No more manhood after wrong medical visit

A Takeo province woman filed a complaint with district officials this week after a village doctor allegedly failed to cure her husband’s vascular condition, and instead induced a case of permanent impotence.

Touy Kim Sreang, deputy governor of Prey Kabbas district, said he was organising a mediation after receiving the complaint of a 44-year-old woman seeking $1,500 in compensation for her husband’s loss.

“The victim’s family demanded a lot of money, and the village doctor said he has no money,” said Kim Sreang, adding that he was seeking a settlement between the two parties.

According to Kim Sreang, the wife brought her husband to the village doctor a week earlier when the provincial hospital refused to treat the husband’s vascular condition in his legs.

The village doctor promised that with four to five injections, his legs would improve.

Instead of an improvement in the legs, however, he apparently lost the use of his penis, said Kim Sreang.

“When she and her husband went to ask the doctor about that problem, he said that one more injection would improve it, but the penis still didn’t work, so she filed a complaint to us.”

Neither Kim Sreang nor Prey Kabbas district governor It Sa knew what medication the man had been injected with.
