Going To Get Retina Re-attached - Update - 2/4

This AM. I hope it has not been too long since the onstart of this - one week.
I believe it will be an easy operation but recovery will be a pain as I will have to have my head bowed down for two weeks.
This is for the gas bubble injected into the eyeball for 'pushing' the retina against the wall for reattachment.


Let me get the next several rounds - of ice cream.

Hang in there Everett!! Follow Dr's orders... Hey maybe you can get a script for a massage table with the hole for the face in it! Then you could lay face down with a flat panel TV or laptop screen under you... ;-)

Yeah Everett, the biggest part is keeping your head down, that way the gas bubble stays against your retina and not toward your lens. Good luck!

Hang in there and do what you're supposed to do. My son, age 36 just went through cataract surgery and one month later had a detached retina. It pained me to see what he went through. Good luck.

69 SS, 350/300 h.p., M-20, 12 bolt, matching numbers.

re: Going To Get Retina Re-attached - Update - 2/4

Good Luck with it Everett. Been there done that. A detaching retina can give you a visual experience difficult to explain to those who haven't had one. Mine came on after my lenses were replaced. I was high risk, no choice, all the precautions and still had issues with both eyes but 5 years later now have no further problems with them.

re: Going To Get Retina Re-attached - Update - 2/4

It all comes together in the end Everett (pun intended). While bowing your head, just wear your Cubs hat and everyone will understand, "Poor guy, his team finally won". But really, godspeed to a quick recovery.

Good luck Everett. My next door neighbour went through the same thing, he is 75 years old. It worked out well and happy to have his vision!
