Photos: The Woman with the Biggest Hands in the World’s A woman in Thailand has been living with intense pain due to her oversized hands. Dailymail reports that 59-year-old Duangjay Samaksamam, from Surin Province, Thailand, has suffered from an extremely rare and painful affliction that leaves her limbs permanently swollen.
She is supposedly the only person in the world to suffer from the rare condition macrodystrophia lipomastosa from shoulder to fingers on both arms. She finds it hard to perform daily tasks and she never went to school because she was ashamed of her looks. Doctors have told Duangjay that the only way out of her problem is to have her hands amputated but she doesn’t want this.She said:‘My hands are so heavy I can barely lift them to comb or shampoo my hair, it’s very difficult. Getting dressed is also very difficult and painful. ‘Some doctors said the only solution was to cut off my hands if I wished to walk around freely. But I don’t want to do that.’
