He struggled with depression for nearly four years before undergoing the surgery last week.

Doctors revealed that they were able to route his existing nerves into the donor hands, adding that he will soon be able to do small things once again. Speaking out on the surgery, Edwards said "I feel fantastic. I'm feeling very blessed and thankful for having a new pair of hands."
