post cataract surgery symptoms

I had cataract surgery l0 days ago. One year ago I was told that I had glaucoma and needed surgery.  The cataract came, I am sure as a result of the glaucoma surgery.  Now I am extremely worried because I feel as if there is a lens loose on my right eye and I also see a shadow on the right corner of my eye.  My doctor seems to think is nothing but I am to have my second eye done day after tomorrow.  I am truly scared because I don't get my answers the way I like from my doctor.  I am getting this type of new lenses, one eye for close vision and the other for far.  What should I do?  
Thank you,

Lucinha

This is most likely negative dyphotopsia.  It usually goes away.  Another concern is a possible retinal detachment.  You need to discuss this with your surgeon.  Your could get the same problem If he uses the same band of IOL in your other eye.
