Vaginal Tearing

How do I stop vaginal tears from occurring if I can't take hormone replacement treatments?  I have been in menopause for 12 yrs now.  I had a pituitary tumor and had it resected and stopped producing any hormones.  When they replaced the estrogen I developed tumors in my breast that were on the verge of turning to cancer. Atypical hyperplasia in every lumpectomy taken which was quite a few times.  I made the choice to remove both of my breasts and at the advice of my oncologist we stopped the estrogen immediately.  Now my vagina is like an 80 yr old womans and is constantly tearing. Forget about sex.  I don't even have a sex drive.  So now I am tearing just when I go to the bathroom.  What can I do? This is extremely painful.  Oh and they've tried estrogen cream with only 3 % in it but I itch like crazy with that.  Any suggestions are welcome.  Thanks.
