I am an 8 year breast cancer survivor, I had a sarcoma.
2 weeks ago, I started seeing "spots" in my right eye. Its a purple-ish football spiining shpaed thing. Sometimes it's grey, but its always there and driving me batty. Its there even when my eye is closed.
I went to the optometrist last Tuesday, she immediately sent me to an opthamologist. (I flunked the periphreal vision test (which was fine last year) and said I had a lot of swelling behind my retina.)
The Optholmologist did another exam, and said I had optical migraines,with a touch of optical neuropathy. Blamed my diet, told me to cut back on caffeine & take Vit. B12.
Ive googled this to death...I dont have any headaches or pain! Its getting worse, not better.
Im due for my MRI/scans in the late summer, should I call my oncologist and have them moved up? Im thinking the C word, just because once you have cancer, you think everythin g is cancer.
