what does it mean if you are able to see the gas bubble a week after vitrectomy?
So klutzy me managed to get a detached retina in my left eye, so I had vitrectomy or the gas bubble surgery about a week ago. Just today or yesterday I noticed that I see the outline of a circle ( or black ring). I'm guessing this is the gas bubble I see. Is this normal or should I be concerned?
Other factors to inform you more: young healthy female in her 20s, medications that I use are adderall and birth control, currently going through a rough time ( death of a grandparent) so I'm not sure if stress or crying might affect healing, near sighted (before surgery as well), I do not have diabetes or any other major health issues (thank the godzees)
If anyone has insight on what to expect as far as vision changes and what symptoms I should be concerned about, I'm as curious as a cat. Thanks
