AN accident victim who became the first person to have a PENIS transplant has had it removed because of psychological problems.
The 44-year-old man was given the 4in manhood taken from a brain-dead patient half his age.
Surgeons in Guangzhou, China, said it had a rich blood supply and he was able to pass water through it ten days after the complex 15-hour op.
But despite the success doctors had to remove the organ after just 14 days due to “a severe psychological problem with the recipient and his wife”.
Transplant expert Prof Andrew George, of Imperial College London, said: “It’s not clear if the patient would have been able to have sex with it.”
