 Skin from Arm Used to Rebuild Lost Penis in 40-year Old Man

A bad car accident left Mohammed Abad's penis and testicle severely damaged when he was just 6 years old.

He was so critically ill, that his survival itself was a big question mark. At that time, doctors used skin from his leg and made a tube so that he could pass urine. But, this new penis had no sensation and obviously could not function as a sex organ.


He was often asked questions as to why he did not settle down. His parents were fully aware of the situation but such things were not discussed openly.

Two years ago when he decided to get married and met the woman of his dreams, he felt he needed to do something to get this problem remedied. He contacted 'embarrassing bodies', to seek help from experts for complex problems such as his.

Thanks to many path breaking surgeries, his dream of having a properly functioning penis will soon be true. He has undergone three surgeries so far to rebuild his penis. The next two surgeries will be aimed at returning the sensation to his penis by fitting a pump that can help him become aroused.

Mohammed indeed owes a lot to the progress in medical science that could give him a solution to a complex problem in order to boost his quality of life.
