I was recently diagnosed with non-invasive vaginal cancer. I know it is nothing like i have read in these stories but i am unsure about a few things i was hoping someone could answer. He is treating me with 5 FU vaginal cream, I can not find anyone that has been treated that way anywhere on the internet. I had a hyst 6 years ago still kept up on my paps even though they say you don't have to. I have the laser abaltion 5 months ago and now there is alot more there. So is there anyone out there who has used this treatment so I can get some idea of what i am up against. The fear of the unknown is the worst. I also have pelvic pain all the time and especially after intercorse and my onc says has nothing to do with it but i do not beleive that. thanks

Hi Kellie - I have not heard of the 5 FU Vag Cream either. I had surgery and rads. You are so right, the fear of the unknown is the worst. Is your Dr. an oncologist who specializes in Gyno cancers? I am asking, because from everything I've studied and from what my Onc. Specialist says, pelvic pain can be a symptom. As difficult as it is to do, try to keep a positive attitude and find something special to smile about every day. I will keep you in my prayers - know that you can get through this! Take care and keep in touch, Maggie Ann
