Hey that's handy... in coming years he can hand it to girls & they can stomp on it... it'll save them the trouble of ripping out of his chest first.
OnyxCougar Monday Jul 14 01:26 PM
No, the ripping it out part is the best part! I know it's my favorite part of getting screwed over.

If Rho gets a kidney transplant, we could all play catch with the kidney at a future GTG.

Imagine all the Love that guy must have had in his huge heart! It's gargantuan! How did that fit inside him?
juju Monday Jul 14 03:17 PM
That is completely amazing.

Look at the fatty deposits surrounding it... I don't think that's necessarily normal. I used to work at a butcher shop and (granted, I'm not really an expert in HUMAN hearts... actually I'm not really an expert in any hearts, I guess) you don't usually see that much white stuff around the heart of a young animal.

I dunno; I seem to remember quite a bit of fat around mammal hearts that I've dissected. Of course, I'm no heart expert either.

I wonder if they carry that philosophy forward to other kinds of operations. It would make sex changes interesting.

Maggie, what exactly was done with your penis? I know they have to move the urethra to its new spot, but what happens to the penis itself?

They make the outie an innie don't they?

big hearted kid.
It must have been hard to breathe with a heart that big. There's only so much room in the rib cage.

Welcome to the Cellar, Hampor. You mean every dozen years another heart? Damn that could get annoying and expensive. Most insurance has a lifetime total benefit of a million or something.
elSicomoro Thursday Jul 17 08:32 PM
From my understanding, Hampor is right. The times can vary, but a family friend was given 10 years with his new heart. He's currently had it for 16 and is in great shape.

Outties are indeed turned into innies. Watched an operation done once (kinda that sick curiosity you get from buzzing around places like rotten.com) and it's basically what you'd think. They skin the member, dig a hole, and line the hole with the skin. The leftovers are incinerated with the rest of the biological waste.
