Hello,

I am sorry your Mom had cancer. What did the pathology tests show after her uterus was removed? What did her doctor recommend at that time? How is she doing now?
Thanks,

she is great in god's grace...i just worried about my mom.. i told her to have a healthy diet... she is taking herbal medicine..

I cannot answer your question meaningfully unless you give me some information about the pathology of her cancer and what her doctor recommends now. Many herbal supplements can actually promote tumor growth or fight with other medicines so your Mom should be telling her doctor everything she is taking.

If you can give me some more information, I will be happy to try to answer your question as to whether your Mom may need more treatment. She should be seeing a physician at least every 6 months for a check up.

Best,
