Gas Bubble in eye (after eye surgery)

Three weeks after after my torn retina repaired, my gas bubble took on a much different shape overnight - Went from being round to a complete "split (pumpkin like) with a couple small balls on top.  Just wanted to know if this was ok, or should I be concerned.

It's probably nothing to worry about. As the gas bubble gets smaller it tends to break up and may even eventually look like a whole bunch of tiny bubbles, like fish eggs.

That is to be expected as it dissolves...you're making progress.
