If I was to have written this the evening of my surgery (Tuesday) it would have said:
IT HURTS! I LOOK TERRIBLE AND FEEL WORSE.
By yesterday afternoon things had greatly improved. The post-op showed that the cornea was adhering - one of the biggest potential problems, it seems. The Dr. said everything looks fine and I will be seeing him again March 3.
If I cover my good eye I can see shapes which are getting more clear all the time, although I still don't see any detail with that eye.
I'll write more either later today or tomorrow. This is the first time I've turned my computer on, and the first time I've used my reading glasses. Other than feeling really tired (maybe because of the pain medication I'm taking) I feel great. And speaking of pain, I would call it that rather than "discomfort". Msybe it's because I'm getting older but I felt more pain than I expected to, especially during the surgical process. Oh well, it's past me now and I'm just going to concentrate on getting better every day. I hope that when I have the other eye done I can be completely "out" or at least more sedated.
I have lots of thoughts to pass along, but will hold them for later.
