    A German who had his lower jaw cut out because of cancer has enjoyed his first meal in nine years -- a bratwurst sandwich -- after surgeons grew a new jaw bone in his back muscle and transplanted it to his mouth in what experts call an "ambitious'' experiment.

    According to this week's issue of The Lancet medical journal, the German doctors used a mesh cage, a growth chemical and the patient's own bone marrow, containing stem cells, to create a new jaw bone that fit exactly into the gap left by the cancer surgery.

    Tests have not been done yet to verify whether the bone was created by the blank-slate stem cells and it is too early to tell whether the jaw will function normally in the long term.

    But the operation is the first published report of a whole bone being engineered and incubated inside a patient's body and transplanted.
Doesn't sound like it's anything that is going to advance medical science in the long-term anytime soon, but I hope that this means something for the rest of us and that for this poor guy he can actually eat solid food in the long term.

If Rock is indeed returning at Wrestlemania to reform the Rock n Sock connection in the battle against Evolution, then shouldn't he have appeared on Raw by now?
