Someone with uterine cancer will likely have a hysterectomy, or surgical removal of the uterus, to treat the condition. A hysterectomy is a major operation, so if you are caring for someone with uterine cancer, she will likely need assistance with some daily tasks as she recovers from a hysterectomy. Complete recovery from a hysterectomy can take up to 2 months. The hospital stay ranges from 1-3 days.
Advanced stages of uterine cancer require radiation or chemotherapy treatment after surgery. These treatments take a large toll on the body, and someone going through them may feel ill much of the time and have difficulty with some day to day tasks. Be available to help someone in the ways that she needs, and be sensitive to her sickness.
