Nob underwent an amputation so his leg can heal properly.
Nob’s surgery was a success, and he is recovering well! Nob shared that he is thankful to be alive after the trauma of losing his leg. He will remain at the hospital for observation and take antibiotics to decrease any risk of infection. Once he heals, Nob will work with the physiotherapist to be fitted for a prosthesis. Although his life will be different than before his accident, Nob looks forward to finding a new job and leading a happy life alongside his family.
Nob’s wife said, “We are grateful the surgeons acted quickly, and Nob will return home to his family. Thank you to the people who support Children’s Surgical Centre so that Cambodians like my husband have good medical care available.”

Last month, Nob was in a traffic accident where fractured his left femur. After the accident, he underwent surgery at a local clinic. Unfortunately, after two days, when doctors ordered an angiogram, they discovered that his femoral artery had ruptured in the accident. His left leg is pale and cold, and doctors have recommended an amputation to save the rest of his leg.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Nob receive treatment. On April 5th, he will undergo an amputation at CSC’s care center. Now, he needs help raising $446 to fund his procedure and care.
Nob shared, “I am thankful that I can use a prosthesis once I recover and return to work to support my family.”
