Zephyrhills, Florida (hi 79, low 64)
I had the laser Iridectomy on my right eye done yesterday morning.
Prior to the procedure, I read up on it on the internet, and it sounded like a very simple, painless procedure. The doctor uses a laser to poke a small hole in the iris.
What it didn't say was that is would take 41 attempts to get the job done. Evidently, it takes more than one laser blast to go through the cornea. He just kept hitting the laser and each little blast was painful. It was kind of like a jackhammer, verses a bullet.
It was more painful than I expected. I only expected one little blast from the laser and it would be done…but he kept it up and kept it up.
I started getting a headache immediately, so they gave me some extra strength Tylenol. When I walked out a few minutes later Al said I looked like I’d been beaten up. I felt like it too.
I have to go back next week for a check up. I hope it was successful. I’m not looking forward to getting the other eye done.
We went straight home and I laid down for a while until my headache got better, then we went and got some Lucas Bio Medic Fuel Sterilizer. We found out that we should be adding this when we’re sitting for a while to prevent algae build up in the fuel tank of the motor home. Since we’ve been sitting over a month, we decided to go ahead and get that done.
We made a quick run to Camping World, then home and I had a 3 hour nap! That procedure certainly took it out of me.
Today, Al has an appointment with the optometrist….here we go again.
