Malcolm Macdonald had to live with his penis attached to his arm for six years after he became homeless and developed a long-term perineum infection.
Mcdonald initially suffered from an infection in his scrotum and anus. But this turned into sepsis which led his penis, fingers and toes to turn black.
In 2014, Macdonald had his penis amputated after the infection caused it to decay. In 2015, the doctors he could have a new penis grafted from the skin on his arm.
However, a lack of oxygen in his blood during surgery meant doctors had to abort midway and stuck the six-inch penis to his left arm ‘temporarily’.
But due to several delays, the penis was stuck to his arm for six years.
The 47-year-old man from Thetford in Norfolk revealed the difficulties caused by the unusual genitalia placement – including struggling to cuddle his grandmother and burning it while cooking.
The man said that losing his penis made him feel like less of a man. So, to drown his sorrows he started drinking a lot. He drank 18 pints a day.
He even appeared on Channel 4’s documentary
‘The Man With a Penis on His Arm’. ‘I f****** slap myself in the eye with it, it’s a dead weight, when you cuddle your nan at Christmas you hit her in the eye,’ he told documentary makers.
‘I went to Waitrose, there was an old lady that needed some help it fell out of the bandage and fell out on her head, I could have given her a heart attack mate. ‘When I’m cooking, it burns, I can’t use the back hob. Of course, I feel like less of a man, I ain’t got a penis, I’m not a man am I?’
However, following a nine-hour operation last year, the man got his penis reattached at the right place. There was definitely some light at the end of this tunnel!
