Question of the Day
BOSTON (AP) - A Connecticut woman who underwent a full face transplant after an attack by a chimpanzee wants to eat hamburgers and pizza again.
Officials at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston say they performed the transplant on Charla Nash late last month.
Pohmahac says Nash will slowly regain facial functions over the next six to nine months.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
Doctors at a Boston hospital have performed a full face transplant on the Connecticut woman who was mauled and blinded two years ago by her friend’s pet chimpanzee.
“She developed pneumonia, she had kidney failure, she had the circulation issue with the hands,” Orr said. “She’s been under, so to speak, since this whole thing began, and now she’s just starting to wake up.”
The donor can be as much as 20 years younger or up to 10 years older than the recipient and must have the same blood type and similar skin color and texture.
“She’s not aware of the hands, that she lost them,” he said. “She’s still groggy. She’s acknowledging with a nod that someone is there, but she still has pneumonia issues. The kidneys are back working, but she isn’t aware of too much yet.”
