A 47-year-old man in England named Malcolm MacDonald developed an unfortunate infection in his perineum in 2010. (In layman's terms . . . his taint.) And it got so bad, it caused his manhood to FALL OFF.
Luckily, modern science is amazing, and doctors came up with a plan to grow him a new package . . . but they had to do it on his FOREARM.
He was in the news a few years ago after the first part of the treatment worked. They used skin from his arm to grow him a new unit just above his left wrist.
But then he had to live with it hanging off his arm for SIX YEARS. First, there were scheduling mix-ups and staffing issues. Then the pandemic delayed it even longer.
But the good news is he finally had it grafted onto his crotch earlier this year and says he's finally whole again. It doesn't work like his old junk did, but there's a built-in pump, so he can inflate it when he needs to perform. (Here's a helpful graphic.)
To Malcolm's credit, he's kept a very good sense of humor about it. He says he didn't even mind when his friends made jokes.
There's a new documentary about him premiering tonight in the U.K. It's called "The Man with a Penis on His Arm".
