The recipient of the nation's third successful hand transplant expects his new hand to get a workout holding a fishing rod this weekend.
David Savage, 54, is on his way home to Michigan. In November, Savage underwent about 15 hours of hands surgery in Louisville, Ky . He lost his right hand in a machine press accident more than 30 years ago.
Savage said he's getting more movement out of his fingers, and cannot wait to go fishing with two hands.
