macular hole repair

I had surgery to repair a hole in the macular in left eye 15 days ago.  The gas bubble left completely today. Hallaluiah!  That was an experience.  I know my vision is supposed to improve over the next 3-6 months.  My question is should I still be seeing distortion in the sport where the hole was supposed to be repaired.  The doctor could not tell if it was successful at my 1 week visit.  I am to return in 4 days and am wondering what he will tell me.  I am very nervous about the success of the surgery.  I would hate to have to go through that again anytime soon.

The post operative course depends on a number of factors.  All macular hole repairs do not return to normal vision.
