  • No kidding Travis - really hope you're doing OK

    I had surgery recently and somehow my cornea got scratched during the case or when I was coming out of anesthesia.  It was a very mild scratch but it hurt like hell.  I can only imagine the pain you were/are in.

    Prayers and best wishes

  • UPDATE: I saw the specialist this morning. I have a 1cm gash on my cornea. The good news is that it is not very deep which is apparently is the critical dimension when dealing with eye injuries. I had PRK surgery in 07 which makes me both high risk and familiar with the pain of eye trauma. I cant see clearly out of the injured eye but, I think that will fix its self. The Doc had to trim the torn edge to facilitate even healing with less scaring. It doesn't hurt too much right now as I have taken a small handful of Vicoden. 

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. This forum defiantly has a good group of folks. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
