My mom had one eye done in late 2020 and the other in early 2021, so both during the pandemic. She was much more frustrated by the logistics of the multiple appointments (difficult scheduling due to Covid, weather-related complications, sheer number of check-ins needed) than anything else. She was barely physically affected and basically went about her usual business. 

”Mom, I told you I would cook.”

”I know, but I’m bored.”

”Can you even see well enough to do that?”

”Well, everything’s tinged blue through the eye they’ve already done and yellow through the eye they haven’t done yet. It’s interesting.” 

I got cataracts removed from both eyes during the summer of 2020, and while it did involve multiple appointments, all went smoothly. I was legally blind without my contacts previously, and when the doctor removed my cataracts, he inserted special lenses in my eyes (permanently) and now for the first time in my life, I can see without contacts or glasses! I do need reading glasses to see up close. But modern medicine can sometimes work miracles.

I'm glad the National Guard is really helping. Thanks for that report. A heartfelt tip of my hat to all medical/hospital staff. Truly. Thank you all. From the bottom of my heart.

I'd thought that by now (mid-January) I would be enjoying an extended road trip in the warmth of the desert Southwest (AZ), to get a break from Denver winters. I'm not worried about getting dangerously ill with COVID; I'm vaxxed and boosted although I'm old. But I'm aware that hospitals (and I think the medical care system in general) everywhere are just so full and stressed right now. I'd rather not risk getting sick or injured while far away from home with things as they are. I'm hanging out here in town for awhile longer. 

In the meantime I've been exploring the possibilities of taking some Amtrak trips later in the year. Which has led me to railcams and train watching via YouTube. A new hobby. 

My husband and I have taken a couple of Amtrak trips, in a roomette. That gave us the comfort and privacy we craved along with socializing with fellow travelers at mealtimes and in the observation car. I don't know what it's like now during COVID, but we really enjoyed traveling that way. I'd like to eventually do a train trip in Canada.  Internet was spotty on Amtrak, but we had books, games and whatever we had downloaded to keep us entertained. And there's always scenery, except at night, when we slept like babies as the train rocked along!

Does anyone have any recent experience with cataract surgery?  My mom found out this week that her vision has drastically changed so much in 6 months, that she'll be needing it sooner rather than later.  I'm worried about her being by herself through it.  I know she has folks that can take her to the various appointments, but since my dad passed away, she's alone.  Between Covid and my own health issues, it's looking like I cannot be with her.  Chances are, I'm going to be needing 3 or 4 specialist appointments between the beginning of February and end of May.  Sometimes it sucks to be an only child.

I just got off the phone with my old boss, who recently had cataract surgery on both eyes. She was ecstatic about the results and she said the process was fantastic and the actual surgery was over before she knew it. If your Mom goes to a fairly busy practice, I think she'll have people assisting who are very professional and kind. I hope she's as happy with the results as my friend is! I think it was 1 or 2 weeks between surgeries and she wound up with better vision than she'd had in years!

I had about a week between surgeries, but my vision was excellent by the next day. It’s truly a miracle procedure .

Love having cataract surgery.  I paid for the lenses, instead of the ones offered by insurance, and don't need anything but readers, but hated the readers (on and off) so eye doctor gave me a prescription for glasses with no correction on top, progressing to reading strength on bottom.  I love them.  I have worn glasses since I was 7 years old and never cared about going without glasses.  But the vision change is nothing short of a miracle.  Both my procedures were easy peasy, no pain, no real recovery except drops.  I had the second one done on a Thursday and went to Mexico on Saturday.  My restrictions were "don't lift your own suitcase, don't bend forward for a few days, and don't get seawater in your eyes".  So I had a wonderful trip, brought the drops, no problems.  Highly recommend.

Thank you all so much for the surgery info.  I spoke with her today, and she's actually looking forward to it.  She's been wearing contacts since I was born and had glasses since early childhood.  She'll be 69 in a few weeks and is remarkably healthy.  My in-laws both had cataract surgery last year, and they were both so glad they did it, save for the timing of Covid.  She'll be going to the same practice they went to, and it's one of the largest and best known in the area.  At least she won't have to travel into Pittsburgh for anything. After talking to her today and reading your posts, I'm feeling better about not being able to be with her.  Thank you all again!

I had cataract surgery on my left eye when I was 55, and my right eye when I was 59. I was EXTREMELY anxious about it, trembling and nearly having a full-blown panic attack when I was in the chair and the ophthalmologist was about to begin. At that point, my eye had already been numbed, my head fixed into a pillow-like vise, and a bright light was shining in my eye. He asked me to tell him if anything specific was making me anxious, and I said "yes -- what if I have to sneeze at the very moment the knife is plunged into my eyeball????" and he replied "well, you don't have to worry about that at all..... because I'm done! You can go now!" Needless to say, I was perfectly relaxed when I got the second eye done!

The other thing I remember about it is when I had the "pre-surgical screening". There was a health questionnaire, and the nurse was reading the questions to me and writing down my answers. I noticed that she skipped the question "what was the date of your last period?" and I got a little huffy! She said that most of their female patients are over 70 so she skips the question out of habit! She must've taken note that I seemed insulted, because when I was there a few years later for the second eye, she didn't skip the question!

The surgery & recovery was a breeze, and it was absolutely miraculous to have perfect distance vision after 50 years of wearing glasses. Not to mention having the cataract "cloud" lifted. Truly amazing. Hard to fathom that less than 100 years ago people were still going blind from this.

Hearing all the good surgery stories are making me feel better.  I’m having a robotic assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy on Thursday, and even though I asked the doctor for the procedure, I’m getting very anxious. What if something goes wrong and they knick an organ or have to take my ovaries?  Granted I’ve had two myomectomies and don’t want a third but it’s still worrying.

Some of you may remember I got my infertility diagnosis last year.  I’m doing okay with that but this is not at all how I thought this journey would end.  I keep asking myself am I making the right decision.

Same here. I had a massive uterine tumor. So large that it wasn’t possible to do laparoscopic surgery, and so I have a vertical scar from my navel to the top of my pubic bone. But it was worth it! Recovery was quite easy and I’ve had no problems since. You’ll do great @Ijustwantsomechips!

When I had my hysterectomy my uterus was attached to my bladder with scar tissue that formed after my C-Section (less than a year between the two). Surgery/gas pain was rough but I immediately noticed a difference with it gone after a lifetime of pain. It was the best decision I’ve made and I have no regrets having had one! 
 

However, I do get really shit comments about it from people, but still, Amazing!

That's me. I'm still waiting for a surgery date. I had my MRI 12/27, and they sent the report to the doctor right away, but not the images. Call. Even though I signed a release specifying they needed to be sent, they "didn't know they were supposed to" send images. They sent them electronically. Doctor can't access them. Call. Where are the hard copies? Not sent, because "no one told them". I told them. They were overnighted, and should have gotten to the doctor Friday. Office was closed yesterday. I had better hear something today...
But I think @Ijustwantsomechips has been having issues for quite a while too. It seems to be a common theme with women and hysterectomies. It takes years to get anything done.

thats great news on your birthday. i had mine done when i was very young - 29. to be honest for Ijustwantsomechips, that first year was hard to adjust for me  but mostly emotionally. (i had 4 little kids at home between age 1-8). they left me one ovary to avoid full menopause BUT started me on hormones anyway. it was a rough adjustment that first year of back and forth dosages. all that said, i would HANDS DOWN do it again tomorrow if i needed to. it gave me my life back.  i dont know your age, but if they offer you the hormone cream to insert nightly, take that. it helps avoid basically the shriveling up of your vagina ( can i say that?).  they should have told me that years ago and it would have saved me lots of pain and trouble. but in the end, its worth it.

Happy birthday @Turquoise! Best wishes on your surgery and a speedy recovery. No one told me the Ultrasound department wouldn’t call with my results so I waited an entire month before getting it scheduled. That was last September/early October.

And thanks to @Scarlett45 @jcbrown @Cinnabon @NotthebadVictoria and all the well wishers. Unfortunately, surgery has been rescheduled. I went for my pre-op appointment Friday and took a COVID test. Of course the results came back positive yesterday 🤬🤬🤬Now y’all know I’ve been having COVID symptoms since December 30, and my test comes back positive 6 days before surgery.  The hospital recommended waiting 30 whole damned days, so now my op date is March 3rd. MARCH 3RD!!!
 

The thought of having two more periods literally has me depressed and in bed. I’m so ready for this phase of life to be over. How the hell am I supposed to keep myself safe and healthy for the next 6 weeks when my job wants me back at work Thursday because the only symptom they consider is a fever, which I don’t have, so they want me back COVID and all.  And my jackass of a supervisor has us traveling to the northern part of the state next week to conduct 10 in person trainings in three different cities.

Their thinking is as long as you don’t have a fever you don’t have symptoms so it’s safe for you to return to work after five days. So people have been coming to work without getting a negative test, and most people wear their masks incorrectly in the building.  But they completely ignored the CDC’s guidance on not traveling.  And let’s be honest here, five days is not enough quarantine which is why there’s talk the CDC (who I have no confidence in at this point) will probably change it back to 10 days.  No one in my family has had a fever except the baby, but we had the other symptoms because we’ve all had COVID.  My head wants to explode and I feel like I’ve been flogged with a thousand whiffle bats.  Surely that counts as symptoms.

I understand. I work retail and while my company has been great about Covid ( don't come to work testing positive and has actually adjusted store hours for people being sick) normally people have had to work with flu, colds ect. It just seems like companies would wake up and understand that it is counterproductive to have people work sick. Can you report them to Osha?

One of my daughters works for Amazon. Just putting this out there for anyone who may be interested, or for anyone who may know someone who may be interested. It applies to all full time employees at all levels.

She is planning on having a baby in the near future.


This is the leave she can take, from a text she sent me:

 Amazon offers four weeks prior to your due date paid 100%, eight weeks after paid 100%, and then eight weeks of a Ramp Back Program, where you still get 100% of your salary but work 50% of your hours.
 

The time can be split in half and used two separate times within a year of the birth.
My son-in-law would also be eligible for leave and works for Amazon also.

There are many things that suck about Amazon, this isn’t one of them. 
 

They also cover infertility treatments, and contribute toward the cost of adoption.

Amazon hires contingent workers and temps through staffing agencies and consulting companies. It’s one way to get hired. It wouldn’t be my ideal choice, if I didn’t have benefits elsewhere.

I agree with you but in retail it is difficult.  In the company I work for all employees are required to wear a mask when a customer is in the store. I my store we also wear a mask when n we are near each other.  We are not allowed to ask a customer to put on a mask. One reason is there have been instances of customers being aggressive when this is done. Another reason, though not talked about,  is frankly we cannot afford to lose a sale. In an office I am sure some people would quit before wearing a mask and they may have a problem replacing them. I see no reason  iwantsomechips should be made to work when ill whether it's in office or traveling.  That's is just wrong.

I understand with recent current events there may be a desire to discuss political social media posts of those in the Duggar realm- this is not the place for those discussions. If you believe someone has violated forum rules, report them, do not respond or engage.

Political discussion is not allowed in this forum- this includes Small Talk topics. Please stay in the spirit of the policy- I have noticed a tendency for some to follow the letter but not the spirit.
