Had my first Mona Lisa Touch treatment today and wanted to share my experience .

Posted , 8 users are following.

First, a little background info. I am 70 yrs old and five years ago, I had a double mastectomy for breast cancer and a complete hysterectomy for ovarian cancer also, after chemo, I took Femara for five years. Needless to say, I was a good candidate to have Atrophic Vaginitis.  I have appreciated having this forum to hear other women's stories and it helped me to make the decision to have the MLTouch. So, today I had my first treatment. I want to post my experience along the way in hopes that by sharing my story, I can help other women. So, if you have any questions, I will be glad to answer them.  Knowledge is power, so maybe we can help each other .

    Look forward to hearing your journey and good luck. I am also contemplating the ML treatment. My problem is vaginal dryness. I don’t have any of the other problems (so far!) that so many of the other women in this forum suffer with so I guess I’m lucky from that point of view.

      So far, so good. The procedure was not painful as they apply a numbing cream. During the treatment, I did not experience any discomfort. Has been hours since and have only had a little burning.

    I had the Mona Lisa touch done 4 treatments.  After the fourth had severe burning in my urethra.  Was sent to specialist who said doc should have never given me these treatments because I never had a problem with my vagina only my urethra.  I now get severe pain in my urethra and having burning g pain on my pelvi are,not both at the same time.  I have even told by another doctor that I have nerve damage.  I am seeing a neurologist next ztursday.  Hope they can help me.  I don't have   Qualityof life anymore.  I constantly take oxy for the pain.  Saw a lawyer today about Filing suit against doctor.

      I am so sorry to hear you are going through this....and don't know why doctor would do the Mona Lisa treatments when your vagina area was okay.  These doctors are making a lot of money with these treatments....but should not do procedure unless nessessary.  Are you seeing a Urologist or neurologist? I would think urologist right?

      Please let us know how you are doing..  we hope for wisdom for the doctors to care for you to give you quality of life.

      Blessings,

      Wendy

      Lindab, have you had your urine tested to see if the burning could be caused by a bacterial or yeast infection? I feel so bad for you. Don't give up, there has to be something that will help.

      I feel so badly for you. Living with chronic pain is difficult. I have Atrophic Vaginitis along with Lichen Sclerosis . The Lichen Sclerosis is definitely brought on when my incontinence becomes strong from bronchitis coughing. It must have to do with the level of moisture in the area.

    The first night after my ML treatment, I experienced burning whenever I urinated and some spotting (which they told me to expect).  Hoping by tomorrow, I will start to feel better.
