Had a tumor removed from my eyelid

Fay A.

Recommended Posts

I had a tumor removed from my inner eyelid yesterday. I needed only a few stitches, and I can't believe how much better my eye feels today. Every time I blinked it felt as if I had a rock scraping across the eye. The blurry vision in that eye has cleared somewhat, too. Maybe because the eye isn't being constantly irritated. I'm glad the lump is gone...

But I don't ever want to have to look at another needle headed for my eye. I couldn't close the eyelid...I just had to lie there and watch it coming towards me. :shock:

YIKES! Geez! My eyes are watering! How did you do that? How did you manage to hold still? I'm so so so so glad your tumor is gone and that your eye feels so much better, but oh my, I just can't talk about this anymore. :shock: Now I know why I was never interested in being a nurse. Brrrrrrrrr! Those are my shivers and these are my goose bumps:::::::::::::

God bless you, Fay!

That hurts just reading about it. I truly believe that no doctor should perform a procedure that he or she has not had done to oneself (as much as possible--like the needle aspect--not to say that the Dr would have a tumor on the eye) in the manner they make patients suffer it. In the good ol days before HMOs, a person could request to be put out for just about any procedure and it would be AOK. Now we need permission for the procedure itself--god forbid we be knocked out.

What kind of tumor was it may I ask? Well you are one hellava woman.

Don't bllink--

Ooooooooooo, makes me shiver just thinking about it. But if the end result means your eye feels so much better and the vision is clearing, it was a good Oooooooooooooooooo.

It is amazing what us humans put up with for the sake of 'stayin alive'.

Geez, Fay! Are you SURE your surname isn't "Murphy"?? Gonna have to start writing "Fay's Laws" as a supplement to Murphy's...

Glad you've quit scratching your eyeball every time you flirt!

What an experience for you - you're almost like that sailor, Sinbad...

Take care,

Tell ya, life is one darn thing after another.

May that be one experience that remains unique for you.

Glad you're okay, and vision's cleared.
