Vulvectomy for cancer


I'm so sorry about your situation, but glad that you are being proactive and getting it taken care of quickly.

I think Jo is right--let's try to reframe your surgery so that instead of mutilation, it's simply re-shaping your beauty to keep you healthy.

You'll certainly be in my prayers---glad that the 24th is almost here!

Vulvectomy for cancer

Lorianne, I had a simple vulvectomy along with my hyst in January for vulvar cancer in situ. From what I gather in your post, your situation is more advanced than mine and you may need more extensive surgery. I joined the support group on line and learned lots of things about the procedure and the after care. There are several ladies there who have had this procedure done. I CAN tell you this. I am a nurse and I didn't even want to sign my consent when I saw the word vulvectomy since my doctor hadn't used that exact term with me. I had terrible visions of mutiliated women I had seen 20+ years ago in nursing school. I can tell you mine was NOTHING LIKE THAT!!! I have learned from the women on the other site that a woman can and does live through these things. It sounds like you've already been through more than your share. If I can help you please let me know. I understand your anxiety and fear. I have just said a prayer for you.

Vulvectomy for cancer

I haven't been on-line for a long time, but your post caught my eye for some reason. Reason enough for me to keep you in my prayers for Tuesday. I'm so sorry that you have to go through this! I like what the other women said. Try to walk to help your recovery, and to reframe what is being done to you. You can still be beautiful even with parts of you missing. Go ahead and be angry about it too! I'm sending healing thoughts and prayers your way.
