Yes! I have dry eye, mouth, and nose—all on my left side. I went to the dentist and had my teeth coated, like a toddler’s, to prevent enamel erosion. I also use all the dry mouth products—Biotin mouthwash, spray, and lozenges. My tastebuds are messed up. Potatoes chips used to be my guilty pleasure. Now they taste like nothing.
My tear duct was plugged to keep the tears in and I wear an eye patch to prevent cornea damage. I take the patch off to drive. I’ve been to the ophthalmologist 4 or 5 times in the last 3 months. I developed terrible dry spots on my cornea in the first two weeks post surgery. I realize I’m the only one walking around with an eye patch but I do not want lasting damage. I am only a little over 3 months post surgery.
As for my nose—well it doesn’t run on the left side. I’m not going to worry about it unless there is some issue I’m not aware of right now.
I will look into a scleral lens for my eye if I don’t make improvements shortly. How long should I wait?
