No. Depending on the type and severity of the cancer, surgery may be local or a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) local surgeries do not affect your tubal ligation.
No. Pre-cancer of the cervix, also called dysplasia, is often treated with leep surgery which would not affect a tubal ligation. More serious invasive cancers of the surgery generally require a hysterectomy, in which case a tubal ligation would no longer be necessary, but the hysterectomy would not change the tubes or adversely affect them.

My mom has cervical cancer stage 2 dr's r saying have radiation and chemotherapy but it is possible to have surgery?

Check details. She may be being told to have chemoradiation to shrink the tumor and then have surgery. I'm confused though, you listed a stage for the tumor and that is. Usually from surgical pathology exam. Clinical staging can be used though, so double check the details with her docs. If you aren't comfortable with a treatment plan, seek a2nd opinion before committing to one.
Not advisable. For stage 2 cervical cancer, most people recommend chemo + radiation. Surgery alone is unlikely to remove all the cancer, so they would have to have chemo and/or radiation anyway. Older studies showed very high complication rates with surgery + radiation.

10 months after rad hyster for cervical cancer abdom pain, tenderness, swelling, and slow bowels. 25 radiation treat. No urge to urinate since surgery?

Room for bladder. After the uterus has been removed, there is more room for the bladder to expand. The presence of a uterus is one of the reasons that women stereotypically have to urinate more often than men do. If you ever go more than six hours without urinating, though, or if you ever feel that your bladder is full, but can't empty it, that is a medical emergency.
Abdominal pain. You may need to be evaluated for possibiliy of urinary retention. During radical surgery sometimes the pelvic nerves can be injured causing nerve damage to your bladder. A bladder u/s after voiding may help determine the cause of your pain.
