Diagnosed - SunnyDay

Oh No Associated with Vulvar Cancer. Posted on June 1, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

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.

    Thank you for contacting me. I will be undergoing laser on the 9th of next month. The cancer is VAIN I, what is your stage? I also lost a husband of 35 years to cancer in 2007 and hospice was there to help during the final stage. And yes, they are a God send. I am 62 and have had low grade cancers in the past. I know that in some cases chemo and/or radiation has cured cancer or kept in remission, maintaining quality of life in many individuals. My husbands cousin has been fighting colon and liver cancer with chemo, surgery and other treatments and he is still enjoying life. I hope you will find what is right for you.

    I really would like to know how you fare with the laser surgery. Although it is in a slightly different location, it will probably be quite similar.

    I sincerely wish you well.
