On Tuesday, an Iraq war veteran, a quadruple amputee, appeared before cameras to talk about his double arm transplant.

Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital performed the first surgery of its kind.

Brendan Marrocco, 26, is officially being discharged, but he knows he has a long recovery ahead. He still doesn't know if his new limbs will function.
