The Date is in for the operation to extract my eye from its socket. 29th June 2010. It is a long wait, another six weeks but at least I know have a definite end in sight for the problem. Roll on, I can’t wait.
The process is as follows: I have the eye removed. I go back a week later to have the socket checked out. I then wait a further six weeks for all healing to occur and then have an off the shell painted eye shell placed in the eye. I wear this for a week or so to get used to it then I am back to have a mould of the socket taken and my final eye is made. It is then fitted and painted to match my good eye. That’s it. I go back each each for a check up and a polish.
It is scary and a new beginning for me. But by golly I have been waiting long enough for this problem to stop. I just hope it wont be too long now.
There is a possibility that I could have the operation sooner as I am on the cancellation list, so I may have a phone call at any time to go in and have it whipped out.
Exciting, isn’t it?
