I had TVH 11/14/00. Due to CIN111/severe dysplasia...
My reports after surgery were BENIGN. Excellent! I felt 100% cured of anything
Then my surgeon AND gyn said that I still need paps to check for vaginal cancer. Going every 4-6 months for a while.
I did not even know there was such a thing. I never asked about "what are my chances of getting vaginal cancer?".
So, of course this is on my list of questions to ask at my first postop appointment.
Now, I am auch a paranoid, I am scared of getting this. I had malignant melanoma (skin cancer) last year. 2 surgeries and all is gone. BUT, then the BAD pap that lead to the hysterectomy. Now what else can happen? Am I doomed or what?
I have been a little weepy since the surgery, lots of feeling sorry for myself etc...
But, I do want to know and find out as much as I can about vaginal cancer. I feel like if I am informed it helps SO MUCH in the before and after process.
Thanks for your patience with such a long message
