Doctors Incredibly Put Man's Hand In Abdomen To Save His Hand From Amputation

"Doctors spend much of their lives to learn about the best ways to cure the sick, or to save lives."

People say there are miracles, but what's more valid is that miracles are on us, humans. If we are willing to do the best ways to help others, to be part of positive change, or to be 'human' , we can get over challenges and conflicts. No matter how hard things are, we can find a way.

This story tells us that for every problem, there is a solution. More so, for every sickness, there is the best cure. 

Putting this in context, a machine operator in Brazil faced a tremendous challenge that almost made his hand amputated. Good thing, experienced, well-versed and 'human' doctors are there to follow their oath and serve at the maximum.

The hands will have to stay for more than a month to let the hands develop tissues to make up for the scrapped skins. With this, his hand's muscles and tendons would be hidden safely.

The event for the patient was very fresh and traumatic.

Carlos did not expect that the cure would look like this. But if I'm in his situation, I'd rather choose this fate than to lose my hand forever.

Doctors advised him to be extra gentle.

It may feel so weird to feel some moving hands inside his tummy, but to hasten the healing process, he is requested to keep these hands from harsh movements. It was promised that his damaged hands can only do pincer movements (writing using a pencil, etc.)

Required check-up.
