    I want you to know, you calmed my fears and have me more information than the Dr or his nurse have me. All the Dr said when he handed me the device was to use it ten minutes every day and to buy astro glide. This was cancer center of new mexico.

      I truly appreciate what you've done for me, which is far more than any help given so far.

      I had pelvic radiation for rectal cancer and suffer from vaginal stenosis. Those far-too-large hard plastic XXX (dilators) are so scary for many patients. My pelvic floor physical therapy suggested the water cones or a pelvic floor wand. The wand was very comfortable. Best wishes - sometimes we have to get way out of our comfort zone when we have cancer.

      @Dayle - I know it's embarrassing, but you might want to talk to your doctor about this as well.

      Mine suggested I visit an adult store and get one that could be fun to use. As an option to the hard plastic ones.

      I can't help you with this one, the above answers seemed like good advice. But I wanted to say...there is nothing to be embarrased about. That is what we are here for. Also, the Doctors and nurses have heard it all before. They are good to ask too.

    She looked at me a second, then burst out laughing. This is the third time playing cancer whack a mole. 4yrs ago I had a lumpectomy on the right breast, took 17 lymph nodes chemo and radiation. 2yrs ago, !t left breast decided it wanted attention so I got a mastectomy..so Jan i started bleeding. Got a dr who was surprised when I told him the last pap smear was 27 yrs ago. Bingo.
