A man who threw his severed penis in the bin was in such turmoil that he downed 18 pints a day to cope with his sudden loss.
Malcolm Macdonald, 47, had to live with a penis built on his arms for seven years after he was made homeless and developed a long-term perineum infection.
The dad initially suffered from the infection in his scrotum and anus but it quickly spiralled into sepsis which led his penis, fingers and toes to turn black.
Malcolm said he was "completely gutted" when his manhood had tragically dropped off, while his testicles remained intact in 2014.
Doctors reconstructed him a new member the following year, but due to the lack of oxygen, it had to temporarily be attached to his arm.
He has given an update about his bizarre journey in a new Channel 4 documentary and has spoken about what it is like to finally have his penis back in its rightful place.
"My toes started going black, my penis started going black," he explained. "I went to the toilet and it fell off."
Malcolm said losing his penis made him feel like he was less of a man, which resulted in him becoming a recluse, reports The Sun.
The 47-year-old said he would drown his sorrows from the moment that he woke up and began drinking in the morning until he hit around 18 pints a day.
He previously said: "Because I had been through the devastation of knowing I was going to lose it, I just picked it up and put it in the bin."

Speaking about what it was like to live with a penis on his arm, he said: "I slap myself in the eye with it, it's a dead weight, when you cuddle your nan at Christmas, you hit her in the eye.
"I went to Waitrose, there was an old lady that needed some help, it fell out of the bandage and fell out on her head, I could have given her a heart attack mate.
"When I'm cooking, it burns, I can't use the back hob. Of course I feel like less of a man, I ain't got a penis, I'm not a man, am I?"
Following years of delays to his surgery and system errors made during the pandemic, Malcolm eventually had a gruelling operation to replace his penis.
He added: "The first thing I did was look down and I was like, 'Oh my days. They got it right this time'. I feel like a real man again."
