October 10, 2006: Guy's arm attached to his groin



In one of those "it's going around" items, Neatorama got this from Spluch which got it from here which probably got it from here.

Israel Sarrio had a problem. His arm was torn off in a car accident in Spain. Doctors tried to re-attach the arm, but there was a problem... the stump developed an infection.

There was no choice but to remove the arm, but they decided to do a groundbreaking, first time ever surgery, where they would attach his arm to arteries in his groin in order to keep it alive while the infection in the stump could be treated.

For nine days he stayed in this condition, until the infection cleared up and the docs were able to successfully reattach the arm. At the time they figured he'd be able to use it and everything, although with less mobility in the fingers. There hasn't been an update on his story in two years, but somehow the photo has made it out to the net and so here it is.

I can understand the blood flow but what about the nerves? Did the arm just move into a single... ummm... priapic position from time-to-time?

Brings a whole new meaning to "fingerbang".

Now he can finally scratch whenever he needs to and nobody will notice.

I wonder if he's into "fisting".

Brings a whole new meaning to "Shaking hands with Mr. Happy."

etc etc.

Read the title and my post was instantly:

"Duh!"

You meant the *other* end of his arm, though. Ok, that's news.

All I can say is that it's lucky they decided to stitch the arm on with the hand facing down next to his knee. If it was stitched in the other direction he'd have a continuous smile on his face. It could even possibly set a trend and guys would be asking for it.

I think this is the "after" shot, where the doctor is examining the patient's arm after it has been reattached and has had a chance to heal for a while.

If I ever had my weener severed in a car accident, I'd want them to attach it to my hand.
