Wow, what an encouraging message.
On January, I had a couple areas that developed growths, which were biopsied and I was diagnosed with squamous cell skin cancer. I had a radical bilateral vulvectomy including my clitoris. However, there is still some LSA itching in my rectal area. The doctor said we first needed to take care of the Vulva area and later check the other as it would be an even more complicated surgery if needed, (of which I am believing won't be necessary}.
I'm doing great after my surgery. It's wonderful to be without the pain.
Lidocaine became my best friend for a season.
I wish I had heard of the emu oil earlier, but I am going to try it.
If I can encourage anyone, it is to do anything, try anything that works for someone else, to keep the LSA under control. I confess that I should have been more agressive to do so. The Clobetasol and Halobetasol didn't work for me all the time, and I didn't keep control of the scratching. It was overwhelming. But the pain of the cancer was worse than anything I could have imagined. You don't want to go there!
I am so thankful that the Lord has given me peace, even through all that I've gone through. And my husband is a champion of care and understanding.
I'm also thankful for this forum. Communication is a powerful thing.
