Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the possibility of the warts being inside! Some things I've read say "don't worry about it" others list how their colon was "carpeted" and had to undergo several surgeries. Should I have it checked by a colon rectal specialist...or could this possibly transfer the virus inside?
Thank you, For me to see a colorectal specialist it isXXXXXand likely a month out. These things hurt so much! I discovered a web site called Daily Strength. Wow some people have it so bad. I wonder how many commit suicide from this or other very painful things that they can't talk about. I think that site must help and support people. I just wish that there was a better solution. I am incapacitated with pain. I just woke up from it at 5am and I took half a valium last night. I hope I don't have to keep doing that! I will see a dermatologist on Monday. I can't wait. Thank you again!
A dermatologist should be able to help you in the short term, and may be able to do a digital examination of your anal canal but if concerned about internal warts then you may need to schedule an appointment with a colorectal doctor which is a bit of a delay.
I hope this was helpful, please rate my answer if so or use reply.
FYI - a Proctologist recommended getting the Gardasil for me. She said that it has been shown to reduce re occurrences/outbreaks. However the health dept. would not give them to anyone over 26
Also I switched to Aldera from Veregen. My warts are multiplying under Veregen use.
Sorry about that.
So to recap, gardasil has restrictions due to studies not showing any benefit in protection against HPV related CIN changes in patients over 26. The arguement is that by age 26, sexually active patients are already likely to be infected.
Doctors can use drugs outside licensing restrictions, however they then take the liability for any side effects or problems. The proctologist may want to prescribe it but unlikely that your insurance will cover it.
Switching from aldera to veregen has not been successful for you, so you should consider a return to aldera if this has shown results before.
