Hello All, I had RD surgery 8 weeks ago and is having a hard time adjusting to life after the surgery. I used to occasionally get anxiety attacks earlier in life, I am 60 years old, it increased when my mom died 5 years ago and more when my sister died of cancer 1 year ago. I did not take any medications for it, however; now I cannot sleep, all my thoughts are focused on not wanting to lose my sight. My Dr said my eye is healing, but if there is scar tissue then I could get another retina detachment, and hopefully, it will not be the case. I am so scared of it happening that every night, I wake up after two hours and cannot sleep. My doctor gave me Ativan .05 mg which helps for a couple of hours and then I am awake and anxious, I start to sweat and cry, pacing my room until I regain some calm. I have asked my dr to refer me to a therapist or psychologist because I hate the nights and want to stop thinking of the worst with my eyes. Any suggestions???Thanks.
