Well I guess we have learned to only take the stem cells from the part of the body that you would like healed. This would suck by the way, I feel bad for her.

I agree with Use your brain. Same cells for same parts. But, trial and error is how we get it right.

Nobody nose. The whole thing smells fishy.

Could be worse, could have grown in her arm pit.

She obviously just had a bad case of runny nose. It simply ran to her back. Do I have to start solving medical mysteries now?

Interesting. So I could take cells from a certain private area and graft them onto my forehead if I wanted?

Aren't you afraid that nobody will be able to tell the difference?
