Hi Flossy! I just updated my ongoing saga, in the event you have any words of wisdom/or wanted to follow along with it!? But, I posted this on the long post I had started-I have had Cataract surgery & Retinal Detachments on both eyes, and a YAG on my left eye. I am now scheduled for pars plana vitrectomy as I was diagnosed with epiretinal membrane. So, I am having an epi retinal peel /ERM in one week in hopes of clearing up the scar tissue so as to no longer have the blurry and reduced vision.
It is mostly my central vision in this eye/which had the YAG procedure, as well, that is most affected right now.
Trying to stay positive, and waiting out the days until then!
Hi Flossy, i posted this on the forum, as I am now scheduled for this procedure on the 17th and 25th. If you have a chance tell me what your thoughts are on it! I am dreading more surgeries and more...?!Pat.
