What a week! I feel so drained and can't face doing anything. Since January I have had treatment for Glaucoma which has involved several procedures such as injections into my eyes and laser surgery. Also 2 operations. I have completely lost the sight in my right eye and now they are trying to save the sight in my left. I may lose my driving licence due to lack of vision, but I will tackle that later, need to get through Christmas first.
Went to the hospital on Tuesday. The previous appointment was quite doom and gloom, they were trying to preserve the vision in my left eye but the consultant was not hopeful. Well the consultant I saw (my favourite of the 3 that I see) was a lot more positive and was pleased with how my eye had recovered from the last op. He doesn't need to see me until January. Woohoo!
I have also had a problem with my big toe for 2 years. I am now on my third different antibiotic. The podiatrist sent me for an x-ray on Monday. Yesterday I got a phonecall from my GP who said that the x-ray had shown that I have a problem with the bone and needed IV antibiotics. Panic! I had an appointment with the podiatrist at the hospital (my 2nd home) and the Dr was saying that if it was that bad I needed to see an orthopaedist - PANIC!!! He then looked at the x-ray and said oh it's not as bad as we thought take antibiotics for 6 weeks and we'll see you in January. Phew.
Just so terrified by all this. Will I go blind? Will I lose my toe?
