vaginal cancer after 3 yrs from hysterectomy

i had pre-cancer/dysplasia from 1992 to the time i had my total hysterectomy oct 31, 2000. dr removed cervix, ovaries, everything...but did not do a radical hyster. now i started having abnormal paps again after 2 years from my surgery. i had a biopsy done last week and now they are saying I have vaginal cancer. has anyone else ever had this??? they have sent it off to see what stage,etc. I do not have a cervix but i do have the cervical cuff or is it cusp??? I hope someone has had this before and can answer me....also what are the treatment opinons here??? my husband is retired military and i have to use the base for all my medical care and this is where they found the cancer....so i am concerned as to the treatment....thanks. Mary

Hi Mary,

I am sorry that your problem keeps coming back. I was treated for a primary vaginal cancer in 2003. I could not find anything on "cervical cuff". Do you mean vaginal cuff?

Your treatment will depend on the stage. There really is no way to know until the stage is known. Whatever it is - treatment is doable. I had surgery and radiation. I am fine now. Just saw my Doc Tuesday and he said I am in complete remission. You will be too very soon.

If you have more questions or just want to talk - feel free to PM me.

Take Care,
Sharon

HPV virus that causes cervical cancer can reoccur in the vagina. I have seen a few women on this board who have had vaginal cancer after cervical. It is why we still have to get paps. I am sorry that you are going through this again!

Mary best of luck to you. If this is grade 1 dysplasia then hopefully it will be easily taken care of. I am sorry you have to go through this.

Stage 1 is a good thing. That was the stage I was hoping for.

That means they can easily treat this with a fantastic cure rate. You may simply have the lesion removed and receive some radiation and even some chemo. If you get the 5FU don't worry its doable. So is the radiation.

Please let us know how things are going and what your treatment will be.

There are a few of us Vaginal girls that can help you if you need, all you gotta do is ask.

Good Luck!

Hi Mary,

I am sorry you got bad news on your report. But as Forgen said, stage 1 is absolutely curable. I know it is really scary, but you really will be OK. I know you are limited in where you can go for treatment due to being military, but if at anytime you are not comfortable with what they tell you, get a second opinion.

Let us know how you are doing. Feel free to email or Pm me anytime.

Take Care,
Sharon
