what to expect

My wife is having metastatic breast cancer . She underwent six regimens of palliative chemotherapy after which a surgery was done. Post surgery report read no residual disease.She is having monthly check ups and in on Tamoxifen 20 mg tablet a day. But Doctor says cancer can stage a come back. At present my wife is active and does all her chores and house chores too. She is also doing exercises recommended. My query is how to be on vigil for return of cancer returning back and what precautionary measures she has to take?

Cancer can return at any time. It seems like she's already doing everything she can.

God Bless her.
