Cornera Transplant Over

Friday, November 20, 2015

Thursday I finally got my new cornea in my right eye. I have not had much pain--just a little touchiness and very sensitive to light today. This morning Dr. Stackhouse took off the bandage/shield, was very pleased with how things looked, and told me, only 16 stitches. Then he decided I needed to put a contact on that eye. My first thought was NO as I had already told them I was NOT going to attempt to wear contacts again as I had scratched my eye years ago when I tried to wear them and my thought was a definite NO WAY!!! Then he said is was a soft lens and had nothing to do with vision, just to make sure there wasn't any leakage (?). I admit, I did not really understand that but said ok then. It did not hurt, and if I loose this contact before I see the Dr. on Monday, that is ok. I do not take it in or our--just leave it alone. I can do this.

Now my vision is almost 0 right now but it takes "time," just how much, I don't know and don't think he knows either but I will give it "time."

I will keep ya'll updated at least weekly and how things progress.

Hope everyone has a great day.

    SO glad it went well, and things sound even better as far as surgery! The prayers continue to work....John and I will continue the prayers, as always....you are a GREAT trooper! It FREAKS me out just reading about it so, YOU are braver than I! I TRIED contacts long ago too and didn't work...they didn't tell me before that I have astigmatism....DUH so they couldn't be worn by me...I was ticked...they should have KNOWN that!

    WAY TO go, LK and blessings and prayer and emoticon to you! You are gonna be 100% SOON!

    Sounds like things are going well.
    Just in case you read this or have a reader !!..
    I finally got brave enough today to start cutting up my material to build a denim rag quilt for my Great Grandson.. Once I made the first cut... it was not quite so traumatic an exercise for me.
    Be well.
