Hello, I was wondering if there is someone out there with some personal experience with multiple vitrectomy surgeries.
a little history, I have had type 1 diabetes for 32 years and not one issue until this situation. I have a vitrectomy done in June 2013 and had to have my eye drained again in July. I did what the doctor asked and have kept my activity to a almost nothing. I was trying to not cause more pressure in my eye. I actually went to the eye specialist 2 weeks ago and he said everything looks good and appeared my eye was healed. My vision went from about 10% to about 90% and things were well on track.
This past Saturday, I woke up with spots in my eye and over the course of 4 or 5 hours my vision is now back to what it was like in June.
I have been told by the doctor to just be patient and we will monitor it for a few months. arrgh.
Just wondering if anyone had similar experiences and maybe some tips on how to deal with this.
