OMG I can't imagine the trauma of having eye surgery while conscious. It's up there as one of big fears. You've been through a horrendous ordeal this week. My lord, the stress you're enduring. My heart goes out to you. Thank heavens for your lovely neighbour driving you there! I hope it's not horribly painful, and that it heals up well. The people at the thyroid forum have been wonderfully helpful. It's such a relief to feel supported with it. Thank you so much for directing me there! Take good care of yourself. Take it easy, let your poor eye - and nerves! - heal up.
