Re: salzman nodules questions
My scar tissue is at the top of my eyes which causes the eye lid to scrape allong the eye and cause more abraisions which then turn into ulcers and finally scar tissue. At least that's how my doctor described it. He told me he could give me rewetting drops to keep my eyes lubricated however, he couldn't garantee that I wouldn't get another abraision, ulcer and finally scar tissue. He informed me of the proceedure 6 years ago and well as you can see, it finally took a drastic turn to where I was ready to rip my eye ballls out and just go blind and that's what made my decision to finally have surgery.
Where do you live and where was your surgery performed?? I live in Chicago, IL and my surgery will be performed at Saint Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, IL.
It has been comforting to read other peoples experiences with this type of surgery over the internet and to hear the success stories. After hearing what the procedure was to remove the scar tissue 6 years ago, there was no way I was having that type of surgery done to my eyes and now, after I have done the research, I wish I would have done the surgery 6 years ago. Oh well, better late than never, that's one of my mottos. Please keep in touch with me with regards to your healing. How long was it before you returned back to work??
My job is already setting me up with FMLA leave. I carried 10 days of vacation time over from last year to this year so I wouldn't have to borrow any days. As you can see, I'm trying to put a time line on how soon I will recover and be able to go back to work. Yes I know, everyone is different and will react differently to this type of surgery.
Thanks for sharing your experience with me, it has truly been helpful.
