4 years ago I was diagnosed with VIN1. A short time later I had ablation surgery but even after the surgery I was still having symptoms. I returned to my doctor for 2 more biopsies to confirm I was cleared and both my biopsies were good. However, I wasn’t better and after 4 years I’m still not better. I have made repeated visits to my gynaecologist at which time he prescribed several creams that did not help. After discussing with him that I felt like it was on a cycle he put me on Lupron. He thought if he threw me in to menopause the problem would be solved. It was not. It helped but it did not fix the problem. Now I am left wondering what more can be done. Where else can I turn because I have left that doctor only to be put on a year long waiting list to a different doctor in hopes that she will listen and hear me rather than just shuffle me out the door with another cream that I already tried numerous times before. So I’m here with hopes that I can get some good clear advice or an answer or a suggestion. Anything really that may put me in a direction of healing. I am a 49 year old woman with a crappy quality of life and quite frankly I’m at the end of my rope. Thanks for taking the time to read this all the way through
