Half man's recovery stuns surgeons

Quote:
A Chinese man, who had half of his body amputated after being run over by a truck, has amazed surgeons with his recovery.



Peng Shuilin, 37, spent nearly two years in hospital in Shenzhen, southern China, undergoing a series of operations to re-route nearly every major organ or system inside his body.

Now Peng - who opened his own cut-price supermarket called the Half Man-Half Price Store - has survived so well he's being used as a role model for other amputees.

At just 2ft 7ins tall, he gets around in a wheelchair and gives lectures on recovering from disability.

"We've just given him a check up and he is fitter than most men his age. He is amazing and the only person in the world to survive having so much of his body amputated," said Bujie Hospital vice president Lin Liu.

"He had good care but his secret is his cheerfulness - nothing ever gets him down," he added.

Peng Shuilin has also been elated lately due to only having to pay half price for travel expenses. "I only half a luggage!"

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

i'd assume he has a port for a colostomy bag somewhere.

Man I have to say, I have seen more than my fair share of disturbing and violent videos on the internet in t my years. But this one is just too much for me. I had to stop watching about 30 seconds in when he starts tugging at his stomach...or what was left of it.

I hope he's surrounded every day by people who love him.
