Well, I survived my first set of injections. It wasn't as painful as I thought it might be, but my left eye is bruising. The doctor says that is because I tend to bleed and if I had told him that before he started, he would have applied ice packs to my eyes before he started. I know I tend to bleed more than others but I hadn't realized I needed to be concerned for this. Anyway, my family have said that it looks like you can see my eyes a little better already. I didn't read the BB before I went to the appt so I didn't get to ask about the EMLA cream but I can ask when I go to see the doctor in May to let him know how I am progressing. Thanks for the info on the Lacrilube (?) and the eye drops. I already use the eyedrops several times a day for dry eyes.
Will try to check back tomorrow to let you know if I look like I have done battle with a boxer. I bought a cool mask for my eyes as well as a night mask since the doctor said I may experience having my eyes not close all of the way as a possible side effect.
Gotta go for now and help my daughter with a spreadsheet for one of her classes. Take care...and thanks so much for the moral support.
