It's going to take a bit longer yet.....:(

Hi all
Another quick update on "the situation"..........in 2 words........NOT GOOD in fact you could even say BAD!

Original hole is still sealed but the remaining fluid has not been resorbed - it also hasn't got any bigger so may still not be another hole. Either way the consultant is not happy to leave it any longer so I'm off to theatre again tomorrow. This will apparently involve a larger band being placed in my eye - not a major problem in itself but it will be located under the muscle at the outer corner of the eye so will affect the ability of the eye to move side to side at least until it gets used to the band being there. Apparently this can take up to 3 months! So as you can imagine I am NOT in a happy state.
I think what is making it worse is that the vision in that eye has been getting better with each passing day and the thought of going back to square one again (and for longer this time too) is just so annoying & depressing.

I suppose I must look at the long term & if this is what is needed to regain my sight properly I just have to live with it in the short term - It's just SO flaming hard to look at it in a positive manner.

Anyway, I'm just down in the dumps so will stop boring you all with my woes..hopefully the next update will be a good one LOL!

So sorry to hear your news.

Hang in there and hopefully, this will be exactly what is needed to have the result you want. It must be very trying for you.

Sending you lots of hugs and healing thoughts,

Trayna, I can't imagine what you're going through. I think about you often, and I pray for your quick and complete recovery.

I don't know if this will help you think positive or not, but detached retina often leads to blindness-- you were obviously lucky in getting to the hospital soon enough, and you're extremely lucky that you are still able to see. I know the recovery process is a bummer, but it's so much better than what could have happened.

Hugs!

Sorry to hear about your eye and news, I myself have been in the hospital for the last week with a loved one and am going back tomorrow to spend the next week with her. I hope for you a speedy recovery and a healthy one.
