My sister was diagnosed with vaginal cancer last December. She underwent radiation/chemo for 7 weeks and brachetherapy (sp?) (internal radiation inserted into her tumor). In June she had a PET scan and all signs said she was in remission. She began having awful pain and they recently did another PET scan and a biopsy only to find that the cancer is back. The doctors have said all they can do is chemo now. Of course chemo is no cure, so it can really only prolong her life. Has anyone undergone any alternative treatments and what has been your outcome? thank you and God bless.
