More serious thinking… April 18, 2009

Posted by loz121 in Uncategorized.
I was so against the idea of an eyelid lift at first that I told the doctor I didn’t want to hear anything else about it! But now I’ve looked back at previous pictures of me when I’m out and about, I’ve either deleted some or got annoyed because it would have been a lovely picture apart from my eyes… It never used to be an issue before so I don’t know why it is now. I think it’s because the older I get, the worse my eyes are gonna get and get ever lower over my eyes.. :0S so I’m beginning to seriously consider the procedure. It sounds quite daunting an eyelid lift… as to why I dismissed the idea straight away but doing some research on the internet where it’s just a local anesthetic and a stitch to lift it up… but I need to find out more from the doc!

I remember that I was against the idea of a PEG too and I got that done, even though I had the trouble of not being able to swallow my food after the operation and the banana I ate went down the wrong hole and into my lungs so at least that my docs know from past that I’m not to eat after the operation until I’m strong enough and the docs will put the food through my PEG should I decide to have the eyelid lift procedure.

I think the sooner I get the procedure, the better chance my eyes will be able to adapt and maybe my double vision would get better. My doc says it has a good success rate with patients so I’ll let you know what happens. I think I’ll write me down some Qs to ask the doc and email him.

Yeah, good idea, get info and all the questions answered from yr doctor, you wont be committing yourself to the decision so youll be able to decide after getting all the information

Hi Laura,I agree with Melissa, too – perhaps once all your questions are answered your decision will be easier to make. I’m off to find the Russian hiccup rhyme now!DGx
