For those that don't know who Alex is, he is my other very supportive half and does a lot of the technical stuff etc but he has never suffered panic/anxiety but supports me and others on NMP with the website/forum work he does.

Anyway ...

Alex has cataracts on both eyes and he is only 39 and they may need operating on.

This was diagnosed 2 years ago and on Tuesday next week we have to see the consultant again to see if they are worse or not and whether they can operate or not.

Now being a man Alex is pretending he is ok but I know he is very worried and rightly so as it is his eyesight that is effected. :weep:

Last time he was close to not being legal to drive so they may take his license away until they can operate or whatever they decide to do so he is worried about that as well.

We will know more on Tuesday but can we send him some hugs cos he is very scared (but won't admit it cos he is a MAN) and I know he needs some support and this is one way I can show him how much he means to us all.

Love you Alex and I will be there with you on Tuesday and we will get through it no matter what ok?:hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

A friend of mine (45 at the time) had something wrong with a retina a few years back and while they were dealing with that problem they said he had cataracts too, so they dealt with them at the same time and now he doesnt even need glasses anymore.

All the best for Tues.

Hi

I had cataracts last year. I was nearly blind in one eye and the right was deteriorating as well. I put in to go to the hopsital if someone cancelled their appointment. I had the right one done within 2 weeks. I was so glad as I couldn't read or drive. The left one was done within a month. I was anetheitised and came around from the anesthetic fine.

It is such a relief to be able to read as I am always reading papers and books when I am not on the computer.

Best of luck for Tuesday and I hope you get the operations soon.

Good luck for Tuesday Alex :hugs: . Cateracts are horrible little things but so easily dealt with. I had my left one done in May under a local anaesthetic, and was walking out of the hospital within 2 hours. I can't tell you how quick and easy the operation was and how bright and vivid the colours were once I took my eye patch off.

Take care

Well we got through that after lots of nerves and I am talking mine as well :wacko:

Alex had lots of tests done and drops put in his eyes to dilate the pupils so he can't see very well at the moment and his eyes hurt so I am posting for him.

Basically he is now below the legal driving limit so can't do that and both eyes have to be operated on. They have deteriorated since he last went in 2006.

They will have to do this under general anaesthetic as they say because of his age the eyes will be too sensitive to do under a local one. The other reason is that he has cataracts that are potentially harder to operate on as they are not sure whether the membrane behind the lens is damaged or not and probably won't know till they take the lens out. If it is then it is a bit more complicated to operate on.

We have booked the first appointment for 19th November and then he should be able to have the next one done 2 weeks after that:yesyes:

He will also have to then wear glasses for reading and close-up work.

So for now he can't drive anywhere and I am the new taxi driver and he needs to sort something out with work as to how he gets in etc.

Thanks for all the support - will update again once we get the first one done and over with!

Cheers Kaz and Andy - I will pass on the message cos he can't read at the moment!

It is a good job we have private medical insurance so we can get him done fairly soon. I dread to think what the wait is on the NHS.

Southern_Belle
23-10-07, 20:00
So glad you now know what you need to do. I agree doctors can do marvelous things nowadays. I do know you will be so relieved once this is over with and you can see properly again with glasses. Again, you are in my prayers and I hope you will be feeling better soon once the dialation process has worn off, I have always hated that myself.

Hugs,

Laura

Please pass on my best wishes and I hope Alex's eyes feel better soon. Perhaps it's a good thing he'll be having a general anaesthetic as I know that's what I'd rather have as I'm a bit squeemish. :blush: I'm sure the doctors will do a fantastic job and Alex will soon be seeing perfectly in a snazzy new pair of specs. :shades: :yesyes:

Big hugs for you as well Nic, it must be very worrying and you also had the radio program, which I hope went well. :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Take care,

Mike :)
