Being struck down by illness can be life-altering and debilitating.
For a man, having a penis on his arm meant he had to live with it for seven years.
After being left homeless, Malcolm Macdonald developed a long-term perineal infection.
This first happened between his scrotum and anus, but soon escalated into sepsis, causing his penis, fingers, and toes to turn black.
He was “completely gutted” when his manhood fell off on a fateful day in 2014, although his testicles remained intact.
But he finally has a newly constructed penis attached back to its natural home and has opened up about his experience in a new Channel 4 documentary.
He said: “My toes turned black, my penis turned black. I went to the toilet and it fell off.”
The 47-year-old previously said: “Because I had gone through the devastation of knowing I was going to lose it, I just picked it up and threw it in the bin.”
Malcolm said it made him feel like a shadow of a man and became a recluse as a result.
He explained in detail how we would start drinking every morning and could set back about 18 pints a day.

Malcolm’s GP told him about the “penis master”, Professor David Ralph, an expert in phallus construction at London’s University College Hospital.
Surgeons designed and created a new penis, which they then transplanted onto his arm, a site chosen for the quality and feel of his skin.
But Malcolm stressed how difficult it had been living with the member in such a visible place.
“I smack myself in the eye with it, it’s a dead weight, if you cuddle your grandma at Christmas you’ll hit her in the eye.
“I went to Waitrose there was an old lady who needed help she fell out of the bandage and fell on her head I could have given her a heart attack mate.
“When I cook it burns, I can’t use the back burner. Of course I feel less like a man, I don’t have a penis, I’m not a man, am I?”
After years of delays in his surgery due to planning errors and the pandemic, Malcolm has now secured his penis in the right place.
He endured a nine-hour operation and said he felt better immediately.
“The first thing I did was look down and I was like, ‘Oh my God. They got it right this time.’ I feel like a real man again.”
Malcolm said on the show that aired last night that this could be a turning point in his life
“My life hasn’t been too good so far, but things can only go bad for so long, right?
“Can you imagine six years of your life with a penis swinging on your arm? It was a nightmare but now he’s gone — the little bastard,” he added.
