I had my retina reattached a couple of years back it wasn't so bad. Got a cataract forming there now so getting regular eye checks.
Jeebus, how do they do that kind surgery?
Laser stuff. I was wheeled in then laid down. They offered me a mild sedative which I refused. They cover your face just exposing the eye. The surgeon I had spoke to me all the way through and asked me how it was feeling. At one point it did get a bit sore. Like a tugging pain is how I described it. I guess that was the point the laser was working on the reattatchnent.

Afterwards they ask you to keep your head down (forward) to help drain any fluid. You need to sleep upright for a few days after the op. And use a fluid to rinse the eye for about a week or so.
That sounds … horrible (remembering that I'm a big baby). The only reason I'd refuse a mild sedative would be to argue for something stronger.
You WILL be fine mate.

My main source of bravery in this is the knowledge of how many old people go thru it just fine. If 72-year-old Gladys Potchinsky can do this, I'd better be able to.

I just read Gladys has been arrested for stealing her neighbours glass eye. Seems her sight is great.

Just caught up on the last few months of this thread. Good luck Doc and everyone else with their various ailments. It's shit getting old.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I think strong dope exists for a reason. This is the reason.

Played a double header today and Im embarrassed to say by the 2nd half of the 2nd game I was gassed. I do play hard and will run out the shittiest grounder I might hit in the hopes I can force a hurried throw and it works sometimes. But at one point I just couldn't be bothered to stretch for a throw that was wide of 1st and I felt really bad after.
