Ok, well this past Wednesday when I left my specialist's office, I had learned further info of what is exactly involved in the entire process of a cornea transplant - I fuess that info maybe was explained to me years ago ( after all, this was my fourth time) actually I probably should have known but in the whole process maybe I forgot that part.
I guess I always thought that even tho it is a intricate surgery, it just involved taking my old bad cornea out and then putting in the donor tissue then of couse there was always the possibility of the new cornea being rejected but as of now rejection is not the issue with me - no, that is a relatively easy problem to take care compared to the issue I am dealing with now altho it too is nothing new to me' my vision has improved and as I said, no signs of rejection of the new cornea however after the new cornea is put in place, I still had to regrow my own tissue to cover the donor cornea - when the specialist examined my eye, this regrowth had yet to begin - I did not realize this was suppose to happen but once I knew then I was not really surprised because I know how slow that area heals for me. As a result I am now wearing that bandage contact lense again - the one I can see thru but has no power in it. It helped a bit - for my piece of mind - to know that my specialist was not surprised this happened. So now I am bak to waiting - I go bak to the specialist next Wednesday, 12/7 so I hope I will know more then - especiall since I am set to go bak to work on 12/12.
We are all doing well otherwise - just trying to stay warm. May get a little freezing rain this weekend.
