Two weeks after surgery, I developed some facial paralysis. Docs say that it is temporary and have me on heavy doses of steroids for two weeks. I told them that my eye has been dry and irritated for several days. They prescribed Natural Tears and and ointment to put on at bedtime. The drops do nothing. They ointment makes it feel better, but I can't see because of the film over my eye. I had a huge black eye after surgery that my Doc says was caused from the Nerve monitor (not sure if he hit me with it or what, ha). Don't know if the eye problem is related to that or not. My eye closes completely, so I don't think the irritation is from that. Ha anyone else come across this problem? Been thinking about going to see my eye doctor if things don't improve by end of week.
