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
