Surgery complications

I had mention that I was having cataract surgery. The surgery was yesterday and didn't go all that good. Due to detached retina a few years ago it complicated the cataract surgery. Something about the membrane that holds the lens in had been compromised. Went for day after surgery appointment this morning and was put on 100% bed rest. Can sit in recliner some, but must limit all movements to a minimum. Doc actually has limited how much I walk, no driving. As I'm asking doctor how long till I can ride my wife throws a waded up piece of paper at me. The doctor laughed and just said we'll discuss later. Next appointment is Monday. Limited light computer work is OK, so I will be checking forum every so often, but not much. Doc said if I want any chance of eye usefulness in future I must do as told. All of this really sucks, I'm pissed off and depressed at same time. The odds of losing usefulness of my right eye is very high. Those of you want, a prayer would be comforting. Thanks to all.

well that sucks. Weird he said to limit your walking/driving but light computer use is ok when considering that it was eye surgery that was done. *idunno*.

Perhaps to minimize blood pressure in the eye...

Thanks all. It all has to do with keeping eye pressure and eye movement down during this healing time. Have patch over bad eye. Using 4 different drops at different times thru out day. He had to put ring in eye ball to hold in new lense. It's amazing what they can do now days. Wife is monitoring my screen time, she says that's all for now. 😇

SUCKS is an understatement! Really sorry to hear it, Les. Hope to God the healing process is successful and you have good use of the eye in the long term. Wishing you patience and good luck while you rest and heal up. Take good care of yourself and listen to your wife!!!

Prayers to you and your family from Ohio! I always marvel at the advancements in medicine that grow everyday! I always wonder how they come up with the advancements. My brother had diabetes since age 3. 30 some years later he was insulin dependent with failing kidneys on the verge of dialysis. He gets on a transplant list and low and behold in a span of 12 hours he gets a new pancreas and new kidney! God does provide!

Take care!
