Update: January, 07/2012 - 10:01

HCM CITY — Surgeons successfully removed a 90-kilogramme from Nguyen Duy Hai's right leg following a 12-hour surgery at the France-Viet Nam Hospital Hospital in HCM City on Thursday.

Hai, 32, of Da Lat is in good condition, though the success of the surgery would only be known in 15 days to three weeks' time after his organs resume normal functioning.

Sixty Vietnamese and foreign doctors took part in the surgery to remove the biggest ever tumour in Vietnamese medical history.

Although there were no concerns about his health so far but recuperation would be a challenge, the hospital's medical director Gerard Desvignes said.-VNS
