Well, yesterdays review not so good. Id felt things were perhaps not going as well as the previous review but didnt want to say until the scan was done.
The oedema is worse, there is now some nerve damage, and the IOP is 23.
Consultant says she can see the inj work though so is willing to continue and im booked in for another 3. To deal with the raised IOP i now have betablocker drops twice a day. I know the raised IOP can be because of the inj so Im desperately hoping the drops work to enable the inj to continue (never thought id be saying that lol).
Dr says stress is definitely an issue as it raises bp and I have other health issues which may be related (no arterial pulse in left foot, for which Im having a scan on the 20th).
Had a good cry yesterday, feel fed up but it has spurred me to ring my occ. Health to see if they will support me reducing my hours at work. Also looking at taking previous pension early - and thinking of buying a shny new car while I can still see to drive lol ! Off now for a nice relaxing bath and a good book, fingers crossed the inj appt comes through quickly , shame there was no clinic on yesterday.
Hey ho, one foot in front of the other, keep going..............
