Ask her oncologist!: I am sure her oncologist would be happy to help you in this matter. There can be many reasons for having bone pains, so you will need to provide me a detailed history of what all has been done to her since her diagnosis of cervix cancer. That is why her doctor is the best person to ask your questions. You and her oncologist need to check if pain is due to further spread(progression) of cancer.
