Eye operation

Hello J-landians!
 
T'has been a traumatic day for me..lol! I'm laughing but I really don't feel like it. I had an operation on my eye this morning, and I'm telling ya, all those who said 'Oh it wont hurt' can kiss my ass, 'cos I've never felt pain like it in my life! The op was to remove two lumps from my right eye. One on my upper lid, and the bigger one on the bottom. I was quite shocked about the pain of the first needles. One for top and bottom. I just about crushed the hand of the nurse who said I could hold her...lol!
 
Some of you may have had one of these ops, as did my cousin, but she told me it didn't hurt, but oh my god...I almost cried. I'm not really THAT squeamish, but I declare right now, if I ever get another eye lump, I'll live with it, 'cos I'm never having that done again! I'm all patched up now, lookin like a pirate, but I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end. I'm sooo glad that the lump's gone now. I just wish I could feel where the lump used to be, but I can't touch. Plus I wont be able to feel it until the swelling's gone down. Grrr!
 
Here's a pic of what it was like....
 
 
 
                                     
 
 
Yay..it's gone now..(hopefully)!!
 
I went out on Saturday night with some friends from work. They always ask me but I always decline for some reason, but I'm so glad I went this time 'cos it was a fantastic night. I ended up elbowing a BIG rasta'farian in the face when I was playing pool. I apologised, and I was waiting for the thump, but he just burst out laughing. We all got chatting and I ended up telling my life story to him and his wife.........well they asked!..lol!
 
Anyways, I hope you're all well..miss you guys!
 
xxxxx

Oh yeah, just like the dentist telling you your going to feel a small prick when they give you novacaine. Small my ass. Hope your eyes feels better soon. The good thing is it's done and over with now. When the swelling goes down you won't even remember it hurt. (Hugs) Indigo

Steve, if they told you eye operations don't hurt they were correct. You should have asked them about operations on the eye lids. That is bound to hurt some. Imagine the pain and agony if they had not given you the needle to relieve or mask some of the pain.
Grow up, we all have to suffer pain some times in our life. It helps us regale in the days when we are painfree.
Good luck, don't pick your nose either. Bill

Bill, thanks for your comment, but please gimme a break. They told me that THIS procedure I was having wouldn't hurt. Obviously, I knew it would. They ALL say it wont hurt, no matter what you're having done, so I knew to expect pain, but not to that level. As for your 'grow up' comment, all I can say is you're a very rude and offensive man, so please stop coming here. How anyone can tell someone that they hardly know to 'grow up' is beyond me. After leaving childish comments like that, I think it's YOU than needs to grow up!

Regards,

Ste

Hi Steve,
I was there so I know how brave you were today. All operations that involve needles are bound to hurt, so I sympathise with you today, I know how painful it was for you. That was quite a size lump you had removed.
I'm just really glad it's all over and you just have to get better now.
At least when you look in the mirror, it wont be looking back at you.
Love ya   x x x

I've had about 7 eye operations (from when I was younger) and they hurt every single damn time.  You should have scored a couple pain killers!!!  Come on over....I'll fix you right up!!!  Hee...

Get some rest, lovey.....hopefully the pain goes away quickly.

emabecmar said...

oh jeez, i do hope the swelling goes down fast and there's no more pain. don't touch it either, hands are full of germs no matter how often we wash them and you don't want an infection in your eye. (((((((((Stevie)))))))))
Love ya,
Cindy xoxoxoxo
