post operative blindness pituitary adenoma

my FIL was diagnosed with a pituitary macro adenoma.  he experienced rapid vision loss so they took him in for emergent surgery.  he is now 7 days post op and still hasn't regained vision.  the neurosurgeons are not optimistic.  has anyone experienced temporary blindness from compressed optic nerves?  we're just wondering when we should give up hope :(
