Read his story:
39-year-old security guard, Andrew Wardle, was truly born�without a penis.
His mum, who was just 17 at the time, was unable to cope and made the painful decision to give him up for adoption.
Andrew was eventually taken in by a loving couple from Wales�and luckily for him today, he’s about�to become one of the first men in the world to be given�an�entirely new penis built from his own arm.
Andrew�was born with an ectopic bladder, meaning it formed on the outside of his body. He had testicles�but he did not have a penis at all.
And, while he had a successful operation as a child to move his bladder to where it should be, his lack of manhood remained.
Despite his lack of penis, Mr Wardle claims he has slept with�more than 100 ladies!
‘Some were one-night stands, some long-term relationships. I’ve told 20 per cent of them the truth,’ he said.
His first girlfriend was understanding when he explained the situation to her and they dated for four years before eventually splitting because she ‘wanted to experience things I was unable to do’.
Two years ago though, Andrew�hit rock bottom and tried to kill himself with an overdose of pills. But after confessing he was at his lowest to his sister Michelle Bailey, he sought help.
He went to his childhood doctor and was told there had been advances in surgery and that hope could be in sight. And after consulting a specialist at University College London, Mr Wardle was stunned and delighted when surgeons agreed to operate.
Surgeons there�agreed to do a complicated three-part operation on him, involving the transfer of skin from his forearm. They�plan to use a large flap of skin with its blood vessels and nerves and fold it into a tube before grafting it into the pubic area.
After healing, Mr Wardle will be fitted with a pump-operated implant to make passing urine � and sex � possible.
Speaking to The Sun, Mr Wardle said: ‘I never thought this day would come and I still can’t believe it is possible for me to actually have a fully functioning penis. If it’s a success, I can finally start living like a normal man.
‘Things like having sex and starting a family, something which so many people take for granted, could actually become a possibility.’
He plans to write a book about his ordeal and train as a counsellor.
