I really can't tell where my "squeezing" is coming from. It's more like the "old spasms" which makes me very uncomfortable. As for the tearing I think I had that for 2 - 3 months or so. Benadryl helped it a lot as well as the itching. Did you ever try it?

I hate to hear that the squeezing feels like the old spasms. I hope that the botox relieves them. I don't notice any squeezing from my upper lids-maybe a little from my forehead but mostly my lower lids are pulling up, especially my right one. It seems to come and go throughout the day. The tearing and itching are what is driving me crazy right now. I'm 3 months post-op. I had always taken Benadryl prior to the surgery-50mg three to four times a day. After the surgery, I got it down to 25mg two or three times a day. I've started to increase it again to help with the itching and tearing but it surprisingly doesn't seem to have much effect on it. I'm back to taking 50mg three times a day. You'd think that I would be totally dried out but the tears just stream down my face.
I'm beginning to wish now that I hadn't agreed to have the upper tear ducts cauterized (closed). I have never had a dry eye problem but we discussed it before surgery and decided to do it as a preventative measure to counteract any dry eye conditions from the surgery. I'm giving some thought to having them re-opened. I'll wait a while longer before I jump into that. I'm a scaredy cat, anyway.
Thanks for the info. Sorry that you missed the party.
