My eye surgery April 30th 2019

I had my first cataract surgery 3yrs ago. The surgery went well and my sight was perfect for the first 3 weeks even though I had another cataract in my other eye which needed doing. To cut a long story short I had a reaction to the surgery and ended up with fluid behind the eye This did clear but by now my right eye had deteriorated quickly, I had to go back to see the consultant at the hospital who didn't want to know when I told him I was having difficulty reading and that I couldn't see out of my right eye because of the dense cataract. His response was that lots of people drive with one eye and I could have glasses. I saw that man on the 12th of September 2019, I have not seen anyone since and now I'm blind in my right eye, the sight in my left eye is very poor because its been doing the job for two eyes.
I have gone through 4 Christmases like this and I don't know what it's like to be able to see properly because I've been like this for so long. I had a preop assessment 4 weeks ago and have heard nothing since.
