My mother had surgery for USPC 2 weeks ago (clear PET scan; after surgery doc said stage 1, then said, "Well, technically stage 2 since pathologist saw microscopic cells in cervix"...all else was "clear"...nothing in lymph, abdomen, omentum, and so on). She is preparing for sandwich therapy, and the home health nurse mentioned today that an "order for a stent" has been placed. Can anyone tell me what the stent is for? I assume that this is different from a port??? I'm open to ANY info...about chemo or anything else. This info is for me; I'll leave it to the medical folks to inform her, or she can decide to join this forum, if she chooses. Thank you so much!
