Floaters ruining my life

So I've had floaters since my RD in 06. I was just checked 2 weeks ago for change in floaters. I'm stabile. Just a question though. I have these clumps of floaters that aren't spots but more like cobwebs that make it look like I'm looking through Saran Wrap. Flick my eye n whoosh they move. What are the chances of these changing? It's become annoying to the point I'm getting depressed. They were always there but more so now. My eye gets so tired at the end of the day from flicking around.

They can be removed with a vitrectomy.  Discuss this with your retinal surgeon.

They won't do it until I can't function. It's my only eye with vision
