Rattana is a 32-year-old painter from Cambodia. He is married and has two sons and four daughters. He likes to paint houses and listen to the news on the radio.
Rattana was in a motor vehicle accident in October of 2010, causing a fracture in his left tibia. He came to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, in November of 2015, undergoing a successful open reduction internal fixation procedure to heal the fracture. At his follow-up appointment in February, Rattana was doing well.
Recently, however, he has returned to Children’s Surgical Centre due to pain and discomfort around the repaired fracture. Our medical partner is requesting $411 to fund surgery to remove the hardware from his previous procedure, allowing him to feel more comfortable again. The operation is scheduled for March 7 at our medical partner’s care center, Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre.
