. By coming forward I really believe he will help a lot of people and until I read this article I had no clue how many! I did not know about the high incidence of damaged genitals for military veterans - tragic!

One thing that struck me though is how the importance of being able to pee while standing was repeatedly mentioned. Seriously? I had no idea this was such a big deal. Even though I don't have a penis (obviously) and don't want one (no matter what Freud said), I think I get how incredibly important it is for a man to have his penis. But I would think the last thing on the list of important things to do with it would be peeing standing up!
