Hi Folks, hope the New Year is getting off to a good start for you, though I appreciate for some particularly those who have got the Flu virus it won't have. Fortunately as of yet I have had only a heav lingeringy cold.
Just thought I'd update how my on-going battle with GVHD is going with emphasis on my eyes. In December my left eye became painful and my appt at Manc Eye hospital cancelled. Typical of my luck. When I went 11th Jan was told had ulcer on cornea but good news was I was at top of list for cataract surgery. Hooray. But until ulcer heals no surgery on either eye. Boo. They put a 'bandage' in my eye in form of a contact lens and gave me anti biotic drops. So its on the mend. But Christmas , New Year has been challenging pain wise.
Yesterday I went to a blood donation centre in Liverpool for 2nd time to blood let so they can make me some autologous eye drops from my blood serum which help moisturise my dry eyes. Weird science indeed.
My mobility is still not great and the transplant process has weakened me considerably but I'm thankful to be here to write this.
Cheers for now and may your God go with you.
