I went in for a follow-up on my June 2018 procedure.
My retina specialist’s team was just grinning ear to ear. My left eye is looking so good that my doc said that I’m back to the once a year visits that are standard for type 1 diabetics.
That was great to hear but also a bit troublesome because I’m now codependent on my retina specialist, Dr. B, and his team. They’re awesome. I’m now a walking testament to that fact. To that end, he compromised and let me make an appointment for 9 months out instead of 12.
After my June vitrectomy, I needed to have cataract surgery because the gas they put in your eye will ruin the lens you were born with. I had that surgery in October. I have a slight shadow around where the macular hole was. That’s normal too.
I was anxious and moody but that has more to do with me searching for a new job than with how I’ve recovered.
I’m happy, and I’ve made a full and impressive recovery. I’m definitely thankful for that.
