A little boy was involved in an accident that left him without his penis and one testicle. Two years ago, doctors took skin from the man’s arm and began reconstructing a penis.
Britain’s Mohammed Abad at the age of six, was playing outside in the snow with his friends when he was accidently pushed under a speeding car and dragged 600 feet. Abad was given only 12 hours to live due to the extensive and life threatening injuries. The other injuries the little boy had were a ripped off penis and losing one of his testicles.
At the time of the accident, while Abad was recovering in the hospital, doctors removed skin from his leg to make a tube that could be inserted into the bladder so he would be able to urinate. He would be in and out of the hospital for the next 18 months.
Two years ago, Mohammad Abad, 40, met his wife and knew in that moment he wanted to pursue the possibility of having a new penis made for him. Abad contacted the U.K. television show “Embarrassing Bodies.”
They put him in contact with medical experts in that field. The doctors removed skin from his arm to rebuild the penis.
After three operations, Mohammed Abad is closing in on the day he will have a fully functioning penis.
The older he got, Abad stated that he began getting questioned by his family about why he still hadn’t settled down and got married and started a family.
Appearing on ITV1’s This Morning Today, Mohammad Abad stated, “My parents never sat me down from a young age and said ‘when you were young you had an accident and we were told that you can’t have kids.’ I’ve never been told that. I’ve had to find that out for myself.”
Two and a half years later when Abad met his now wife, he finally came to the decision that he was ready to do something about it.
The procedure to rebuild his penis will take three surgeries. While they were performing the first surgery, which lasted 11 hours, doctors discovered that Abad had a testicle pushed up inside.
Doctor’s will perform tests to see if the testicle is producing sperm. The remaining two operations will allow doctors to see if Mohammad Abad was having any feelings, or sensation in the penis. They will also fit him with a penis pump that will allow him to become aroused and get an erection.
