Riverside Beggar Has Giant Growth Removed

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Am I the only feeling that's a pretty light hearted announcement....?

It seems pretty callous, and she doesn't seem to want to acknowledge that her intervention led directly to his death.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

It's OK, she got a blessing and all is forgiven.

She should probably stick to saving cats.

I know they brought in surgeons for his operation (from where I don't know) but I was surprised they would attempt this surgery here and not in Australia or somewhere. I don't know the reason they chose to do it locally, but perhaps the outcome may have been different otherwise. Poor guy.

Yeah, it's fantastic they brought in specialist surgeons and looks like the operation was a success itself.

However, its unfortunate that none of the organisation or people involved had the foresight to recognise that he has a very rare blood type for Cambodia and that perhaps tur fucking Soviet Hospital isn't the best place for a trouble free recuperation from such an ordeal.

Me too. Then when I saw the head section scans of the guy that the woman posted, I had an ominous feeling - it was obviously a very complicated procedure.
