Cloudy Vision after macular pucker surgery

I recently undergone a vitrectomy to peel the membrane for macular pucker 3 days ago. Doctor put gas bubble that was supposed to last for 3 days. Since I have a longer eyeball than normal, the gas bubble is still there, however, drops to about 35%.
My concern is vision is constantly worse than before surgery. Before the operation, my vision is 20/200, but that is due to the distortion in the central vision, everything is very clear. However, now, the bubble has gone down below my central vision, everything above the bubble remains cloudy, i can only recognize hand movement, not even count my finger.
Please help me share your recovery experience. I am very worried now. I had vitrectomy before for retinal detachment, however, as the buble went down, I was able to see clear on top of it, also, immediately the day after the RD surgery, I was able to count finger (in fact, i could see the tiny dust particles on my glasses very clearly). I dont know what happens this time.
Thank you very much for any opinions.
