September 2, 2015: Good News, Bad News

I haven’t been able to see very well lately. After this past surgery, my vision was pretty well shot. My doctor felt it was a good idea to get my eyes checked out and make sure I didn’t have any type of infection. I started to make excuses about why my vision might be so blurry, but then I remembered what happened the last time I tried excusing something away. That didn’t go so well for me, so I made an appointment. 

First of all, insurance is a nightmare. I don’t know why it has to be, but it seems to be that way in most everything I have insured. It’s so frustrating! Needless to say, I had to pay for my exam and will have to file a claim to get it reimbursed. 

The good news – I don’t have any type of infection! Yea!

The bad news – Chemo (and possibly all the anesthesia) has damaged my eyesight. I asked if it was temporary and she sadly shook her head and said she didn’t believe so. I had hoped I’d be a candidate for contacts, but she said it’s too risky considering my immune system and contacts don’t help my issues much anyway. So once my insurance issue is all straightened out, I guess I’ll be getting glasses and prescription sunglasses. 

By the time cancer is done with me, I will be a totally different person in so many ways.
