mom with uterine cancer

hi all,

my mom just found out less than a week ago. that cancerous cells were found in the lining of her uteris. she was diagnosed with endometriosis a few months ago, and at that time she did NOT have the cells.

the dr. says they are stage 3 cells. she is getting surgery on tuesday to have her uterus taken out and ovaries. and if there are other damaged tissues they are going to take biopsy or take out.

i am so worried. and so stressed out. my grandma died 5 years ago from cancer. and my maternal aunt has lung cancer. and now this! my mom also has congestive heart failure/sleep apnea. needless to say i am horrified for this surgery.

How does this type of cancer progress? i have anxiety as it is, and all of this lately is just sending me to a panic mode! is prognosis usually good if the cancer is not in any other tissues? she did not have the cells three months ago.

help!
