Default Systic Lymphangioma here!

Howdy one and all, I'm Kevin. I'm 18 years old and have been living with systic lymphangioma since I was born, it's given me a lot of confidence issues and such. I've got a lot of stories revolving around it but hate to bore you all with emotional stuff. I'm going in for possible laser surgery next month, kinda nervous and scared.

Welcome to the group.

I hope your surgery will go well. It does not hurt to bad. Take something with you to the appointment to try to take your mind off of the surgery while it is in process.

Good luck and please keep us updated.

I was told that for the surgery I'd be numbed or put to sleep until surgery is finished so that I won't have to feel the pain at all. Because I'm really sensitive to touch so they'd have to knock me out.
