45-year-old Andrew Wardle from Manchester was born with a rare condition called bladder exstrophy. Bladder exstrophy is a birth defect in which the bladder develops outside the body and left Wardle without a penis.
Over the past few years, Wardle has been undergoing procedures at University College Hospital London to surgically implant a penis. His procedures come at the hefty cost of £50,000 (~$58,000). The surgery took ten hours and used nerves from his legs and skin from his arm.
Wardle had to wait a grueling six weeks before he could take his new ‘bionic penis’ for a test drive. Luckily for him, he recently broke his 45-year dry spell with his 28-year-old girlfriend, Fedra Fabian.
