Today, after recently having had surgery, I Iearnt that some extra tissue was needed to cover up the hole in the roof of my mouth. Where did they get this tissue? From a dead person. I now have the flesh of a dead person in my mouth, which by the way is now infected. FML

It's graft tissue that's strerilized and closes a joke that probably went into your sinus. the only other choice probably would have been to cut bone out of your own hip to fill the whole. you seriously would not have liked that option.

thank you. learnt is no good... who cares. the dead tissue is sterile. be thankful you get to wake up every morning unlike the generous dead person who donated their body...

"Learnt" is acceptable in some parts of the world.

Maybe you should learn to spell "are" before attacking someone else's grammar.

The infection isn't because of the graft. it's because the human mouth contains more bacteria than any other body area.
Also, what does Zombie taste like? this will be vital information once the apocalypse hits.

Why would you complain? She need a skin graft to complete her surgery. It was part of the procedure. They did everything exactly the way they were supposed to.

Fail for the people who decided to use a dead guys skin...

Win for the dead guy! I guess he/she will be a part of this world long after their death... anyone for a game of Left 4 Dead?


When bored and reading an FML like this, one's mind tends to wander.. What if they replaced every inch of his skin with a dead persons slowly over a period of years.. Would he be a zombie? Minus the bath salts, of course.


So just because it is gross, it's bad? what about all those people in WWII who- *goes into hourlong rant*. And that is why i'm afraid of bananas. see how you shouldn't judge people on apperance?

By  NeonWar__  |  0 did they manage that? I thought the flesh had to be living and from the person? otherwise it won't accept it? I know the whole organ transplant works, but isn't muscle and flesh different?

muscle is technically an organ along with skin so it's totally possible to use some from a dead body as long as it's kept right.

OP, stuff doesn't get infected unless you didn't clean or treat it right. YDI

fake docs can't do skin transplants using anyone elses skin but yr own usually from yr bum cause it's basicly lard, skin and muscle. the sole reason y they don't do this is because of the extreamly high chance of the body rejecting the new tissue


b4 u go on teh internets typin stuf-- learn to spell correctly. by the way, lard is pig fat. Not sure why that would be in your butt. And butt cartilage transplants are only really used with implants, not transplants.
