Iraq Vet Receives Double Arm Transplant
He was the first soldier to survive the loss of all four limbs in Iraq, and now he’s the recipient of a cutting-edge double-arm transplant.
Brendan will speak Tuesday in Baltimore about the mind-boggling procedure alongside the doctors who pulled it off. But the tough-as-nails soldier has already chronicled his recovery on Twitter.
“Ohh yeah today has been one month since my surgery and they already move a little,” he wrote of his new limbs on Jan. 18.
“It’s been frustrating because I have no function out of my hands yet (so) its been tough but I’ve been thru worse,” he wrote five days later.
