I went to the Opthamologist today. I really went in to see the optometrist in that practice for a new glasses presription as I have had more trouble seeing (blurry) for a while, but just haven't gotten in there.
She saw something and then the Opthamologist that checks my eyes for the MS reasons every few years that I go in, examined me.
I have a cataract in my right eye, so that is what is causing me so much blurry vision, etc.
BUT GET THIS........ In reveiwing my meds (Coumadin, Plavix, baby aspirin) I was excited to explain what I had done at Stanford only 2 weeks ago and how well I am doing, ETC.
WHOA!! Did he ever stop me dead in my tracks! He put me completely on the defensive and was not very nice about it.
His attitude and questions were stupid, "How many have they done? What do they expect to gain from it"? and the like.
Not one truly interested, good medical question.
I was in such shock I couldn't even respond appropriately with what information I have. But it would have been a waste of my effort anyway.
I am so shocked that someone like him, with a few prominent practice locations in the Bay Area and a good surgical reputation, would be so closed minded and aggressively negative to even the idea of something new.
Needless to say, he will not be my Opthamologist again and will not be doing my cataract surgery.
Anyway, I wake up every morning now with NO headaches!
I am sleeping ALL night with great, normal dreams.
I am back to doing my laptop computer data input on the Virtual Network to my husbands business like I was before. And I am doing almost the same amount as before except my eyes are blurry, hence the trip to the optometrist/opthamologist. ha ha.
When I got out of the car yesterday, I caught the door to slam it shut and that hurt my shoulder that was healing, and I feel like I put myself back about a week doing that! Such a seemingly small motion.
I really feel great and it hasn't even been 3 weeks.
I didn't go to the optometrist before surgery for a few years because I never felt 'good enough' and kept cancelling the appts.
Now, only 2 weeks post op I was down there for the exam. I think that is a big deal! Or at least a good indicator!
thanks for reading all this! Rose
