My mom had a hysterectomy to remove her cancer. Monday the doctor came out of the OR and told me that it was good news and that they got all the cancer. Last night, she called me and told me that pathology said that she had cancer cells in her "stomach washings" or something like that. She also told me that she needs chemo now. Can anyone tell me what the "stomach washings" are (she explained this as best as she could and I'm still confused) and what to expect from chemo? The doctor told me that she hasn't even told my mom this yet...why? More questions than answers now. ANY help at all would be much appreciated.
