Hi! After vulvectomy on 15-10-03, my scars which healed without much problem on the outside are still sooo uncomfortable. Is this normal and am I being impatient? Or can someone tell me if it will stay this way? I just want to know what I must accept. I have lots of skin pulled into the vagina to cover the defect after a partial vaginectomy and unfortunately, I didn't have much elastic skin as I was never overweight.
The left over skin which was a part of the labia majora is pulled down almost parallel to the anus. And this is where I'm sitting on. Right on those scars. I got used to the hemmoroid which I got after surgery and which got worse during radiation therapy this winter. Anybody know if and when scar tissues can get softer?
