FACE-CHEWING VICTIM: "Feeling Well," Doctors Say
The homeless man who had part of his face chewed off in a bizarre attack last month alongside a busy Miami highway is "feeling well," doctors said yesterday.
The left eye of 65-year-old Ronald Poppo was removed, but doctors are still trying to restore his sight in his right eye while he remains at the Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. In the coming weeks, he's expected to undergo several more surgeries and then will begin to explore facial reconstruction.
Dr. Nicholas Namias said, "He's pleased to report to all of you that he's feeling well, he's eating, he's walking around with physical therapy, he's talking with us."
