It’s been three months since our last EUA and six months since Adelaide’s goniotomy. She’s been a star patient with an exceptionally rare recovery.
Two weeks ago at our last office visit, Adelaide’s opthamologist said that her left eye “felt firmer than [she] would like”, which is making Matt and I a little very nervous about Monday.
Adelaide should be going in for EUAs every three months, so if her eye pressures are fine during the EUA on Monday we won’t have to endure another EUA until July. Cross your fingers!!
If things don’t go so well, and Adelaide’s eye pressure is up, then, depending on the severity, we will either have to resume eye drops, or she will have another goniotomy on Monday.
The major issue, is that you can only have two goniotomies per eye, and then all of your eye-ball real estate has been used up and you have to move on to inserting a shunt in what’s called a tubalectomy. We don’t want to have to do a tubalectomy.
So think of us Monday morning (procedure starts at 8:00am!). We’ll update facebook as we learn things and I’ll update this blog once we’re home.
