returning cancer

Doctor
Back in October, my wife (Age 55) was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Immeadiate surgery recommened. Received 6 hours of  surgery at MT> SINAI hosp. in NYC  to remove numerous tumors in her reproducive area.  The surgery consisted of a complete debulking, including striping diaphram and a portion of the liver.  The sugeons assured us after surgery that no cancer was left behind.  My wife just finished her 6th and final round of Chemotherapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering.  She received both IV and IP Cemo - Cisplatin and Taxol.  She tolorated well except for almost unbearable burning in belly during ip treatment.  Both onc and surgeon could not explain burning but said not to be concerned.  Her CA125 was 44 at time of diagnosis and is now 3.  What are your thoughts about her treatment, and what are the chances of cancer returning.
