Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com.
I went through the reports and found that the parametrium seems to be involved. Though the FIGO staging system never mentions about isolated tumor cells presence, it decides the staging based on the parametrium involvement.
However, having undergone a definitive and a thorough surgery to remove the tumor, further radiation with chemotherapy and brachytherapy may be some kind of over treatment. However in my opinion, you cannot take a chance now of not treating.
A completion of treatment would be to go as above.
Alternate option is to go for chemotherapy alone with 6 cycles as a preventive measure reserving radiation for a later recurrence, if any.
The present case is a difficult scenario and opinions definitely vary. The ultimate decision is yours. Hoping and praying for your mother's complete recovery.
Please let me know if you have any further queries.

So in your opinion what should be the next usual treatment aprt from recent Surgery... Radiation Alone ( Internal + external) or Radiation with Concurrent Chemo.
I prefer chemotherapy alone.
Reserve radiation for the future. Radiation after surgery is going to have a lot of complications.
This is my personal opinion on your difficult and not-so-common scenario.

Thanks a lot for your Opinion but I have a final Question i.e.. can you please throw light as to what do this statement means in Ranbaxy Review report & what impact does this statement makes in totality......... " RIGHT PARAMETRIUM SHOW FEW TUMOR CELLS, HOWEVER NO REACTION IS SEEN AGAINST THESE TUMOR CELLS, THEREBY INTERPRETED AS FLOATER"
These may be few tumor cells which may have started to come out of the primary tumor through small blood vessel or a lymphatic channel. Sometimes there can be random cells present. This does not affect the managment protocol.
Please let me know if you have further queries.
