Bristol Man Has Toe For A Thumb

by | 15th, September 2011

BRISTOL man James Byrne has a big toe stitched onto his hand.

He cut off his thumb in an accident while sawing wood.

Attempts to reattach the thumb failed. But he really needed a thumb to work as paver.

So. Plastic surgeons at Frenchay Hospital transplanted his left big toe to his hand.

The 29-year-old says he feels “really really lucky”.

Of course, what we want to know is where he got the toe from – and what can be used to replace it..?
