Re: vitrectomy surgery for macular
I was diagnosed with a full thickness macular hole in my right eye too. I had a vitrectomy in January of this year. I am still recovering from this surgery. I had a gas bubble that didn't dissolve for 8 weeks. My Dr used a long acting bubble. It was just very annoying but I thought once the bubble was gone everything would be fine, nott. The bubble dissolved just 2 weeks ago but my eye still feels like I have a blurb blocking my vision. I have no peripheral vision, side vision. I went to the doctor this week at 10 weeks post op and the doctor told me the periperal vision may or may not get better so in other words, deal with it. I certainly wasn't expecting anything like this before my surgery. I was told about all the risks and my doctor thought for sure I would come out of this with flying colors. I am hoping to regain the peripheral vision but I guess there's a chance I might not. I have to think positive but I honestly don't think I'll have that vision back. I don't mean to scare you but ask your doctor lots of questions. The surgery itself is not painful in the least. I jus turned 62 and am in fairly good health. I also developed a cataract 2 weeks after my vitrectomy and will have to have that removed at least 6 months or more from now. Anyway take care and don't forget to ask questions.
