A veteran of the army who lost his manhood on the battlefield has finally undergone transplant.
 
A veteran whose lower half was swept away by a bomb blast underwent one of the first p*nis transplants in the world.
 
The squaddie, named Ray, called the revolutionary operation “one of the best decisions I’ve ever made”.
He was tended to a wounded soilder in an ambush by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan when a bomb exploded beneath him.
 
The 2010 explosion took the legs of the US Navy Corpsman over the knee – and his genitals, which were the most devastating for him.
 
In an interview with MIT Technology Review, he said, “I remember everything froze and I was upset.
 
“I remember thinking quickly:” It’s not good. “And then I was on my back.”
New hope
 
In 2013, Ray met a plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Redett of Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, to discuss his options.
 
Dr. Redett said Ray, who was in his mid-thirties and was walking with two prosthetic legs, might be the ideal candidate for a revolutionary penis transplant.
 
Ray said, “In fact, it was something that could fix me. I could become normal again. “
Until recently, the only treatment available to men in this situation would have been phalloplasty: transplantation of a fortuitous member of tissues, blood vessels and nerves taken from the forearm or thigh, requiring use of an external pump to stand up.
 
A penile transplant is much more complex than other types of organ transplants.
 
The transplantation of the penis of a donor involves many types of tissue and requires the seaming of nerves and blood vessels with a width of less than 2 mm.
Dr. Redett said, “The threads are smaller than a human hair. Unless you’re under a microscope, you can not even see it. “
 
 
At the time of their meeting, only one person had undergone such a procedure and only three patients in the world have done so since.
 
The first rudimentary penile transplant was performed in 2006 on a 44-year-old Chinese man who would have abducted him at the request of his wife.
 
In 2014, a 21-year-old woman from Cape Town, South Africa, who suffered gangrene after a sloppy circumcision, underwent a p*nis transplant.
 
Then, doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital operated on a 64-year-old man who had lost his p*nis of cancer in 2016.
 
And in 2017, the same South African transplant doctors did the same with a 41-year-old man who also suffered a circumcision that went wrong.
 
Dr. Redett and his team took 14 hours to complete Ray’s procedure in March 2018.
 
His operation involved a piece of transplanted tissue measuring 10 inches by 11 inches in total and weighing 5 pounds.
 
He said it was “the most complex p*nis transplant to date” and the first for a military veteran.
Ray, who had lost all of his reproductive organs, also received a new scrotum – but not the testicles, for ethical reasons involving the donor’s sperm, according to his doctors.
 
According to the Technology Review, a total of 1,367 US military personnel suffered significant genital injury in Iraq and Afghanistan between 2001 and 2013 – and experts say the veterans’ mental health suffers tremendously.
 
“They ask where are the testicles and the p*nis,” the newspaper reports.
 
“You cannot quantify how much it affects the lives of any of these wounded warriors.”
However, some doctors – such as Dr. Hiten Patel, chief resident of the Johns Hopkins Brady Institute of Urology – argue that the procedure is medically unnecessary.
 
According to Dr. Patel, a penis transplant “lacks both life-saving and life-enhancing properties compared to a readily available alternative in phalloplasty”.
 
Given that about 41% of veterans deployed between 2001 and 2007 were more likely to consider suicide, a devastating and persistent trauma of this type could mean life or death long after recovery.
