Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
so where is your answer; you said you have answered my ?
Hi. I'm live and in person.....and we are working on your question right now.
Are you still there?
yes, still here
How long ago was your DSEK?
DSEK was in May 2010
okay where is the answer?
Ok. are you still using the pred forte 1% drops one time daily?
We are live....so the answer is a work in progress.......
Like a Piccasso.
yes, up until yesterday.
It is possible that your surgeon placed a small stitch in your cornea at the end of your surgery to keep the entrance wound safely closed. If this is the case, this stitch may have broke and is now irritating your eye causing it to water.
The thing with the drops is that they are helping to prevent a rejection of your transplanted endothelial cells.......you are between a rock and a hard place right now. You need the drops to prevent rejection, but if you have a broken stitch using the drops can make you more prone to an infection.....
it couldn't be from over-use of the drops??
I would suggest you see an ophthalmologist this morning to see if there is a broken stitch. If there is it can be easily removed. If no ophthalmologist is available an optometrist may be able to help you.
I see you have gone offline.
