EOL: 29 stitches (update)

Not completely with it at the movement, so if this post makes any kind of sense at all then it’s purely an accident… much like when any post here at EOL makes some kind of sense, I guess.

As some of you know, I had my second (left) cornea transplant on Monday, and I’m happy to say that it wall went extremely well. I’m not sure why, but this time around it’s been (so far) a much less painful experience than the last one. It’ll be months before I have any idea of what kind of vision I’ll end up with as a result of this transplant, but it’s a pretty safe bet that It’ll be a vast improvement on what I was putting up with before the operation.

Oh, and for those playing at home, the current total is 29 stitches in my head. 16 in the left eye and I still have 13 in my right eye. So far the only stitches to have been removed are the 3 that worked themselves loose over the last 14 months or so, I have no idea when the rest will come out of the right eye, but it shouldn’t be any more than about 8 months or so… as for the 16 in the left eye, I’ll let you know in about 2 years.

Hopefully I’ll be back on deck in the next few days and regular posts will resume shortly.

(update) Sep 23

Having a bit more trouble than I’d bargained for, not so much with the recovery of my right eye, but with my left eye’s ability to manage the heavy load. So far my right eye has been doing pretty well, virtually no pain to speak of after the first couple of days, and even then it would probably be better described as ‘discomfort’.

I’ll get back to regular posting as soon as possible, but for now I’m still finding it hard to spend more than a few minutes at a time looking at a computer screen.

    Happy eyeday! Glad to hear cornea #2 is behaving itself so far.

  • Glad to hear it. I’ve been keeping an eye on the place while you’ve been gone. Nothing untoward to report.

    I know a girl who’s cornea was dislodged by a shuttlecock, spent two weeks in hospital. Full recovery though, so I guess we’re getting pretty good at this kind of surgery. And a good thing too, I’m waiting on my next Remote Viewing fix!
