I recently had a retinal detachment fixed. I now have a gas bubble. I keep hearing different lengths of time until the bubble disappears. Why does it disappear for some in 3 weeks and others 8 weeks. I'm scheduled to fly in a few weeks and wondering what the odds are of my going on the trip.
no I guess everyone is different in their response, but it did help put my retina back in place and restore much of my vision. The healing process can take several months after the Gas bubble goes away.
