My latest medical results are in and my left eye is right where it should be in its recovery from the vitrectomy. My vision has returned, and I can bend over and lift, with no restrictions, and No longer need to use eye drops.
As for the right eye and its cancer; I turned in the paperwork for applying to be seen by MD Anderson hospital, but unless they decide otherwise I might not be seen by them until I’ve lived in Houston 6 Mo. (3/20/13). It is out of my hands.
The good news is that the condition of the eye won’t change in any significant way in the short term. I learned that if I end up being treated by MD Anderson, the treatment will lead to 2 years’ worth of recovery as the melanoma recedes and clears up.
Of course the other option is having Ben Taub hospital take the eye out completely. That’s why we need to have an evaluation by MD Anderson, to choose the best treatment.
The latest blood test showed my b12, folic acid, iron, and a couple of other levels are normal.
