Dear lybrate-user ji
I must appreciate your love and concern for your girlfriend. As you might already know that stage iiib, (1) cancer has spread to the pelvic wall; and/or (2) the tumor has become large enough to block one or both ureters (tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder) or has caused one or both kidneys to get bigger or stop working.
Since she already had surgery there is a 60% chances of living for another 5 years with radiation or chemo.
The reason for her vomiting and pain might be side effects of the treatment given.
You have to be strong and be supportive to her. You both are going through and emotional and physical turmoil. May the almighty give you both strength to go through this tough time.
With prayers for good health

Inflammation on a Pap smear can be found in a patient of any age and may be attributable to a benign infection — such as Candida vaginitis — that need be treated only if the patient is symptomatic. Sexually transmitted infections can also cause an inflammatory reaction on the cervix and should be treated accordingly.
Lets discuss your concern in detail so that we can provide you with the best medication plan.

Treatment options in recurrent cervical cancer is very limited.
The management mainly depends on the primary treatment received and the site and extent of recurrence.
In your case as the patient had already received chemoradiation, so in case of recurrence the only viable option remains is of carboplatin or cisplatin based chemotherapy. Despite treatment, the prognosis is guarded.
You should take proper check up again like sonography.
Chemotherapy may have killed cancer cells that time but it does not cure the tendency to grow it again.
There are chances of recurrence.
You can consult me at Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment.
You should consult an oncologist and take proper advise.
Diseases like cancer cannot be advised like this.
My other advise is to take homoeopathic treatment side by side. It is the best way to reduce the complications and get healthy fast.

Patient needs to be evaluated clinically and may need colpo guided biopsy before planning treatment. This helps to decide about extent of surgery. The aim of treatment will be to give patient single modality of treatment .Either surgery alone or radiotherapy.
If she is planned for surgery it need to be done by trained gynec oncologist so that chances that she will need further treatment is reduced to minimal.
The cost of surgery is around a lakh .My hospital has patient support program also if patient is not affording they can also apply for it.
