Would like to find out how many ladies have been able to overcome any vaginal issues caused by radiation? What is working for you? I seem to be getting some good results using dilators and a couple of products, sorry for being graphic. Astro glide and replens are helping. On my way to getting back my groove. I had thought this was not possible. Woo Hoo it is. I am 3 years cancer free.

    I'm sort of surprised you haven't had any response on this but the board has been pretty busy and sometimes things get knocked to the bottom pretty quick.

    I never had radiation but chemo did a job on me in reference to vaginal issues. Matter of fact, I had inflammmation throughout my body from the chemo. I am almost 4 months out from chemo and the problem still exists. Good news is my 6 month retake pap smear was negative for inflammation this time so *maybe* things are healing.

    Glad you got your groove back:)
