in Hampton va |
Dr. Hoefer is probably one of the best. This is the problem i had. Surgery on cyst of pancreas was done very well. No cancer.It was done Dec.3. I'm still in pain.Dec.23. The Drs. Know it can take up to 5 weeks to be better or heal. Consequently my Christmas and New Year will not be good. I should have been advised that January would be a much better time.
