Vaginal Cancer after hysterectomy?

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

Sincerely, tander
TVH/11/14/00 CIN 3

Vaginal Cancer after hysterectomy?

I had a tah/bso in June this year, and I had the same question. What would I possibly need a check up for now with no cervix, ovaries, or uterus left? I was told I would be checked for vaginal cancer. My doctor said that Vaginal cancer is very rare. I'm not worried about it myself. My advice is just stay on your suggested follow up schedule-I am!
