I don't know why they call it surgery when, in reality, it is an outpatient procedure! We arrived at 8:30 AM, I was taken into the pre-op room a little after 9, given a 15 minute prep and by 11:30 AM we were sitting in Denny's having breakfast.
What's surprising is that though, when looking in a mirror I can see my eyeball but outside of that I don't see through the patch. I am still waiting for my sexy black patch--oh well!
See Doc tomorrow to have patch taken off and discuss when to do left eye!
This happened on Monday, August 12 and I go back to him on Monday August 19 to discuss the other eye. I am still wearing the patch but only when I sleep.
Everything was a snap except the routine of the eye drops--take 3 different eye drops a day--one 3 times a day and the other two 4 times a day--you have to leave 5-10 minutes between drops--I made a schedule and just check it off when I take a drop.
I have mentioned my claustrophobic problem so Tuesday I have to be at the hospital at 8 AM (Is there an 8 AM?) which means I will be getting up at 6 but I'll be going back to sleep when they put me under.
WHAT IS ALL THIS NONSENSE OF DOING EVERYTHING IN THE MORNING?!?!? HEY DOCTORS, DON'T YOU KNOW THERE ARE AFTERNOONS????
