WCVB-TV reports that 17-year-old Brett Bouchard is able to move his right arm again less than three weeks after his accident at Violi’s Restaurant in Massena, New York.
So far, Bouchard has undergone four surgeries at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Doctors said his quick decision to apply a tourniquet and recover the lost limb helped his recovery.
Bouchard will need still more surgeries to transfer new muscles to his hand. But he’s confident he’ll be able to regrow the nerves in his lower arm and regain his sense of touch.
