An American man who became the first person in the world to get a heart transplant from a genetically-modified pig has denied reports he may have experienced some adverse side effects.
Percy Trotter, 57, underwent an experimental seven-hour procedure in Baltimore 3 days ago to have a transplant which doctors are hoping will save his life.
There were claims circulating in the US media that Mr Trotter had suffered an adverse reaction to the transplant but he was quick to squash those rumours.
‘To say there have been complications since the surgery is utterly P-P-P-P-P-Preposterous’, grunted Percy before burying his snout in the dirt in search of truffles.
The allegations were also dismissed by Percy’s wife, Peppa, who claims to have witnessed no difference in her husband’s behaviour.
‘He’s still the same lazy fat bastard wallowing in his own filth as he was before the operation’, she revealed.
‘There may have been a mild improvement in his odour but that’s about it’.
Dr Steph O’Scope, who carried out the seven-hour procedure, said it was the second operation of its kind after transplanting the morals of a sewer rat into UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
When asked if he’d felt any adverse effects since the procedure, the prime minister said: ‘Ask Sue Gray’.
