A PAEDOPHILE sentenced to castration has said it has left him “aching so badly” that he could hardly walk.
The unnamed convict was jailed for 15 years in Kazakhstan for raping an underage girl.
Chemical castration is now mandatory for life for convicted paedophiles in the ex-Soviet republic.
Speaking of his horror, he said: “It is incredibly difficult, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
“I am pleading for help, and I want to appeal to everyone so that chemical castration is cancelled.”
The man said he wanted to have a family when he is released from prison.
“I still hope to go back home, to continue my life,” he said.
“I want to have a family, I want to have children.
“My body is aching so badly after the injection that I struggle to walk, and it is scary.”
Kazakhstan has used chemical castration on 11 convicted paedophiles since a new law came into force in 2018.
His description of chemical castration has been apparently issued as a warning to potential child sex offenders.
Government funds have been allocated for the procedure to be used on 88 child sex attackers initially.
The country has purchased stocks of Cyproterone, a steroidal anti-androgen developed for fighting cancer, to use for the chemical castration of paedophiles, according to reports.
The law applies to child sex attackers aged between 18 and 65.
A nurse and grandmother tasked with castrating paedophiles in one Kazakh jail claims the West should also follow the ex-Soviet state’s example.

Zoya Manaenko, 68, who works in a prison hospital, insists it’s right that child sex attackers should face this punishment.
“These people need to be stopped somehow,” she said.
“They commit terrible crimes against children. So it is right that the law allows this.”
But, Russian psychiatrist Mikhail Peruvshin claimed chemically castrated paedophiles could become more dangerous once they are released from jail.
“Such people are ‘mentally ill’ and by blocking their sexual desire, they may instead kill,” he said.
