What the specialist said

Saw my specialist today.

He's agreed with me that enough is enough. I believe his words were, "We tried and it's just not working, so let's just take the implant out and draw a line under the whole bad experience!"

He can't fit me in until next week though. So for now he's sent me home with antibiotics, eye patches and pain killers. So, I'm going in hospital a week on Wednesday (Nov 5th) to have the op the Thursday (Nov 6th). I can't go in before because - with him being away - his lists are already cramned full until then.

He'd really hoped to keep the implant in because it helps to give a better cosmetic result when the artificial eye goes in, but it seems like my eye socket really doesn't want that implant. And we all agree that I've gone through enough and it's time to just admit defeat and take the implant out.

Anyway, I'm tired so I'm going to let this do for now. Enjoy whatever's left of your day. :)

I'm sorry the implant has to be removed, but it sounds like you will be better off without it at this point. Good luck!

Im with Chicago...sorry that it has to be removed but you'll definitely be better off without it if it's causing all these problems.

If the third time wasn't the charm, perhaps there was a miscount... no... there's no way around it - this eye surgery has not gone smoothly - but I do hope this time around its fixed once and for all.

I've wanted your email for a while too. And the shoulder continues to heal slowly - some days, especially after PT its not comfortable - but other days I'm getting there.

You have been through so much! Enough is enough. It is a shame that the specialist couldn't work you in sooner.

Thanks Iggy & Punkn. :)

Iggy:

I'm so happy to hear you won't have to go through all that again. I think you are doing the right thing.
