For those who don’t know, Enucleation is the medical term for removal of an eye.
Since January of this year I have had terrible eye pain and a lot of treatment for it. This has included a couple of minor operations. I’ve reached the point where I feel I need to get my life back and, because I lost the remainder of my eyesight in February so the eye is no longer any use to me, the decision has been made to remove it.
In a sense I’m quite looking forward to this as eye pain day in and day out is very wearing. I can’t wait to be able to just do what I want when I want again without the pain.
I’m also hugely scared!
So I have decided to write about the next few weeks in this blog. The operation is scheduled for 21st June.
