    Hi Kangaroomom, I'm so sorry about your dx. I know you are scared, I was too. I was dx with stage IVa vaginal cancer at age 52 in sept 2011. I went through concurrent chemo & radiation to shrink the tumor (which it did!), then had surgery. My surgery date was feb 3rd 2012. So far I've been clear, no signs of recurrence.
    Vaginal cancer is a rare one, not a lot of info or people who've had it to talk to. If you have any questions or just need to talk or vent, I'm here for you. You can do this, hang in there!! Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers.

    Hi Blue Sky, sorry we had to meet on a cancer site. I was dx at age 52 (3 yrs ago) with stage 4a vaginal cancer, also squamous cell. I went thru concurrent chemo (5 fu & cisplatin) & radiation. My large tumor was gone after that, but my Drs suggested I have a posterior pelvic exenteration. So far all scans have been clean & I'm getting used to my 'new normal'. I am so grateful to be alive. If you have any questions, please let me know.
    Merry Christmas!!

    Hi sumapa! I was dx with vaginal cancer in Sept 2011. I went thru concurrent chemo & radiation, then surgery to remove just about everything. I have been cancer free since treatment. There aren't many women with vaginal cancer out there. I'm here if you have any questions or just need to talk.
    Hang in there! It does get better!!
