Why or why are stories like this being promoted? How is it possible that amputations are suddenly in “vogue” with the media? Who or what has a fetish with missing limbs? This story is so silly I can hardly beLIEve anyone would bother with it, but here it is.
Joe Pleban is putting his best foot forward.
The 23-year-old Virginia man only has one left – the right one – after he decided to amputate the left one rather than continue suffering from the rare disease that filled his ankle with benign tumours, ABC News reported. Surgery and radiation had temporarily stopped the tumours but had given him arthritis, which made it difficult to walk without crutches or a cane.
I think I’d inject heroin before cutting off any body part. Who writes this crap? (I think we know…)
