    Hello dahlings, Most of you know about my chronic pain caused by my Vulva Lichen Simplex Chronicus. Later today my Dr. is going to attempt to destroy my Vulva nerves. This is going to hurts like a motha!!!!!! He isnt giving me any pain injections, no numbing the area, no twilight sleep, NOTHING. When he did the temp. procedure, he used a needle as long as my arm and stuck that needle in about 8 different places. OMG, it hurt. I can only imagine how it will feel this time.

    Im excited, anxious and scared. This may actually work and numb my entire vulva area. Im afraid of the pain I will feel during the procedure. Please wish me luck, cross your fingers or say a prayer for me.

    hugs to all

    Best wishes to you!! I HOPE beyond hope that this works for you! You have suffered long enough!

    Why is he not giving you anything for the pain for the procedure? I'm sure there is a logical reason, but not logical enough for me! lol

    You are strong!

    Please keep us updated, as I'm sure you will! Just before the procedure say to the doctor, "If this doesn't work, be prepared for me to inject YOUR "hoo hoo" with a needle as long as your arm 8 times!" lol He just might be more inclined to make SURE that it works! lol

    You go girl!

    Hugs
    Debbie

    LMAO re- inject his hoo hoo. Too funny. He wont give me anything for pain because it would take longer for the pain meds to work, than the procedure will take. It takes about 10 mins. But it feels more like and hour. Thanks Debbie, for all your support. You have helped me so much. Your a true and loyal friend.

    Love and muahs

    Slik honey, I think some areas are numb but I may have to have a larger area done. The thought of having to have it done again is terrifying. OMG, it hurt so friggin bad!!!!! I almost started crying. I held back the tears until I got into my car and then I just broke down.

    I dont know why he couldnt have numbed it up first, before shooting a crap load of Alcohol under my vulva skin. If there is a next time, Im gonna take three pain pills before hand.
