    South Africa: First 'successful' penis transplant

    The world's first successful penis transplant has been reported by a surgical team in South Africa.



    The 21-year-old recipient, whose identify is being protected, lost his penis in a botched circumcision.

    Doctors in Cape Town said the operation was a success and the patient was happy and healthy.

    The team said there was extensive discussion about whether the operation, which is not life-saving in the same way as a heart transplant, was ethical.

    There have been attempts before, including one in China. Accounts suggested the operation went fine, but the penis was later rejected.

    Penis replacement

    The man was 18 and already sexually active when he had the circumcision.
    The procedure is part of the transition from boyhood to adulthood in parts of South Africa.


    These boys are undergoing a circumcision ceremony in South Africa

    The boy was left with just 1cm of his original penis.

    Doctors say South Africa has some of the greatest need for penis transplants anywhere in the world.

    Dozens, although some say hundreds, of boys are maimed or die each year during traditional initiation ceremonies.

    Long

    Surgeons at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital performed a nine-hour operation to attach a donated penis.

    One of the surgeons, Andre Van der Merwe, who normally performs kidney transplants, told the BBC News website: "This is definitely much more difficult, the blood vessels are 1.5 mm wide. In the kidney it can be 1 cm."

    The team used some of the techniques that had been developed to perform the first face transplants in order to connect the tiny blood vessels and nerves.

    The operation took place on 11 December last year. Three months later doctors say the recovery has been rapid.

    Full sensation has not returned and doctors suggest this could take two years.

    However, the man is able to pass urine, have an erection, orgasm and ejaculate.

    Preparation

    The procedure required a lot of preparation.

    The team needed to be sure the patient was aware of the risks of a life-time of immunosuppressant drugs.

    Also some patients cannot cope with a transplant if they fail to recognise it as part of their body.

    "Psychologically, we knew it would have a massive effect on the ego," said Dr Van der Merwe.

    It took "a hell of a lot of time" to get ethical approval, he added.

    One of the concerns is a heart transplant balances the risk of the operation against a certain death, but a penis transplant would not extend life span.

    Dr Van der Merwe told the BBC: "You may say it doesn't save their life, but many of these young men when they have penile amputations are ostracised, stigmatised and take their own life.

    "If you don't have a penis you are essentially dead, if you give a penis back you can bring them back to life."

    Further attempts on other patients are expected to take place in three months time.

    Note the article sub-heading 'Long' is referring to the duration of the operation!

    I fancy getting one a different colour just for the surprise factor!

    Maybe travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and get one those monster black mambas to scare the girlies with

    Could be an entirely new market in medical tourism!

    Hope I never require emergency replacement surgery in Korea

    Botched circumcision.
    Argument fodder for those against.

    Make sure the practitioner is duly qualified, and not some backwoods witch doctor.

    I think you may have to spread your message a bit wider than Teak Door to connect with the target audience.

    I noticed all the doctors were white and the patient was, from the background information, obviously black and there was a donor penis.

    Then, the article mentions...

    Was it the cock and balls or just the cock?

    If you wake up in the morning with wood is it your wood or the other guys?

    Is it gay to choke another fellas monkey if it is surgically attached to you?

    Ghost Penis

    An exciting new film by Long Dong Juan Productions
    In this thriller a man's destiny is changed once the will of his donated penis and the diabolical mind that once controlled it tries to dominate the donors body in order to take over the world.

    "No honey, you know I wouldn't have done that slag whore, she looks nothing like you, but Ghost Penis was controlling my mind."

    Presumably the donor list is drawn from those who are surgically changing sex .

    In a way I suppose it could fund they're operations .

    Do they do ' micro surgery ' ?

    Christ Looper, i didn't think this would be a serious thread.

    From the title i assumed the poster now known as "runner" had in fact moved to Safrica.


    On another note, i do think it would be gay to pull another mans penis even if it is attached to you.

    How about if the other fella is not dead?

    He could of been de-cocked by a sharia court for spanking it more than the Koran allows.

    If the other fella is still alive I am going with defo

    They are going to attempt a human head transplant in 2017. It's already been done on a monkey. With all this transplanting going on, we should see some interesting results in a few decades. Maybe guys with genius level heads and West Africa cocks.... that sort or thing....
    I blame the Americans......and Thaksin.

    If you had to get another fellas trouser python would you put it inside your wife?

    Would you let her put another man's penis in her mouth?

    Can you get a donor card?

    I want my purple monkey to live on after my death.

    My faithful monkey and my eyes and they all have to go to the same punter and he cannot be an ugly fat fuck.

    My cousin was a participant on the first heart transplant in Australia with Dr. Victor Chang and the the patient was Fionna Cootes.

    I would expect that to stick a penis back on one's body is far more complicated then putting a pump back.

    Can you get a new penis for fun even if yours works OK?

    Can you sell your penis on eBay?

    How much would you sell your penis for?

    I believe an added appendage upon one's chin would be more appropriate worthy.

    Not sure but today I saw this lady collecting money for a vagina transplant after giving birth to eight children.


    There she was, waving her bucket around...
