first tx of 36yo w/ PWS on face and chest
I'm posting for my husband. he's scheduled tomorrow for his first laser tx on a large PWS on the lower half of his right face down to midchest.
the PWS also is in his throat but they're not tx that.
My husband is very nervous. he hasn't had any treatments done until now, basically because 20 years ago he had been told that the scarring could be worse than the birthmark.
He's going to Dr Arndt in Boston.
I think his biggest concern is that it will end up looking worse.
at this point it has started to thicken and is dark purple.
he has been told to shave all the hair off the affected areas, as it will be burned anyway.
any words of wisdom I can share with him?
ETA: last year after some severe headaches he got an MRI and SWS was ruled out.
