when is someone considered cancer-free?
my mom had her surgery last month and finished a series of 6 rounds of chemo, she'll be getting another 2 starting next week. they removed all masses and did a full hysterectomy (for ovarian cancer). the surgeon said there was only microscopic cells remaining and the fluid in her abdomen tested positive with cancer cells.
my question is, is she now cancer free since there's no more tumors?
