So after many false alarms of trying to poop then actually going I am experiencing some symptoms again maybe from wiping or just a flare. Burning while peeing, some fissures, but still no itching. This is the after picture I took on left of me on day 8 and again the before from 10 days ago on right.
Kind of wish the swelling would of stayed. It was plumper the last I looked. Still looks so much better and zero LS symptoms. Progress not perfection!
Bruises always look worst when they are healing. I’m a bruiser always and these are to be expected but this is why I’m sore. My vagina is still symptom free and still is looking great. Will take a pic once a week leading up to my second stem cell treatment in 3 weeks. Will them film the O shot and the laser. That should be pretty. Haha
I am beyond blessed to be able to have such a loving doctor and staff that cared enough to let me do these treatments. I pray that one day these will be available for all LS suffers. Love you guys.
Could just be swelling but I have lips again and they are pink!
I starting having the unbearable itch in my early 20’s. my boyfriend would wake me up because I would scratch in my sleep. One night having sex I tore so bad about 3 inches and almost down to pelvic bone deep in my labia fold. The ER Dr’s were amazed and had everyone come in the room and take a peek. From then on I went down hill. Painful tearing when trying to have sex, blisters, fissures, a white cigarette looking film that would peel away. I went to several different doctors. Dermatologist, gynecologist, vulvadynia specialist. I was misdiagnosed but all the same I started clobetasol and estrogen cream. I started drinking to much and doing drugs to ease the mental pain and physical pain. I did a lot of damage. Still went to more doctors who always prescribed me more steroids. The steroids helped but did not stop the disease. During bad flares I would have steroid injections in my butt. I have tried every natural remedy I have read about. I found emu oil to be a great lubricant. At this point I have fused completely. My clitoris is long gone as is my labia minors. The entrance to vagina is so small I can barely fit a tampon in me. I have felt like I am not a full woman and have had times of severe depression due to this awful disease.
6 years ago I decided to get sober and started a journey of self love with many slips and falls. When I was in rehab I went to UCLA dermatology and had my biopsies and finally got the diagnoses to what I already knew I had. I also went to Dr. Nathan Newman to ask about stem cells in that area but couldn’t afford it. I tried having sex( lasted about 1 minute due to pain) and accidentally got pregnant and had a little boy who has been my reason for living. Obviously had to have him via c section because doctors said I would be wearing a colostomy bag if I had him vaginally. I haven’t had a relationship in 10 years and have given up on even trying. . Fast forward to now and I have a Dr friend who was interested in helping me. This is my journey now to see if it works.
