I'm scared. Was sent to mayo clinic. Tons of docs came in and looked. Now having surgery due to cancer may be present. I'm scared. I need to talk to someone. I'm 61 have been married for 17 years have four grown children and ten grandchildren. I'm so scared. I had no idea this was even a thought for me. I knew I had it bad now for four years but no one ever mentioned cancer until this week. I'm so scared. He said that they have never seen a vagina this bad that was not cancer. I'm so scared. Need to get blood sugars down to 8 before they operate. I have a pre-op appointment Monday morning. I'm just so scared. I don't want it to be that! I just want to have a bad case of LS and treat it. I can't stop thinking of what may be happening to me. I'm just so scared. What to do? I'm scared. Charlotte

    Hi Charlotte,  I'm so sorry to hear about this.  Good luck for Monday.  Remember even if it is cancer, they can do amazing things these days.  Stay strong. I'm glad to hear you have a large family to support you.  x
