My mom was diagnosed with cervical cancer in Dec 2012. She had surgery in January 2013. Her right ovary, lymph nodes, fallopian tubes and mass in her uterus were removed by robotic Davinci surgery. She went to her Dr today, and he told her even though he did a partial hysterectomy, the tumor on her cervix still exists and she will need radiation/chemo treatment for 5 weeks. Please let me know if this type of treatment for a Stage 2B cervical cancer works??? She hasnt begun the treatment yet..but im hoping she will beat this. She had a minor heart attack 2 yrs ago and takes warfarin..and i hear that the radiation can cause problems when taking this medication. Please...anyone who has info about this..and what to look out for..share your story. Thank you kindly.
