The Doctors here have imposed a ban or more like a restriction of the amount of time I am allowed to spend in front of the computer until the treatment of my recurrent corneal erosion is complete so I won't have time to put in all the pictures I took in between my entries like I normally do for the next few days ok guys?
Now this morning at 8am I was at the hospital here in Singapore. I went through a slightly disturbing experience.
The doctor was doing a follow up and checking up on my eye to see if it's getting better when she noticed that some 'skin' from my cornea was coming off.
As in there was a flap of skin coming down because my cornea didn't heal too well from my previous erosion. Guess what she did... she said it's totally fine and it'll just come off by itself and problem solved.
SHE GOT A NURSE TO HOLD MY EYE OPEN, TOOK A PAIR OF SHARP METAL TWEEZERS AND REACHED INTO MY EYE TO PULL OUT THAT PIECE OF CORNEA THAT WAS FLAPPING.
AND THE WHOLE TIME I HAD TO LOOK THAT METAL TWEEZER IN THE EYE!
I shrieked in pain and said
"OWW DOCC!!! DID YOU PUT ANESTHETIC ?!?!"
And the Doc said
"Yes I did... ok put some more."
In the end, and after 3 days of seeing 3 different doctors here in Singapore, the final Doc gave me two choices of treatment:
1) One a contact lens bandage that might work or
2) Go for the laser surgery that will significantly hurt a lot more but have a higher probability of curing it.
I decided to go for the laser so tomorrow morning I'm going to the hospital for surgery. As a result of that I may not be in the best position to update my blog again tomorrow right after surgery but I'll do it asap anyway.
The one thing I have to say is... Thank God that we have such a capable team at Nuffnang that can run the show for a week without me being around... otherwise we're so screwed!!!
Looks like I'm gonna be in Singapore for another week.
My dear readers, I will miss you all.. will be back soon.
I miss my lump too.
