About Me: Female, 63, Brooklyn, NY, member since Aug 2008
I have had numerous eye surgeries for detached retina:-laser, gas bubble, buckle, and vitrectomy. Retina is re-attached, but only vision in affected eyes is counting fingers close up, cannot see the chart at all. Now I need another eye surgery to remove silicone put in
[More] to hold retina together, and surgery for macular buckle and to remove scar tissue which developed after surgery.
I have been diagnosed with Epstein-Barr virus, CMV, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthitis.
I also need another operation because I have a "universal prolapse" - bladder, uterus, and rectum. If anyone has any info on prolapse and operations to correct, please post messages.
