Re: Detached retina recovery question
Well, it's been 20 years since I had my detached retina, with vitrectomy having the gas bubble in the eye, but it does take time for the bubble to be replaced by your own body fuids. It's slow going, plus the surgery itself will take some time for the eye to heal completely. I know it's frustrating waiting....and wondering, but just take it one day at a time, do everything you are supposed to do and the healing will progress.
By the way, I had my right retina detach 4 times in less than 4 months. It's been doing fine ever since. It's just one of those things where you have to be patient, as it's pretty major trauma to the eye having the surgery done. At 5 weeks, you've got a ways to go before the eye has totally recovered from the surgery.
