Koeun has two sons and two daughters. All her children are married and she has three grandchildren. She likes to look after her grandchildren, cook food for them, and go to the pagoda for occasional ceremonies.
In March 2019, Khoeun fell down the stairs at home and dislocated her left hip. At that time, she was quiet and thought it would just be painful for a while. She took some medicine to help reduce the pain. However, the pain only became worse so Khoeun decided to come to Children’s Surgical Centre for treatment. When she arrived at our hospital she was unable to walk or move her hip at all and her pain was severe. To treat her painful recurrent left hip dislocation, our surgeons will perform a reduction procedure. This will allow her to walk again without pain.
“I hope that my surgery will be done well so I am not in pain anymore. When I can walk again I will go outside with my grandchildren,” Khoeun said.
