i've just recently had a check up with my doctor who performed a laparoscopy on me and realised i didnt have anything wrong with me inside i had LS. i have also been going to the gum clinic at my local hospital as i get free creams etc there ( i am a student !!! )
so when i first went to see my doctor on thursday (6 weeks after my op) he told me to jsut be using the cream twice weekly and now to start using dilators because i am quite narrow. he also gave me instillagel which is a lube with anesthetic in it to help with sex.
i then went to see the doctor at the gum clinic and she gave me completely different advice!! she said i should be using the dermovate in ointment form, so it stays on longer than cream and to not use instillagel as in will sting because it is alcohol based. she also told me to use the ointment twice a day for two weeks and then nightly until i see her in june! and to not use the dilators because i am still sore, it'll only tear me more!
they are both specialists and i have check up with them both in a couple of months. i dont know if its rude that i've seen two people but i was wondering what treatment everyone else is on, cream or ointment? and any advice on dilators? and has anyone used instillagel? not sure if its the same for everyone else, but i can't use lube because it stings me , i normally just use olive oil!!!!! i tried a lube called 'yes' for senstive skin but that even stings.
i'm very confused with whos advice to take , always wondered whetehr it is dangerous to use steriod for long time. but i think it makes sense to use the ointment more and then start using dilators when the skin is softened up.
anyones advice would be great
hope everyones ok , sending lots of love out to you all!
