Deda, my company is gone. The children were well behaved as I had a sack of surprises for them and that kept them busy. They were very mindful of my incision too. It was a good visit. When my husband had that costochondritis his cleared up with Lodine. Maybe your Dr will give it to you. You will have to eat food with it or it will really tear your stomach up. The LS I have went misdiagnosed for about 5 yrs thus now I am fused almost to the utrethra. And cannot have sex at all as the vaginal opening is too small now. Also I have no labia minora , they have absorbed into the labia majora. I have a VERY UNDERSTANDING husband. And guess who else has LS?? My 8 yr old granddaughter , the one that was here today and the one I am so close to. She was diagnosed at 6 yrs old. sigh. Mine is under control as far as the itching goes, I use Temovate once on Sat. and once on Sun, a pea sized amout. There is no cure of course .Get a load of my family history. My brother has RA , his 3 daughters have Graves and Hashimotos , my sister has Fibro, my daughter has Lupus and Hashimotos, her daughter has LS and Asthma.I have High blood pressure, Graves, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis with referred pain to my legs and feet which is neuropathy , oh and I have a bulging disk between L4 and L5. I also have Osteoporosis, am an insomniac. have nutcracker esophagus and now colon cancer. How about that line up. Boy do I get tired of all this. What all do you have?Lia ........PS ......Deda ,I just hit quick reply and mine have always gone thru .
