and I am going through chemo and radiation now.  I also have cancer in my vagina.  I am done the chemo for now but the radiation is killing me.  My vagina is red and raw and bleeding.  I am in so much pain.  I am using Anusol and pain meds.  I am also using Jeans Creme which is helping.  I take 4 sitz baths a day
Does anyone recommend anything to help the pain and the rawness and redness.???  I can barely pee mad
TIA, I have been in tears for days

Oh you poor thing. I can feel your pain. I have had bladder infections that hurt terribly and I know they couldn't begin to compare to what you are feeling. I don't have any idea at all what could help but I agree with Linda, keep after the doctors there has to be something they can do for you. Hugs of hoping you will find relief, Mary K.

Oh my, Michele,

That sound sooooooooo painful.

Wish that I could be of some help to you with some good advice but afraid I can't think of anything to help you.

Please know that I am sending prayers and thoughts your way.

Hang in there sweetie, it just HAS to get better for you.
