I think I want a cadaver arm transplant. Good idea or not?

I'm so tired of the excruciating pain I've been having in my left arm & elbow, I'm seriously thinking about getting it amputated and having a cadaver arm transplant.

But what if I get like a dead criminal's arm and start shoplifting?

Treesa's already said if I get it done not to ever touch or hold her with it.

THEEK!, Indeed!

What if your new arm takes over when you fall asleep and you go out and murder people because you are being controlled by your serial killer possesed arm? But you don't know it's doing it. Then you hear about all these murders in your area and that the police are getting close to finding the killer. Then you find out that it is indeed your arm that is taking over during the night and killing people. You get arrested by the cops and are convicted of multiple murders with aboslutely no way to prove your innocence because they think you are crazy. And all because you were a wuss and couldn't take the pain of aging. Does it sound like a good idea now??

I was thinking that same thing. It's called Body Parts and the guy gets the arm of a serial killer and goes nuts. It's actually pretty good and it's out on DVD now.

If you'd have thought of all this sooner you could have made a few bucks.

You might end up like this guy, especially if you can't get amorous with your SO any more!

Have 'em put the new arm underneath your existing one. It'll help improve your ski-boxing.

Just make sure it comes from an actual dead guy.

When Lindsey McDonald got an arm transplant, the guy he got it from wasn't dead, and the arm kept trying to kill him. So if you get it done, make sure Wolfram and Hart aren't involved in any way.

Sounds like you have Mouse Elbow I had to have surgery to fix mine. Best advice: limit your surfing time and use ice packs to reduce the inflamation.

I know it hurts like hell. Good luck.

If you do, get yourself a second right arm on your left shoulder. There are disadvantages, sure, but think of the advantages! You'll be able to shake hands with two people at the same time. You could run for governor! You can salute with both arms. You'll be ambidextrous. You can buy irregular sets of gloves at a great discount. You'll be more in tune with the vast right wing conspiracy. You'll have a spare for anything you'll give your right arm for.

Mrs. Danger says that if you're going to ditch the arm anyway, you should replace it with an elephant's trunk. It's so much more versatile.

TEK, you go through life with the arms you have, not the arms you want.
