Carl Jones is a diabetic dad with four kidneys and three pancreases.He lives a healthy life with what is right to be termed as abnormal .
Jones had a transplant when his original organs failed and needed a second operation when the replacements stopped working four years later.He talked to the Sun about her condition recently.
He says that each time, surgeons opted not to remove what was already there – to help his body cope with the trauma.
‘It’s mad having all that inside me – I’ve got enough organs for a small family,’ the 32-year-old said.
“I have four kidneys inside me and three pancreases.
‘The only bad thing is it makes it hard for me to lose weight because I’ve got all that in the front of my stomach.’
Mr Jones, of Carmarthen, South Wales, was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes as a child.
He spent hundreds of hours on a dialysis machine before his first kidney and pancreas transplant in 2004.
The van driver added: ‘I can only give all my thanks to the people who donated their organs. I may have four kidneys and three pancreases but they have all the heart.’
