Unfortunately not yet.
Another afternoon at Southampton Hospital, where we discovered by flashing lights, detailed photography and ultra-sound that the surgery two weeks ago was not entirely successful. The retina in my left eye has not re-attached, so further surgery is needed next week.
Last time they inserted a bubble of gas to put pressure on the retina. Next time they will try a bubble of oil, which will need to be removed later. I do hope that I don’t have spend another five days prone, particularly as I will miss the last weekend of the flat season at Newbury racecourse.
Apparently I have also developed a cataract which will need further surgery in the future.
Ho hum. At least it’s only inconvenient, not painful or life-threatening.

Sorry to hear that. I hope it gets sorted quickly.
It’s put the break on my 3mm painting project.
Brake – not break!
Hope things go well, Paul.
