I tried to type up a question and lost it. don't know where it went but I will make it short this time just in case you got the other message. I had an eye bleed the other day, my doctor, who is a specialist like you, put a shot of avastin in it. It looked like more blood came out awhile ago so I called my doctor and he said it takes a few days for avastin to stop the bleed to call him this Monday or Tuesday. He said he might have to go in there and clean it out etc. Is there any other tests, other than, the flouresten test, can't spell, to catch the bleeds before they happen? And how long does it take Avastin to stop the bleed when they put the shot in there? Thank you

Dr. Dan B. : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Customer:

yes

Customer:

okay I must have lost you on chat so just email me an answer. thank you

Dr. Dan B. : There really are no tests that can be done to foretell or foreshadow a retinal bleed happening.
Dr. Dan B. : The Avastin itself does not make the bleeding go away, But after several days can help to slow down and reverse the causes of the bleeding.

Customer:

Does the fluorescent test show the abnormal blood vessels that might bleed?

Dr. Dan B. : Many times, yes, the fluorescein angiogram can display the blood vessels that cause the retina to bleed. But not always does it show them.
Customer:

okay. thank you.
