This is the first forum I've been on, having a hard time figuring out exactly how to use but
I have read dozens and dozens of posts on all subjects and I learn so much and also keep thinking these people are like me.
It helps a lot.
Thanks for calling me strong but I think it was more stubborn, scared and not informed.
I was in the service at the time, I went to Dr , next day back to Dr and was put in hospital that day.
Stayed in hospital about a month before surgery. Army is slow.
After surgery they did want to sew eye completely shut, I refused, they said I would have to later if I didn't do it then.
They mentioned hypolossal anastomos I refused.
I just wanted to go home.
stayed in hospital abt 11 days after surgery. was told to use tearsol drops in eye, went home for awhile then went back to be processed out of army. I guess if I had surgery in home town I would have gone back for follow ups.
abt 15 years after surgery I did go to a Dr. about being dizzy because it seemed worse than usual. I took medication a couple weeks and quit.
So for 34 years I've used tear drops, had eye problems dust wind etc but seem to deal with it alright.
About month ago was having trouble with eye, I'm guessing dry eye that wasn't going away, last couple weeks Iv'e been using my regular eye drops, gel drops and ointment for the first time, so I go to eye Dr. for first time he sees me twice sends me to another Dr. who wants to put gold weight and tighten lower lid.
I did find my surgery records from 81 it mentions fragments of tissue and then brain stem acoustic neuroma 3 cm in diameter
vii nerve viii nerve sectioned.
sorry I went on and on but you have to understand after 34 years I have found people that understand and can help me.
