    My tumor was not removed -- it had eroded the wall of my vaginal canal and caused a recto vaginal fistula that I still have -- they tried 1 surgery to repair and it was such a horribly painful experience I don't know if I would let them try again. Because of this they waffled with my staging IIIa or IIIb.
    I was trwated with 5 fu and cisplatin -- radiation at the same time.
