Patient Comments (1)
Reading, PA |
My father (86 years old) developed colon cancer and had a large tumor creating a blockage in the decending colon. Dr Trang performed a colon resection and removed that area of the colon. Within 3 days my father was eating normal food, spent only 5 days in the hospital, took another 5 days in rehab since he lives alone, and now 3 weeks after the surgery he is driving, eating, going to the gym and walking on the treadmill. He feels better already than before the surgery. Zero complications!
