I"m so sorry. All I can say is WOW and my mouth is hanging open. You have really had it tough. I know that must have been really scary to experience all of that. My skin is blotchy now, enlarged pores, and the skin doesn't look right. I just feel like I look so much older. I do have some serious bags under my eyes. But I can't compete with your post. Have you tried the 6,000 mgs of Vitamin C and L-lysine per day to try and build the collagen back up?
