IamA Face Transplant Recipient AMA!
DailyMail ran a story based off this AmA........ If i wanted media attention, I'd get a hole of the media my self, for fucks sake.
Edit 6/19 I'm going to do some Father's day activities with my kids but I will be back.
Have I missed anyone's questions so far? If I have let me know or re-ask and I will get to it. I hope all you wonderful dad's are enjoying your day with the kiddos!
I also added in why I needed a face transplant as I have ben asked that many times.
Edit- added a public album and links to other things and my old AMA
My name is Mitch Hunter, I did an AMA a few years back and decided to update my fellow redditors on my progress. I have healed quite well over the last few years and most people can hardly tell I even had a face transplant.
All the sensation in my face is back 100% and it feels awesome! I have recently been on local news in many cities, BBC Live Radio, and Good Morning Britain.
I could type forever but this is an AmA so ask away and like last time, I will answer every question you have!
Since I've been asked "why did you need a face transplant, I'll clear that up with this edit.
I was in a car accident that involved a truck hitting a utility pole. The driver got out shut the door and pretty much left his girlfriend and I in the truck for dead. We eventually got out and from I was told by her and eye witnesses, she was struck by one of the downed power lines. I got her off the downed line immediately, then it struck and grounded me. 10,000 volts 7 amps for about 5 mins. It entered my left leg, exited my right hand, and face. I also suffered a few major and minor blowouts, one on my left chest above my heart, left shoulder, and down the left arm. I had full thickness burns (past third degree) on the majority of my face, I have a BKA (below knee amputation) on the left leg, and I lost two fingers on the right hand (ring and pinkie). I was in the hospital two and a half months after the accident and in and out for four more years. I've had 70-80 surgeries on my face and hand, the majority on my face. Add about 10-15 more on my leg, I never got the records on my leg, so that's more of a guess. The accident was 11/30/01.
