Hope you are all well.
Two weeks ago I was diagnosed with myopic CNV in my left eye, I went through my first injection last week - and then had a few trips back to the hospital for some minor complications (nodular episcleritis, and then very high eye pressure due to the steroid drops to treat the inflammation) - what a couple of weeks have been! it's going better now and today I put my contact lenses on after 2 weeks - whoohoo!!
Now that things are going in the right direction, I thought I can focus on less intense thoughts and so I have a question on working out and wearing make-up. Do you guys work out during treatment (by this I mean when you are having eye injections) or only after your doctor have assessed there is no longer on-going haemorrhage? What kind of exercises do you do? My doctor told me I am off intense work-outs for life, essentially I can only run-cycle-swim. Have anyone tried low impact workout like barre/pilates (being careful not to put your head down)?
Do you wear make-up? If so, how long after the injection do you wait? I am a bit scared of applying mascara and also the thought of taking make up off after having eye injections feels weird. It would be great to hear stories about how you deal with normal life things like workouts and make-up.
Any other tip is greatly welcome, so I stop browsing the internet and get scared! 😬
Sending you virtual hugs!
