VINIII laser surgery

I am a married mother of 2, and I am scheduled for VINIII laser surgery (peri-clitoral) and am wondering about the recovery time and pain. Any advice or wisdom would be appreciated! I have feeling pretty alone with this diagnosis.

You are not alone!  I have had surgery twice for VIN III.  First time was combined cutting and lasering.  They cut ALL of the labia minora away.  The lasering I feel took a little longer.  It gets "weepy".  I had surgical "glue" on the parts where they cut away and also had stitches.  I'm all for the "cutting" vs. laser.  Laser they cannot get a pathology report because everything is burned off.  You will be ok.  Second one was more of the skin surrounding the vagina and part of the clitoris.
