Four weeks post op......
As of today, Feb 10th, 2016, post cataract surgery 4 weeks and 1 day. Have had problems from day one and still present. Evening of surgery got extremely nauseated, throwing up, turning into very painful dry hives, hot and cold flashes, overall very ill. Could not reach doctor, son tried for 5 hours, answering service said doctor was not answering their calls. Out of desperation, my son and daughter-in-law fearing for my safety, went across town (now midnight) to get anti-nausea pills which her son had. After two doses, about a half hour apart I finally started to get a little relief, finally falling asleep.
Next morning early post-op appointment doctor said he "forgot" to turn his phone on last night! My pressure was extremely high, was given a pill to take and several eye drops.
My eye has been swollen, feels like something in it and very weepy since the surgery, quite uncomfortable. sight still a little blurry, I am a very healthy 81 year old female, can still read without glasses, I am not diabetic, nor do I have glaucoma.
Has been a horror story from day one. Now facing surgery for right eye and wondering whether to go through with it or not....
