Sat, Feb 2 9:15am · Diverticulitis in Digestive Health

I was diagnosed back in October of 2017 and I'm now dealing with the same symptoms and discomfort less than 4 months later. I changed my diet right away back when I was first diagnosed but I must have missed something. I am on liquids ONLY right now hoping I don't have to do antibiotics again. The side effects of the two that were prescribed in October were awful-they worked, but my balance and vision were affected. I felt very sluggish and "off." I lost weight back in October and have not been able to maintain a decent weight since. I just need some input as to what I may be doing wrong to warrant the symptoms I'm experiencing. I thought I had this disease under control. Boy, was I WRONG.

I hope I spelled these correctly. I was diagnosed, today, with both. I know absolutely NOTHING about either. Anything you can provide would be much appreciated.

Also, supplements such as Vitamin C and Marine Collagen Peptides are very good for keeping your skin healthy, among other great benefits they both provide. Loose clothing to prevent friction which will cause itching to worsen will be of help to you. *Keep your chin up. Things DO get better. Try, as hard as it is, to be patient. 🙂

Good morning @ret18. Several things I can tell you about this disease begin with getting rid of any soaps, laundry soap included that contain dyes and perfumes. These, for me, were true irritants. Keep the area clean and most importantly dry. Also, keep in mind that steroids could thin the skin over time so ask your gynecologist to either give you a mix of topical ointments or find a doctor that specializes in this disease. I started, luckily, with an oncologist who helped me TREMENDOUSLY. Because I carried my disease around, untreated, for so long my skin became paper thin and I had constant fractures of the skin that were very painful and caused scarring. Most recently, I found that CO2 laser therapy can help and it certainly has for me. Please don’t hesitate to message me. I’d be happy to help in any way I can. Perhaps I can at least point you in the right direction. Keep in mind, everyone is different and just because something works for one, doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for all. ***Keep your head up and I promise you there is help out there!!***

Aug 30, 2017 · Second laser treatment was a SUCCESS!!! in Autoimmune Diseases

I have now had two laser treatment for Lichen Sclerosis. The second treatment went well; in fact, so well, I’m REALLY looking forward to my next treatment. Things are looking better and feeling somewhat better and I have a great ‘VIBE’ about the final outcome!! *ON THE MEND AND FEELING HOPEFUL/THANKFUL

My first laser treatment happened this morning. It was a good start to getting me back to normal. 🙂 I’m a little swollen, have a little spotting and have some mild pain. Lidocaine was prescribed and IT HELPS!! I go back for treatment #2 on Aug. 9th. All and all I am feeling well and I am actually looking forward to getting back to the ole’ routine tomorrow. *I am full of hope with a sprinkling of anxiety 🙂
