Grandmother receives six new organs from same donor

 A GRANDMOTHER has stunned doctors by making a remarkable recovery after undergoing a transplant operation to receive six vital organs – all from the same donor.

Joanne Adam, 47, endured 20 hours of surgery to have her stomach, liver, bowel, pancreas and small and large intestine replaced.

 She had been diagnosed with a rare tumour on her liver which spread to other organs, putting her life at risk.

But after eight months on the transplant list, Ms Adam, from Johnstone, Renfrewshire, got a phone call to say a donor match had been found.

Yeah, but can she even really be considered the same person at this point?
