Ha! Don't know why i didn't post anything earlier, but hey! - January 20th 2009, 08:55 AM

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all well and dandy!!

I've just had an operation on my eye (why i didn't post earlier and say I was going to and get some advice i don't know... but hey!)

So, has anyone had an op on their eye (all it was was a lump getting removed - i had it done under general instead of a local (i was given the choice))?

It's all fine and the patch came off my eye this morning and im now on three antibiotics and a course of steriods! but im just wondering if there is anything in particular i need to do regarding stitches, washing my eye, anything else that might not even have crossed my mind, because at the hospital they didn't really explain anything to me, and i was still groggy after the op and it didn't really occur to me to ask!!

don't you just love the NHS?!?

Thanks guys! (and yes I know you aren't doctors, I was planning on calling the hospital and asking them anyway)

Hey!

My father went through many eye operations in the lengths of his childhood and young adulthood, so I can (sort of) relate. Best advice though would be to visit or make a call to the NHS just to make sure. I wouldn't try anything on it until you do that, just to be safe! It's probably quite tender and sensative. I'm sure they're give you positive directions on how to treat it. Good luck recovering!


I love the name of honour more than I fear death.
