      The twin can't survive on its own being a parasite. It was a mass of flesh with nothing but a head, a body. hair, nails and a penis. It lived for 7 years inside Alanjan's body, getting its nourishment from Alamjan. After the surgery, it will no longer have its source of food because it will be cut to enable Alamjan's to lead a normal life.

      ...So wait a minute. Did the twin survive? I'm guessing he wasn't able to function normally, but the article doesn't really address it.
