I am two months past Radical Vulvectomy and total clitoridectomy. I have been hospitalized 3 times, totaling more than 20 days. Massive infections in the lymph node incisions, seroma, jp infections, wound vac, and lymphedema. Seems I have had almost every complication you can think of. Facing yet another new drain insertion in 3 days.
At my doctor's visit this week, my doctor asked my husband and I why we weren't "having sex." Is he for real? We haven't even had a chance to get my healing to the point where we can discuss what to do with that part of our lives. And with the doctor's statement that "sorry, but there will be no more orgasms,' we have little to look forward to.
Does anyone have any insight into this hot mess? We have researched until we are blue in the face, and have not found any information regarding my particular situation. Any help would be appreciated!
