Eye Surgery

It’s going to be more complicated than the cataract surgery last time, the retina specialist said this morning. More invasive. Full anesthesia, which is good. I won’t be squinting and damaging more tissue and they won’t have to tie my hands down again. Not messing with the retina, which is fine, just that a retina surgeon has more experience at meticulous work inside the eye. He’s going to try and save the new lens the cataract surgeon installed but may have to replace it, which will take longer. But I won’t care because I’ll be out of it. So we’re off to the races on March 1. Quite an adventure for a surgery virgin

  1. Good luck with the surgery and hope everything works out for you.

  2. I hope, everything will be alright. Just remember not to haggle with the doc. It’s not the time for ‘an eye for an eye.’ (I hope the joke isn’t too distasteful. It’s almost got an antisemitic whiff.)

  3. I was very respectful.
