The parents of this eight-year-old boy have reported a Malaysian doctor to the police for botching his circumcision and removing most of his skin, making the lad’s member appear shorter and tilt to the left.
The parents of Muhammad Adly Hadi Adzrul, 8, took him to a private clinic for the circumcision via a clamp procedure on the 13th December.
According to the newspaper Harian Metro, the boy’s mother Rosnah Musa knew something was wrong straight after the circumcision.
Rosnah told The Malay Daily: “The situation worried me and my husband because it was not normal. We wanted to stay positive but we started feeling uneasy when Muhammad Adly’s penis started to swell on the third day after the procedure, once the clamp was removed at the clinic.”
Rosnah said that the doctor gave him medication, but their son still complained of pain and cried every time he had to urinate and his penis started to bleed.
Rosnah said: “At the time, my husband and I noticed that his privates began to ‘sink’, so without wasting time, we took him straight to the Seri Manjung Hospital.”
According to digital news outlet Says, the medical examination found that his penis had begun to sink into his body and his skin had been completely stripped away.
Doctors reportedly removed some blood clots before referring him to the larger Ipoh Hospital for a skin graft.
According to Says, the specialist informed the parents that Muhammad Adly might have a permanent defect and may need another operation in a few years time.
Rosnah went on to say that her son’s penis is now noticeably shorter and bends to the left and they are worried about his future.
The outraged mother wrote about the situation on Facebook, although the post has since been removed.
According to Says, Rosnah says she went to confront the doctor and has since filed a complaint with the police.
She added: “We will let the police investigate before taking further action.”
