Hi Chrissmom ( what IS your name !!) The fellow who works with Dr. Jewett did give me a script for the moisture chamber to take to ENT (you'd of thought they'd
have told me about this sooner !!!!), I'll get them when I go to get the stitches out this Thursday !!
WOW, so you've been dealing with this cornea mess for awhile, you know exactly what we all go through even more than us !!
Yes, the weight has to be changed; Dr. Jewett showed me a picture of someone who didn't get it removed after 5 years,
the gold was breaking through the lid, not a pretty picture.
Chris will probably have the weight removed for good once the 12/7 jump takes full hold.
(though, now that I think about it, my neurologist said the eye area may not always come back, I don't know if that means after
a nerve graft too.. hhmmmmm........)
I'm going to ask Dr. Jewett about the external weight for temporary use pending the platinum implant.
You're right, I've learned so much from so many on this site, it IS incredible !!!
Take care, Chrissmom, AKA ? Your son sounds like such a great guy.... If I was only 30 something years younger...
