FINALLY had a doc appointment with my specialist today - first one in a month and the next one is 3 months off and my local eye doc in a month. Anyway it was some good and some was not really a surprise and no worse than before but no better.
First the good - vision is now improved to mostly
20/80 which means vision has improved a bit more than it was last month - not much but it is at least an improvement. I am also going to try to return to work next Monday - 7/2/13 altho not sure if all day or half.
Now for the part that is no worse but no better and what I am not surprised at all. After my eye/vision (rite eye - only eye with vision) messed up this past March, my specialist did a stem cell transplant using donated stem cells in an attempt to improve the condition of my eye - the procedure went ok however the plan did
not - no improvement at all in the condition of my eye. So altho I do plan on returning to work next week - how long it lasts is questionable. I am planning to work as long as possible or
3 - 5 years - whichever comes first. Eventually my specialist wants to do another stem cell transplant however at that time, he plans on using stem cells from my own left eye which is perfectly healthy - just can't see out of it. He believes since it would be my own tissue that there would be a better chance of it having a positive outcome. After that is totally healed and working - 3 to 6 months - then if needed he would do another cornea transplant - first try a donated cornea but if that didn't work after time, my own cornea from my healthy but non-functioning left eye.
