I'm having cateract surgery on the 17th on my one eye. I didn't take very good care of my self when I was younger and as a result, I had to have my left eye removed and have a lot of surgery on my right. I had a vectrentomy on my right,that's when the lens is replaced by another. Normally, cateract surgery is an easy procedure with no problems. Because I had such exstensive surgery on my eye, there's a chance things might go wrong during the surgery. There is also a chance that the artificial eye might spread infection to my good eye after the surgery. The possible ramifications from both of these situations could result in my loss of sight. I'm very nervous about this procedure and trying to be positive, but it's diffucult. I'm hoping for the best and hopefully after the17th I can say everything is going to be all right.
