Her Body Is Rejecting Her Face

From The New York Times:

Ms. Nash received a full-face transplant at Brigham and Women’s Hospital two years later. She got a new forehead, nasal structure, nose, lips, nerves, facial skin and facial muscles. Her sight never returned. Doctors also performed a double hand transplant but both hands “failed to thrive” and were removed, the hospital said.

With Ms. Nash’s body beginning to reject her face, Dr. Pomahac said she would be removed from the research study.

Knowing that your body is rejecting your new face must be a hell of a morale booster. What a sad story.
