      make it 4 for a female 2nd (or is it 3rd) opinion. Sounds like your first doc wasn't into aggressive pain management, which is big issue no matter what procedure you have.

      Hi vbright,

      I had a Radical vulvectomy in October 2012 and you are right the Dr. Thinks all is great it is in the fact that they got all the cancer but now I am dealing with the recovery.

      Good Luck

      Ok..I can totally understand, the fear. But please DO NOT cancel your surgery! it has nothing to do with the sex of your Dr. but their knowlege and how competent they are! I just completed chemo and radiation a year ago after undergoing a radical vulvectomy. I was diagnosed and was scheduled for surgery a week later withou having met my surgon, I was that far gone! it had spread to my lymph nodes on my left side..I was the equivelent (sp) of stage 4! I guess I can be graphic here so Ill lay it out plainly for you, I had part of both sets of Inner and outer ..lips removed..and honestly? It didnt hurt too bad! the pain of the ulcers I had indured for a few year were far more painful!..if you want to talk more about it Id be happy to speak with you e-mail me at [email redacted]
