| | Re: Post-op 'complications'?
I just found this board. I had Lasik done four days ago. My doctor ( one of the most respected ophthamologists in the southeast) told be " you'll see great and be back to work the next day...piece of cake...". I got up off the table after surgery expecting all the wonderful blogs I had read...you know them - "WOW, I can read that clock on the wall!". Well, not me. I was looking through lemonade.
I said, Doc - what about all the glowing testmonies of people who get up and see wonderfully and all is well. Then he reminded me I was 51 years old. Funny- he didn't say anything about that in consultation.
So, I'm 20/25 in one eye and 20/80 in the other with halos, double vision in one eye, etc... I can't do my job and I'm typing this with some gosh-awful reading glasses that make me nauseated.
No I guess I'm looking at weeks to months of recovery ( they don't tell you that in consultation)....and drops every waking hour. This has been a very life altering and emotional experience for which I was not prepared.
Maybe in a few weeks I'll be glad I had it...right now I could kick myself - I feel helpless.
God bless you all.
