    Hey, Everyone, thought I would post my experience starting Week 3.  It is true that the pain really starts after 2 weeks. My face definitely looks like a burn victim and I got a cold sore by the side of my mouth.  The good news is that the pain is really intense for only 10-15 minutes and I found that using a fan really helps.

      Thanks for your answer.  It's awesome to have this support group.  You just don't have to feel ALONE in this. Friday will be my 2-week entry and I expect the bomb to drop after that. Hope I can help someone along the way.

No turning back.  "This too shall pass".  I will probably have questions as time goes on since I'm only in my 2nd day.  Oh here's one:&...

              Hope all turned out well for you. Don't even know if you will get this but, I'm scared. Just started Efudex and feel like I'm jumping into a pit of hell.  Only encouragement is that you guys went through the firey furnace and came out.
