So Dissapointed

Yesterday, I thought that I was going to have the laser treatment done for the "secondary cataracts", but it turned out that I have to go to the hospital for it. So, again, I have to wait until next week for it. I am so sick of this whole thing, it has been going on for months and months. On top of it all, some other problems have turned out and I must see more specialists next week. I am not a happy camper to say the least. But soldier on, I must. I feel like the little engine that could.

Oh gosh, makes you wanna scream when things don't go as scheduled - especially for very important appointments like that. Hang in there just a little longer!

Just keep your head up and keep a positive attitude! You'll get through this soon enough and hopefully have everything fixed with your eyes!

@marlina I hope that blurriness goes away soon! It's not very fun when you can't see life very clearly. That's kind of what I 'm experiencing now, since my vision has deteriorated and I haven't gotten my new glasses yet.

@marlina I know, waiting for anything is agonizing. I had a biopsy done in early November. The doctor called me two weeks later that I needed further surgery (minor day surgery). Then it was wait for a call letting me know when and where. Next came the wait for the actual day surgery...to be followed by an extra wait to have the stitch s removed (Christmas and New Years intervened). Finally the stitches were removed and I'm finished with the entire process. Knowing how this can sometimes drag our, two. On the from start to finish really wasn't long, but it seemed endless.

@Morleyhunt I know perfectly well what you mean by that having gone through so many times with surgeries. Glad that you are done with this one.

Don't worry everything will become alright. I think laser treatment is the best for the cataract surgery

I've been wishing to have my vision corrected by LASIK surgery so I won't be wearing glasses anymore to be able to read but it's very costly. I hope you'll have a successful laser treatment sooner.

I accompanied my mother once to the hospital for cataract surgery. The surgery was a success and my mother could again have a good eyesight. I hope the surgery turns out positive for you
