Trabeculectomy



I went along to the Moorfields glaucoma clinic yesterday. I went through all the rigmarole of tests that i normally go through, then i had to see the the Dr. and she told me something that stunned me into disbelief. She said that i'm losing my sight and need a Trabeculectomy opperation on both my eyes. I asked her what would happen if i did'nt have the op. she said i would surely go blind within months rather than years. And she also said, there is no cure, but the opperation would give me more time before i eventually go blind.
I was told a few years  ago  that i might need an opperation, but it went out of my mind and i thought no more about it.
My next appointment is in March 2011 and i've to let the Dr know if i'm having the op or not. Well, theres only one thing i can say as i want to keep my sight for as long as possible, i must have the opperation...I'm not looking forward to that one bit and i'm also worried about the side effects that could occur during or after the op...I can't believe this is happening.
