I don't know exactly where to post this, but today I'm having Cataract surgery on the one eye that I see with. I also need that same surgery in the basically useless left eye. I'm not sure if I can see after the surgery at all, let alone be able to go online, watch tv, or even EAT. Hopefully, I'll have some sight shortly afterwards, but how quickly my eyesight returns is a guess at this point. Usually it's hours to a few days, but that's never my luck. So for what it's worth I'll be off line from 1pm to hopefully just the rest of the day, but who knows.
After both surgeries, I'm supposed to start injections in both eyes for my Retina Edema and now Molecular Degeneration. Yeah, it just keeps on getting worse. I just can't catch a break.
Wish me luck guys, I'm a little nervous about these procedures.
Thanks for the all the support and it's truly welcomed.
Eye Surgery update.
Well guys, my surgery was postponed till Aug 24 due to more complications. My left eye after evaluation by the surgeon, which now makes the 3rd doctor to exam it and the various scans, has been removed from the equation. The Retina damage is far to great to allow for any vision in the center of the eye, so I only have some vision around the circumference. The pressure from the Cataract surgery could further damage the Retina as will the Molecular Degeneration over time. So the focus now is on the right eye.
And here lies another set of complications. I also have the Retina Edema in that eye's Retina, but the bubbles of blood and liquid never ruptured so there's no swelling. For reasons that no one can explain, those liquid filled bubbles seem to come and go on their own, and draining them isn't an option as they just reappear on their own. They can only do the Cataract surgery when there's no bubbles. Right now there's just one small one that seems to be in the process of draining itself. So they're holding off on the surgery till Aug 24th. I just have to hope that the timing works out.
Right now the best I can expect is much better and brighter vision, but I'm still most likely going to need glasses, just not as strong of a prescription, and of course reading glasses, but I should be able to buy them as non prescription.
Honestly guys, I just can't seem to get a break with this. And just to make it a true family matter, my wife has her orientation meeting with the surgeon as she also have Cataracts in both eyes. I keep on telling her to find her own disease and not copy me.
Ben, I'm looking forward to 8/24 and getting the best eyesight I can out of my one good eye. Can't wait to actually see all the little details that I screw up, and most of all I'll have a 50/50 chance at beating the Carpet Monster
