Guðmundur Felix Grétarsson, the Icelandic man who received a pioneering transplant of two entire arms and shoulders at the start of this year, no longer needs to spend all day and night at hospital in Lyon, France. His rehabilitation continues to go well.

“Happy days! Now I’m free from full time hospitalization it’s celebrated with a #barbecue. From now on I just show up...” Guðmundur Felix wrote on social media yesterday.

Despite the celebratory barbecue and permission to start sleeping at home, the process remains arduous and will take three years overall. It is still not known how much use he will eventually have of his new arms, but his recovery is going as well as his doctors could have hoped for so far. He still spends his days at the hospital, working with doctors and physiotherapists.
