For several years I have suffered with severe itching and burning around the area of the vagina. I had a hysterectomy in Nov. 2004, my Gyn. said that there was a white patch there, I went back for my yearly in July 2005, he gave me a steroid creme for the irritation, I went back to him in Nov. 2005, he did a biopsi, called me a week later end told me that it showed vulvar cancer. He made an appt. with Onc. for Dec. 2005. The onc. did a second biopsi, it showed VIN III. I had surgery in Jan. 2006, a partial vulvectomy. The Onc. said that he "got" it all and I was clear, no treatments, didn't have to remove lympnodes. It is now 5 weeks post-op, took forever to heal, very irritated,NOW, the itching and burning is back. I don't go back for a checkup until June! Is there a chance that it could come back that soon! If anyone is experiencing the same issues, I'd like to hear from you.
