It just dawned on me that I didn’t post about my oncology visit. Honestly, I forgot all about being nervous because I had some other issues I was dealing with, and I was actually quite happy to get to go see him. See below the cut for more posts about my lady bits.
So, the yeast infection that I got from taking the evil prednisone had me in misery. I was actully happy to get to the gyno…at that point I would have seen any gyno.
Turns out, I did in fact have a horrible yeast infection. In fact, I was so unbelievably sore, he couldn’t get the speculem in at all. I literally screamed in pain. Poor man. He actually tried twice, and honestly, if my feet had not been in stirups, I may have kicked him in the head. There’s already so much atrophy down there, and then kick in a yeast infection and wow.
At any rate, my oncologist told me that prednisone in people who have had the extent of radiation in the area I have tend to get monsterous yeast infections as a result, and he told me not to take it again. Well, NOW you tell me. *itch*.
The yeast infection was so bad it took three rounds of diflucan to get rid of it, and I still have some discomfort down there.
UGH – I just want a NORMAL vajayjay!
