thanks for choosing health care magic.See what has been offered to her till now was appropriate as per the disease.during surgery utmost care is taken to remove any disease part left and after other therapy is also given to destroy minute disease cells that can not be removed by surgery as they are not visible.So relapse is unfortunate but needs treatment so please follow your doctors advise and keep patience.all the best to you and your mom.
