Hello all, I had my 6th Eylea injection in BOTH eyes on Wednesday. Shortly after leaving the office the pain was bad but about 3 hours later the pain intensified with deep shooting pains every 5 seconds in my left eye! Nurse told me to take 2 alieve and 1 Tylenol and things would be better the next day. The pain got worse so I called back for pain medicine and they wouldn't. The Dr. said I had a scratched cornea and called me in a salve of steroid and antibiotic but NO pain medicine. I called the pharmacy and asked about pain meds. They told me to take 1 1/2 Tylenol with codeine and 2 ibuprofen. I had some Tylenol with codeine to use, thank god. I took them every 4 hours and the nightmare didn't end until 2am!
What the HELL! I'm going to have a talk with my dr. Why didn't he ever prepared me for something like this? I should have had this at the house just incase. I had to use an eye patch and keep eye closed for 2 days! I also had to keep my right eye closed because it caused the left eye to HURT! I'm pissed
