His hair — curly and the colour of Hobnobs — is what I expected. His body — slim and clad in a red tartan shirt — is, too. He wiggles his fingers at me, I wiggle mine back as I approach. I tug at my skirt, ruffle my hair. I hope he likes what he sees. I certainly do. Here, in real life, sitting on a high stool, a half-drunk pint in front of him, I see he matches all of them. And then… he grins. There, where his two front teeth should be, is a pink gummy ridge. A black void stretching right back into his mouth.
I think back to those pictures: in all of them his mouth was wedged shut. I want to spin on my heel, leave right there and then. Three years ago I tripped… and lost my leg. No one expects something so cataclysmic to happen from something so small.

Shreya Siddanagowder has recovered much mobility with her new hands. Now though, not only have her new hands become more slender, they have also changed colour to match her skin tone, mystifying the doctors who carried out the rare hour transplant. She has even started wearing jewellery and nail varnish. Siddanagowder’s life was turned upside down in when, aged 18, she was involved in a bus accident that crushed both her arms.
Only successful hand transplants have taken place worldwide — including nine in India — since the first in the United States in on a man whose left lower limb had been blown off by a firework. The biggest problem was finding a donor. For cultural reasons, Indian families are often reluctant for the hands of their loved ones to be made available after their death. As a result, those seeking a transplant “are so desperate that they don’t mind if the hands are from a different gender”, Iyer, a specialist in reconstructive surgery, told AFP.
Eventually, the hospital obtained a pair of hands from a man in August Siddanagowder and her family accepted. The donor hands were first attached by the bones before the tendons, blood vessels and skin were painstakingly stitched together. After the transplant, she had to undergo more than a year of physiotherapy for her body and brain to get used to the new hands and obtain mobility and sensation.
