When chemo is stopped are you cancer free?

A friend has been going for chemotherapy for breast cancer. Recently the doctor says she should stop coming. She asked me the question above. I told her I'll check online and see what I can discover. Can anyone help? I enjoy all your inputs here on mylot. Wishing all of you a blessed last day of February.

Surely he should have told her and explained everything to her and not leave her like that? She woiuld have to see a Specialist in that field. I would get a second opinion if possible from another Doctor.
there may be 2 reasons why the doctor said that: one is the cancer cells have been controlled and eradicated; the other one is the cancer cells cannot be controlled anymore and it has metastasized. i hope the first reason is the reason.
