eye surgery with jones tube

I had eye surgery on 0ct 1,2010, on my right eye only. I had a Jones tube inserted. It has been 2 wks and I see very little improvement. My eye will not water for a short period of time and then all of a sudden tears will just pool in the right corner of my eye. That is why I had surgery!!!!!!!!!!!! The only difference is that before the tears would run down my face and I looked like I was crying. I am just wondering how long it will take for the tubes to work. I thought I would be just about back to normal by now. I guess I still have some swelling, I go back to the dr. in 3wks. I just wondered if there was an approximate time that I could expect to see results. I hope sooner rather than later. Thank for any help.

Dear Mackeysmom,

I would recommend that you call the doctor’s office that performed your procedure and speak with them about your symptoms.
