The patient’s skin is still perfect after a skin transplant from a stranger.
But she’s concerned about her health because her skin has already been affected by the infection.
“I’m not happy that my skin’s not perfect,” she said.
“So, I’m not even happy with it.”
A doctor told the patient that the transplant was an important milestone in her recovery.
“She said ‘it’s just a matter of time’, and then, she was like ‘that’s not a problem.
I’m still doing great’,” the patient said.
It was an emotional moment for the woman and her family.
“She’s in shock,” said her sister.
“It was really emotional.
The whole family’s heart sank when she said that.”
She said her skin had recovered to the point where it was still “pretty normal”.
“I just felt like I’m a little bit of a miracle.
It’s a miracle.”
The patient said her body had been affected before, but had only been able to cope with a few infections.
The patient has now been able the skin to “look like it was before”.
But her family still wants to get her an operation that will remove the infection, so she can feel comfortable again.
She wants to thank the transplant team and the doctors for the positive results, but also wants to “say thank you” to the community for its support.
