Nguyen Duy Hai had a 198 pound tumor on his right leg and needed a very risky operation to remove it.
Fortunately, Nguyen survived!
The procedure lasted 10 hours and was performed by an American surgeon.
Here's what Nguyen had to say:
"It's common for people to fear death, and I’m no exception. But when I heard that Dr. McKinnon had decided to come back to Vietnam one more time to give me a new life, I became more hopeful."
The tumor had been growing since he was 14, and is the biggest tumor ever reported in Vietnam.
We are SO glad everything went well, Nguyen! We hope you have a speedy recovery!
