Customer Question

I had a pterygium removed a few years ago with a graft of my own tissue which worked wonderfully. My dr retired and his partner removed the other three and used an amniotic graft. The one I had removed 4 weeks ago is still horribly red with swollen tissue and very uncomfortable while the outside ones are just red. He said that he will remove the excess tissue from the inflamed one and replace the graft with my own tissue and cauterize the blood vessels on the others as they are still red after two months. Does this sound acceptable or should I see someone else
