To see or not to see, part two

Well, I had the operation on Tuesday under sedation. Despite my fears, sedation was fine. I could hear the surgical team talking, but felt almost nothing. During the operation I had the sensation of looking into a kaleidoscope of red, green and purple patterns.

Just after the operation

I now have a gas bubble in my eye which will dissipate over about 4 weeks, during which time my vision will be blurred, and then we shall see how much I can see.

Meanwhile I had to spend the rest of Tuesday looking downwards at the floor, and for the next five days must spend 50 minutes of each hour lying on my right side. I have my Kindle set at large print, which is OK at arm’s length, and several books to catch up on

When I am upright for 10 minutes the eye gives the sort of pain you get after taking a large bite of ice cream. I have 3 bottles of eye drops to use 4 times a day. I will need to go back to Southampton for a progress review in a couple of weeks.

My dog is wondering what’s wrong and why he can’t have the sofa?

  1. Rocking the Pirate Look there, General! Have you considered a life at sea, and do you still have your Bicorne? 🙂 Glad to hear that the procedure went well.

    Regards, Chris
