My eye puffiness isn't real bad but can see it a bit from that eye.       My husband was actually the one who mentioned it last year and maybe should check into it while had  used deductible.             I went on and did colonscopy instead toward the end of the year as felt that was more important.            So this time can be the eye since his hip and my MRI will take care of deductible real well!
I hope your soon to be surgery will work well for you Moe.  Pretty bad for us when something like these surgeries are big deal to us.

Cheryl ~

Allow me to add my congratulations on your recent MRI results that showed - well, nothing at all!  :)

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
