The first face transplant lady’s dog tried to revive her from her drug suicide attempt by chewing off her face???
Face transplant patient may have troubles
PARIS, June 25 (UPI) — Isabelle Dinoire, the French woman who a year ago was attacked by her Labrador and subsequently received a face transplant, may be living a troubled life.
About a year after Dinoire, 38, underwent the historic surgery, she has shocked friends and family by buying another dog, the Daily Mail reported. Some hailed it as a miracle, but the Mail reports that her friends are worried about her irrational behavior.
Friends also said Dinoire spends nearly all her time in her flat smoking up to 80 cigarettes a day. The paper said she takes pills by the handful and obsessively checks her skin for infections that could result in her losing her transplanted face.
Dinoire has said she is haunted by images of Maryline Saint-Aubert, the 46-year-old suicide victim whose face was used in the transplant.
“There isn’t a moment that goes by when I don’t think about Maryline and her family but I can’t bear to look at her features,” she has said. “I have removed all the mirrors from my home and try to avoid reflections wherever I go. I just don’t want to look at myself. It is too harrowing.”
Gee, you don’t say…
