MALCOLM MacDonald became the first man in the world to have a new penis attached to his arm, after he lost his to a horrific blood infection.
After living with a penis on his arm for six years, the dad-of-two revealed earlier this year that he has finally had it fitted in its rightful place – here's a look at his incredible story.
Who is Malcolm MacDonald?
Malcolm MacDonald, 47, is a dad-of-two and a mechanic from Thetford, Norfolk.
In 2020, The Sun revealed how a nightmarish blood infection led to Malcolm's penis falling off one fateful day in 2014.
He told The Sun how he was left “completely gutted” when his manhood fell off, though his testicles remained intact.
Due to hospital delays and the Covid pandemic, Malcolm's £50,000 NHS-funded appendage had to stay attached to his arm for six years.

In 2022, Malcolm finally had some good news to share – his nightmare had been “put to rest” following surgery to attach the penis between his legs.
Malcolm's story was told in a Channel 4 documentary called The Man With A Penis On His Arm, which aired on May 3, 2022.
Why did Malcolm MacDonald have a penis on his arm?
Malcolm had suffered for years with an infection in his perineum but had no idea of what it would lead to.
The infection began to affect different parts of his body, turning his fingers, toes and eventually his penis black.

Malcolm recalled how one day his penis ''just dropped off on to the floor''.
Malcolm’s GP then told him about the “penis master”, Professor David Ralph, an expert in phallus construction at London’s University College Hospital.
Prof Ralph explained the arm-graft procedure, and told him it would take up to two years, which Malcolm was happy with.
Surgeons chose the arm for building the new penis due to its skin quality and sensation.
He was then delighted to get funding — as it was motivated by being able to go to the toilet properly rather than for sexual reasons.
Right-handed Malcolm then had a skin flap taken from his left arm and rolled to form a “penis”, with its own blood vessels and nerves.
Surgeons created a urethra and installed two tubes inflated with a hand-pump, allowing him to have a “mechanical” erection.
The shaft was then detached from his forearm, leaving the base, allowing it to dangle – it then could form naturally as skin and tissue.
After two years, as the doctors had said, it was finally ready to be “hung” in 2018.
However, due to a number of different reasons, the operation was delayed until 2022.
What has Malcolm MacDonald said?
Malcolm has said his nightmare has been “put to rest” following his long awaited surgery.
He said: “It was a nine-hour op.
"The first thing I did was look down and I was like, ‘Oh my days. They got it right this time’. I feel like a real man again.”
The penis was made out of flesh from Malcolm’s arm, which allows him to feel.
He will eventually have a pump in his scrotum to fill it with saline solution, allowing him to prepare it for sex.
Malcolm said: “This could be a turning point in my life.
