I had surgery to prevent retinal detachment four days ago and I am experiencing more bleeding today. I am now experiencing vision loss in that eye and am wondering if this is common or to be expected after surgery, or if I should seek attention.
Thanks for the reply,my problem is "vitreous hemorrhage" occurred 4 days after laser treatment to stop vessel bleeding and also to prevent the retina from detaching.
Now with the holidays all the offices are closed till Jan,
My eye start to bleed again and in aprox 45 minutes my vision
went to almost none, not been able to go to see the doctor that performed the surgery, I went the Hospital ER , they called the eye Dr that was on call, he said to go to his office today . today they called and said that his wife was having a baby , and they said to come in tomorrow,
now it is the waiting that I am concerned about. thanks ,
okay a vitreous hemorrhage, yes that can wait until tomorrow. you may need a vitrectomy (another surgery), but maybe not. you knew all of this before you posted? i mean you knew you had a vitreous hemorrhage before you asked your question...or did you just find out at the ER?
anyway...no matter. not a medical emergency. as long as the surgeon knows and is okay with waiting...
