WARSAW---Poland s first face transplant patient
was discharged from the hospital yesterday, speaking
with some effort at a press conference just 11 weeks
after the extensive surgery that saved his life.
The 33-year-old man said he owes his doctors
"everything" following a skin-and-bone transplant
on May 15, three weeks after losing his nose, upper
jaw and cheeks in an accident at the brick factory
where he worked. Doctors say it was the world s
fastest time frame for such an operation.
Doctors who performed the transplant at the Cancer
Center and Institute of Oncology in Gliwice, in south-
ern Poland, said the rehabilitation is proceeding faster
than expected thanks to the "courage and determi-
nation" of the patient, identified only as Grzegorz,
who cooperated in the rehabilitation and never lost
faith in the good outcome.
He can breathe on his own, see, eat, taste and
speak, although his speech is hard to understand
because the face muscles still need to regain mobility.
He has the sensation of pins and needles in his cheeks,
which is a sign of the severed nerves healing, doctors
said. When muscle mobility is achieved through
intensive exercise, he will need surgery on his right
eyelid, which remains motionless. At the news con-
ference, his eyes were hidden behind sunglasses.
A pressure sore, originating from time Grzegorz
spent at another hospital, still needs to heal, doctors
said. The surgery reconstructed the area around the
eyes, nose, jaw and palate and other facial areas, with
the transplant running from above his right eye,
under his left eye and around his face to his neck.
He will need to avoid large gatherings and sick
people to protect against infection. He will take med-
ication for the rest of his life, the anesthesiologist,
Dr Sebastian Giebel, told the news conference. Potted
plants, rugs and the man s dog had to be removed
from his home because they were potential sources
of infection, he said.
Grzegorz will be able to resume work, though he
will have to avoid working in agriculture, where he
could catch fungi infections from the soil, said Dr
Adam Maciejewski, who led the 27-hour operation.
He was injured on April 23 at a concrete brick fac-
tory near the southwestern city of Wroclaw, while
cleaning a packaging machine. It tore off most of his
face, including the upper jaw. An attempt to reattach
his own face failed, leaving an area close to the brain
exposed to infections.
The damage was too extensive for doctors to tem-
porarily seal the wound, and an urgent transplant
was the only way to save the man s life.
More than two dozen transplants of the face or
parts of the face have been performed around the
patient goes home
