I am 32 years old. I am going in for a wide local excision of the right vulva on 5-8-03. I have been on line researching what to expect afterwards but have not gotten many results. I have had two prior surgeries one at 25 for cysts, endometriosis and a leep procedure on my cervix. Second leep at age 30. My latest biopsy indicated VIN III. I feel very uncomfortable discussing this with people as I had never heard of vulvar cancer before. My doctor, I feel, has not given me much information. I have called and left a message but no return call. Maybe I am being a bit whiney as other women are much worse off than I. I was even reluctant to go on this site. I was hopeful that I may find some help here. Just knowing there are others brings me comfort however, I wish none of you would have to experience such a thing.
