Hi my mum just had a hysterectomy and is now waiting for the wound to heal before chemo. Chemo is used to kill off any remaining cancer cells that may be left behind and also helps to prevent it recurring. chemo is usually given in a cycle of 6. my mum has to have a cocktail of chemo, once every 3 weeks until she has had 6 lots.
Your wifes cancer is one of the most common and responds very well to treatment, there has been lots of clinical trials and research on this type of cancer. My mum is not so lucky she has a clear cell carcinoma which is quite rare, very aggressive and also chemo resistant, it's allexperimental as there has not been many trials due to its rarity. Good luck to you both on your journey x

thanks for choosing health care majic.See in case of malignancy the surgery is done to remove the primary focus and all possible organs which seems involved are removed.But is this kind of cases there are still micro invasion in the surrounding tissue is there and that is the place where chemotherapy is helpful.The dose etc. depends upon the protocol that your doctor is following.He is also the best person to tell about future events.
