    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I do not want to undergo surgery or chemo. I've lived life to the fullest and don't want to end mine with invasive procedures that may or may not completely remove cancer. I've read the blogs from young women who have had multi surgerys and chemo and still are not cured. I'm 65 diagnosed with vulvar cancer. Is anyone out there who has chosen not to have treatment? My husband of 33 years passed away last July he had hospice care and passed in his sleep at home. They are the most wonderful people in the world and I look forward to having them with me at the end.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I went in scared and apprehensive, I asked about follow-up radiation or chemo and my onc. surgeon said no that they would do more harm than good. So far no pain due to the fact I was given THERMAZENE cream and really strong pain pills. I will post my recovery on my wall.

    Went as Expected: Not Specified
    Minimal Recovery: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Not Specified

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I went for my post-op checkup and my oncologist said everything was healing nicely. He has sent records to my Gyno . And said to follow up with her in 4-6months. And get checkups every six months for the next five years. I hope and pray for each and everyone of you. And want to thank you for sharing on this site. May you all be as blessed as I am.
