  1. I suffered cervical cancer in 2006 and had residual cancer at the vaginal vault 5 years later. Because of the radiatheray and chemo I had in 2006 they ended up doing a complete pelvic extenuration. I was in hospital in the UK for two years and underwent four major surgeries ending up with a colostomy and urostomy. These are permanent. If that would be any help in your studies please contact me.
