I've been out of town to a funeral or I could've chimed in to reassure you it's a piece of cake.  I had both eyes done years apart by different doctors and it's like someone washed the windows after 20 years of grime build-up.  It's fantastic!  Glad you're done, Marge.  

Sharon, go do it.  You'll not regret it.

I'm a little late seeing this, but just wanted
to say that I'm glad it went well, Marge...
and glad you're doing okay...

Checking back in and thanking you all for your kind thoughts~

The good news is that the incision looks good and the lens placement is good ... the not so 'piece of cake' that I'm having is that there is some really super irritation going on that even the doctors don't fully understand at this point~
It just feels like I have something in my eye that is causing me quite a bit of uncomfortable pain~

One area of the eye is just super irritated, not infected, just highly irritated ... causing pain~
Two confering surgeons have now changed my eye drops and the frequency of them~

I was on a total of five different eye drops, but they have now reduced that to three meds and one more for lubrication of the eye~

I'm a good patient and am trying very hard to do the meds religiously ...
I'll be okay, just right now it doesn't feel like it~

Keep the prayers up, please~
*Huglets* to all of you~
~*Marge*~

aw hun...

I don't know what doctor's orders are about tears, so I'll just light the candle and pray for your spirits, and let the doc tell you what to do about the rest.

Have a hug, from one who appreciates your eyes.

Dearest Marge,

Hang in there! Some people have different outcomes to the same type of surgery. Your doctors are on top of it all and I am sure you will be feeling better soon. I am sorry about the pain and irritation you are experiencing. I would have thought it was a "piece of cake." We all do heal differently. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Love, Patricia

Dear Marge:

I have had a feeling things were not quite what we all want for you!  I'm so sorry! I do hope the doctors are on the right track now and you will notice improvement right away. It must be so irritating for you and scary too!!

Love you
Betty lou

Oh Marge, I am so sorry that you are not okay by now.  I too had a terrible pain and irritation shortly after my first eye operation.  I scared the doctor he was afraid it was an infection.  It wasn't and the medicine he gave me took care of it.  Hope yours works as well.  Love, Joyce

Dearest ((((((Marge))))), I am sorry to hear of your pain due to irritation. I will focus on your eyes with a loving touch of healing energy, giving grace for your perfect recovery.
It's true we react all differently to certain treatments. I'll include the doctors in my prayers so that they will have clarity with regard to what has to be used and done.
All my love and big hugs.

I'm sure it doesn't seem like "a piece of cake" when you have eye pain.  I'm sorry you're experiencing this unfortunate outcome and pray it will be shortlived, Marge.

I'd said it was "a piece of cake" without revealing my problem following the first removal.  That Dr. put stitches in (they no longer do)and scratched the retina when removing them.  That stung and burned more than I can express.  A series of drops and time healed it.  I didn't mention it as I doubt any doctors still use the stitches and aside from that unfortunate incident, both removals were a piece of cake.

God bless,
  Rae

Friends~
I would appreciate further prayer vigil please~

Will be back in to play when I can ...
for now I've got doctor's orders to follow
and can't spend much time on here.

Having a small problem with my eye, but
have the utmost confidence in my team of doctor's and their dedication to getting me over the hump~
Love~
~*Marge*~

Please keep me in your thoughts~
I have another appointment tomorrow afternoon and hope to hear some good news~
*fingers crossed*

These continuous eye drops are a pain in the patookus,
but I'm keeping up the administering of them as instructed~

I will try to report back as soon as I am able with an update~
