Ananova: Man with two *****es loses wife
A German who persuaded doctors to give him a second ***** has lost his wife after he showed her the result.
Biker Michael Gruber, 40, lost his original ***** in a motorbike accident and doctors built him a second one using a mixture of skin, bone and other tissues from his own body.
The ***** worked so well that he was even able to father a child with his wife Bianca, 25, and their son Etienne was born last year.
But Gruber was still not happy and asked doctors to repeat the operation and build him a better organ, to which they agreed.
However, before removing the first ***** doctors said they needed to make sure the new tissue transplant was a success, and had to leave the first ***** in place.
Dr Markus Kuentscher, a plastic surgeon at Berlin's Accident Hospital, said: "We left the old one attached until the new one is properly supplied with blood."
But when Gruber showed his wife his double *****, she went home, packed her bags and left.
From his hospital bed he said: "I've got two *****es but no wife, but I am hoping when I get rid of one of the *****es I will get her back."
His testicles are intact and will be connected to what is actually his third ***** when doctors are happy the operation was a success.
His story was this week featured on a German TV documentary called The Last ***** Operation.
