WTF!!! Poor Bastard
A man with a tumour tipping the scales at 198 pounds on his right leg is set to go under the knife in Vietnam today to have the growth removed, it has been reported.
Left unable to walk by the swelling that weighs more than the rest of his body, Nguyen Duy Hai's enormous tumour is to be cut away by a team of medics in ten hour operation that only has a 50 percent chance of success.
Hai, 31, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder, has been living with the tumour since he was four years old, a statement from the France-Vietnam hospital in Ho Chi Minh City detailed.
"This is a huge procedure with many risks, including the risk of death during surgery or post-operative care," the hospital said.
The hospital added that despite being warned of the potential problems with the surgery, Hai has nonetheless decided to proceed with removal.
Lead doctor McKay McKinnon successfully removed a tumour weighing over 176 pounds from a Romanian woman in 2004. . . .
