My doctor released me to return to work just 24 hours ago. I had done two post-operative visits and he was quite happy with the progress so far. My recently operated left eye is still a bit blurry when it is used on its own even with the help of a glasses. This is anyway still a work in progress. Things have slowly returned to normalcy.
I am still a work in progress and there is no promise that I will regain all the functionality of my left eye. This is yet to be seen
I spent my days in bed listening to podcasts and audiobooks. At some point I feared that I ended up deaf since I relied on them so much for everything. I had never spend 14 days in a major sensory deprivation like this and it was indeed a strange and profound experience. I had to deal with my own thoughts for 336 hours whether in awaken or dreaming state or something in between. It did give me some new perspective on life and its bodily decay.
My eye surgery was to fix a tear in my left eye retina (also known as Retinal Detachment). I was operated within 5 days of the first diagnoses and had to undergo a general anesthesia. I picked the most expensive surgeon recommended by a friend and paid the operation out of pocket. To my surprised this expensive operation is still half or a third of the cost had this operation been done in the US..
So I am back to my still truncated schedule but at least I can do what I missed the most, the ability to write down the accumulated thoughts in my mind.
