London: A 40-year-old man from Edinburgh has had his penis rebuilt using skin and fat from his arm.

Mohammed Abad's penis and one testicle were ripped off during a horror car accident when he was just six.

Abad, was playing in the snow with friends in Huddersfield in 1978 when he was accidentally pushed under a car and dragged for 600ft down a road.

Initially he was given just 12 hours to live, but he miraculously survived and spent the next 18 months in and out of hospital, the Sun reported.

At the time doctors built Abad a tube using skin from his leg so he could urinate, but his new "penis" was entirely sensationless and had no sexual function.

He later faced questions from relatives about why he hadn't settled down, married and had children.

But while he knew the truth about his inability to have kids, he revealed it was never really spoken about at home.

And it wasn't until two and a half years ago, when Abad met his someone, who is now his wife, that he finally decided he was going to try to do something about it.

He went along to see the doctors from Channel 4 show Embarrassing Bodies, who put him in touch with experts who could help.

And now he will at last have a brand new fully-functioning manhood thanks to a series of revolutionary operations.

Abad, has so far undergone the first of three ops he will need to fully rebuild his penis.

Incredibly during the first 11-hour procedure doctors discovered a testicle that had been pushed up inside his body during the accident.

Doctors will now look at whether the testicle is producing sperm. While Mo's next two ops will also see medics return sensation to his penis and fit a pump that allows him to become aroused.
