Indianapolis, IN |
I was diagnosed with stage3 colon cancer. Dr. Thompson was my surgeon. He successfully removed all colon cancer and lymph nodes affected. I had a few complications from surgery which were diagnosed quickly and treated. Follow up in the hospital as well as office visits were great! I have had scans showing no remaining cancer. I am finishing a round of chemo as a precaution. Soon I will have a colostomy reversal and hernia repair surgery. I choose Dr. Thompson for this surgey as well!!
