These photos are shocking. However, what the doctors did to this man saved his life and his hand!
Meet Frank who is 87 years of age. The guy had a life, but he was not ready yet to retire. He is a DIY kind of fellow and got busy fixing his car at the garage. He checked the brakes when this horrible accident took place.
The palm of his hand got stuck in the hot brake disc. By the time he managed to free it, the palm burnt to a crisp. Doctors had to cut off one of his fingers. His entire palm was sore and inflamed. Medics believed they would have to remove it all together.
No traditional treatment method or medicine worked for the poor man. The skin tissues rotted and died. Then Anthony Echo came to the scene and offered to do something extreme. This doctor suggested the old man to sew his hand into his own belly.
This way the damaged tissues would get constant blood flow in them and the chance to heal up. For the three upcoming weeks, the fellow’s hand was sewn into his belly. And it worked! The palm started to heal up, and the threat of amputation passed. Here is what Frank says about such a treatment:
“I am so grateful to the doctors, and especially to Mr. Echo. They helped me to preserve my hand. All these weeks I had to deal with very controversial feelings. However, when I saw the results, I could not believe my own eyes! The outcome surpasses all my expectations!”
