According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, Felix Gritarsson, 49, had his arms amputated in 1998 after a strong electric current while he was at work in Iceland.
After spending years without arms, the man managed to convince a surgeon in France to perform a complex operation to transplant two shoulders and arms, in a 15-hour medical intervention.
The surgery was performed in January 2021, and doctors say that they are amazed by the positive result, because the man can now brush and brush his teeth, and can throw a ball to his dog, and he can also hug his children and grandchildren.
Felix was able to hold his daughter for the first time in years because he was injured in the accident when she was only three months old.
The recovering man said that “there are not enough words to describe what I was feeling when I saw my children crying, but I am helpless and unable to carry them.”
Today, Felix is happy with his ability to embrace his wife and children, and he is also overjoyed because he has become a person with hands and arms that move them as he used to do in his childhood.
“Life becomes very complicated when a person loses his hands, even scratching the head or nose is difficult, but I can do it now,” Felix explains.
Felix confirms that he goes to the club to exercise, but he does not carry any significant weight, while his condition continues to improve day after day, “When I put my hand in the sink today, I immediately feel the heat.”
Felix spent months trying to make hand movements in the hope that they would respond to him, then gradually recovered at a later time until he was happy with his ability to do several things.
Last April, Felix grabbed a mobile phone for the first time in his life, while he relied on touching the screen of the device with his nose before performing the operation, while his condition is still gradually improving.
