Cancer patient's leg kept alive by being attached to arm
from BBC News
Surgeons removed a man's tumor and rebuilt his body using leg muscles and tissue they had removed and attached to his arm to keep alive. The operation on Sunderland man Ian McGregor lasted 18 hours and is thought to be the first of its kind in the U.K. Surgeons in Newcastle took his calf, attached it to his arm and then used it to repair the site of the operation. The 59-year old, who is making a good recovery, said: "You just can't put into words what they did."
