If I was that man then I would not trust the doctors because its the first hand transplant ever in the uk and they would not know what will happen.

It's really fancinating to see that a man can have another man's hand, put on his body! I mean how can then connect all the nerves, so Mark's Brain could tell the hand to grasp or wiggle his fingers! It's mind Boggling! Oink

That is a bit gross but at least he was brave enough to be the first person to have a hand-transplant! At least he got a new hand and had a great recovery! :)
