Her career was on the rise, but the reformed art scene suddenly went down after 1975. At this time, only the top famous artists such as Bach Tuyet, Le Thuy, Ngoc Giau, Phuong Lien … can stay with the profession. Trang Thanh Xuan’s name was not famous enough, so it fell into oblivion. No longer having the opportunity to be on the big stages, she had to travel around the provinces to perform with small troupes, earn money to support her family and treat her father’s serious illness. Her name also gradually fell into oblivion. Gradually she no longer shows, had to stop acting and sell boiled corn and fried banana cakes to feed the whole family. The difficult life made her not dare to think about getting married.
A few years later, her parents died one after another, her younger brother got married and stayed in-law, she and her sister suffered from loneliness. Together they went to Rach Ong market to live by selling lottery tickets and picking up bottles. At the age of 70, she and her sister had to live in a narrow, 6m2-wide motel, unable to accommodate a bed. The two still have to sell lottery tickets for a living, their daily income is less than 70 thousand. More miserable when she still suffers from vestibular disorders, heart valve regurgitation and rare rheumatism. Her illness made it difficult for her to walk, so she couldn’t do many things, so she could only cling to the job of selling lottery tickets. The difficulty is that, but female artists do not want to ask for help from relatives or former colleagues.
