I have an afternoon appointment in Portland tomorrow to talk to my surgeon concerning my upcoming facial surgery.
Very excited about the soon improvements in tearing,breathing and cornea wear.

Thanks,Dave.I'm so happy to have this done in Maine rather than at the VA hospital in Jamaica Plains.Nothing against the fine surgeons there...just so much simpler, logistically speaking.

Hope everything works out well Steve.  I had my annual check-up with my ophthalmologist yesterday and everything is fine.  Cataracts are forming, but  no need to mess with them until they get much worse.  Formerly torn retina no problem either.

I imagine it will take a few weeks to mend but the results will be amazing. Good plan Steve !

I hope all goes well Steve. My eye surgery, (to replace both lenses because of cataracts) was the best medical thing I’ve done.

I was told it will take around a year for full healing.
This is to get my left eye to close completely which it hasn't done since my '06 brain tumor operation which also was when I had a seizure in recovery.
We're going for lifting the low side of my mouth,pulling the nose to the left to get the left nostril breathing,again and raising the lower lid of the left eye to get that eye to shut completely so I can discontinue its daily antibiotic drops,permanent contact lens  and nightly taping the lid shut.
My diction might improve a bit in the raising of the left side of the mouth,too.
