Hell yeah, getting a dick today (not the actual patient)

Good news for the dickless: a U.S. veteran who lost his genitals from a blast in Afghanistan has successfully received the world's most extensive penis transplant. The patient is expected to recover urinary and, eventually, sexual function. And despite hours of research, I am unable to confirm if it's bigger than his last one.

An elite team of nine plastic surgeons and two urological surgeons took part in the 14-hour operation. Doctors sometimes reconstruct the form of a penis from a patient's own skin, usually to treat congenital abnormalities or during transgender surgery, but that requires using implants to achieve erection. Those are typically ugly-as-fuck zombie dicks, and I don't recommend searching for pics of them.

For a functional penis transplant, surgeons have to connect tiny nerves and blood vessels, and patients face some serious risks, including rejection of the tissue and side effects from anti-rejection drugs that must be taken for life.

A deceased donor provided the entire penis, scrotum (without testicles), and partial abdominal wall. Rumor has it the donor was a porn star, but I started that rumor. Below is a demonstrative video of the procedure, a little graphic, though, so be warned.
