Thanks for requesting me :)
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Doc said it was normal-but it sure felt diff from the other ones--Might this mean THIS shot will "work" better than the others?
Your Question Mark,

~Madeleine~

P.S. Working on Halloween?? HORRORS!!!!

P.P.S. You know you are my Go-To Guy:just sorry you had to GO

TO the Hosp or Wherever on such a night!!!!

 

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 8 months ago.
I ended up in the operating room.....long night :(

Yes, hopefully this shot will work better.

I'm not sure what caused the initial feelings after the shot..perhaps it was because the medicine was right in the area/nerves it needed to be in.

I hope it works well and lasts for a long time.

Have a good day!

I am sorry you had to be up ALL night in the OR--but you ARE an Eye Guy,and it WAS Halloween--However, it must have been bad, bec. you should have SOME Seniority by now--so prob'ly only YOU could saved the day(Should i start calling ya SuperRick???!)!!!!!!!!

I tho't the same thing about the shot; that it possibly had reached the areas "needed" for my symptoms to calm down....makes sense, no?However, i WAS told i might feel worse before i feel "betterer" so-i hope THAT was the "worse" part....

Today, so far, so good-not walking a lot;gonna have to build up again....

Thoughts?

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 8 months ago.
Madeline,

I think you are going to do just fine and the shot is going to work :)

Bad eye case, but -- when all is said and done -- I'd have to admit operating is my favorite part of the job....just not at night.
