Barbara, I am sorry they couldn't remove all the tumor. She should most deffinatly have both chemo and radiation. The standard chemo is Gemzar(gemcitibine) some have the RFS2000. Also a lot of people are doing different trials. She should see an oncologist as well as radiologist soon after leaving the hospital I am sure the surgeon will set her up an appointment with one. How old is your MIL, and does she have any other health problems? Lillie
