    Today, her handwriting almost matches her original, but what has left doctors surprised is how the colour of Shreya’s hands, which once belonged to a 20-year-old man from Kerala until his death in August 2017, had changed to match the rest of her skin tone.

    That is so cool! It's amazing the things they can transplant now. I'm really surprised that rennervation is a thing and it works.

      They are in the article, not just from the hands, she had everything from above the elbow down transplanted.
