Separated conjoined twins eat, play and watch TV together

world Updated: Nov 24, 2009 14:59 IST

Conjoined Bangladeshi twins Trishna and Krishna, now separated are getting to know each other by playing, eating and watching television together.

Trishna who basically got her nutrition from her sister all these years is now learning to eat by herself.

"It just shows you the amazing sort of changes that have happened with the girls in this very short time," Leo Donnan, chief of surgery for Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital, said.

The twins were moved out of intensive care unit to an ordinary ward yesterday.

"The exciting thing is they're now starting to play," he said, adding the healing process will be slow-going but they are now looking at each other from separate beds in the same room.

He said Trishna is now sampling little crumbs of bread and fruit, while Krishna, whose kidney function is being monitored closely, spent the morning watching DVDs.

The twins are continuing their impressive recovery, Donnan said.
