    Really uncomfortable sitting now. I guess it's the healing process. Feeling closer to normal though. Starting to get a little "cabin fever".

      Debbie, I didn't have a graft or flap. Just a sutured incision. Since washing off with water is ordered after bathroom trips, I think a bidet would be great. You'd still need to dry off with a hair dryer on low. Now I'm going to try to find the private message place to see if I can work this site.

        I really don't know if I managed to get to the private messages yet. I'm a novice at navigating this site.

          Today is my 3rd day and it's been the most painful. Sitting is uncomfortable. I have to position myself on one hip or the other. Trying to keep the area clean and dry. Bathroom trips are very involved. I live in the southeast US. I'm a little nervous about putting personal info out there. Did you have to give your name to join the Facebook group?

            Debbie, that is what I had on Thurs, Jan 28. The pain has not been as bad as I anticipated, but it has been uncomfortable My incision is about 5-6 inches on one side. Bleeding was minimal. Bladder and bowel functions have not been affected at all. I have only taken ibuprofen for pain.

              I have not had my surgery yet. Needed to get some cardiology consults taken care of. The last is Monday-Jan 25. My surgery is scheduled for Thursday -Jan 28. I'm kinda scared about the discomfort and the uncertainty. It's difficult not being able to discuss with people. I just don't feel comfortable. My hairdresser made quite a bit of joking about it. I certainly didn't want to talk about it with my pastor even thou...

                Hi. I also have been diagnosed with EMPD in Nov,2015. I had thought the itching was due to yeast infections. My Gyn would treat me for yeast infections when I complained. When he retired and I started a new doc she immediately did a biopsy and diagnosed me with EMPD. I was referred to a Gyn oncologist. I'm scheduled for an excision on Jan 13,2016. I worry that I've gone undiagnosed for a few years and it may have sp...
