Malcolm MacDonald, 45, a father of two children suffered a horrific infection in his perineum that turned his fingers, toes, and manhood black. In the end, his penis fell off but he even got an extra 2 inches that built on his arm.
“When I saw my penis go black I was beside myself. It was like a horror film. I was in a complete panic. I knew deep down it was gone and I was going to lose it,” he said.
Malcolm left “completely gutted” when one day his manhood fell off in 2014, though his testicles remained intact.
“Because I had been through the devastation of knowing I was going to lose it, I just picked it up and put it in the bin,” MacDonald continued.
“For two years after losing my penis I felt a shadow of a man. My life fell apart because I had no self-confidence. I drank too much. I didn’t see family and friends — I just didn’t want to have to face up to it,” he said.
Due to this, he started drinking heavily. Later he heard about “penis master” — Professor David Ralph of London’s University College Hospital from his doctor.
Ralph said he could perform an arm-graft procedure, which would take up to two years.
Fortunately, he received funding for the procedure because it would eventually allow him to urinate properly – not just perform sexually, according to the report.
He decided to request an extra two inches on the $65,000 appendage.
“When I saw it on my arm for the first time I was so, so proud. After everything I had been through it didn’t feel weird at all — it was just a part of me,” he said.
He and his friends named his designer penis ‘jimmy’.
“People ask me about it when they see me in the pub, and of course people make jokes. But I get it. It’s not every day you see a man with a penis on his arm. Of course I see the funny side. I have to. I don’t have any other option.
Due to a series of missed appointments, scheduling problems, staff shortages at the hospital and, finally, the coronavirus pandemic the new penis has still not been attached four years after the procedure.
“Then they canceled again because of the coronavirus. It feels like I’m cursed sometime,” he said, adding that he hopes to have it finally grafted between his legs by the end of this year.
“I am determined this penis will be ultimately used for what it was built for,” he said.
