Hi Jane I have a question for you I went to see my Awesome DPT on friday and she said that our apt. would be the last one for awhile because of the Iowa Care I have I have to be re-refered and also my pain/infection need to quite down a bit. I am mad and want to cry she told me that she would be seeing me again, but also agreed we needed sometime off. I know doing my therapy at home but when I don't go see her my pain levels have been higher I have charts for her to look at for pain levels. She looked at my vaginal skin and said it was very red and irritated which I knew she thinks I could have a yeast infection still the weired bug. I'm afraid that my pain is going to get worse.On-top of that I have had so much burning and spotting and tearing my GYN might have to do some stitching I will be calling him first thing in the morning because since I saw him about two weeks ago there was still no improvement. My Vagina hurts so bad I just want it to fall off.Thanks for your Reply!0 Replies |[a style="color: rgb(0, 102, 153); cursor: pointer;">Watch This Discussion | [a style="color: rgb(0, 102, 153); cursor: pointer;">Report This | Share this:JANE PLEASE HELP Hi Jane I have a question for you I went to see my Awesome DPT on friday and she said that our apt. would be the last one for awhile because of the Iowa Care I have I have to be re-refered and also my pain/infection need to quite down a bit.

Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear smjpain: The loss of the physical, and persona,l support of your pelvic floor PT must be devastating. It sounds like the vaginal redness and pain have increased to the point where it is difficult to do the needed vaginal massage and dilation. So seeing your GYN or the GYN Pain specialty clinic in an attempt to treat any yeast or spotting/tearing may be your best bet. Perhaps you remember the reader who had chronic vaginal skin splits every time she attempted intercourse. In her case she had to undergo many treatments until improvement arrived. The same might occur for you.

That your PT promises to resume care is a good sign. She has done a lot to validate then improve your vaginal/vulvar symptoms. I just wish that a magic cure could be found which would erase your inflammation and pain.

In Sympathy,
Jane
