    Detatched Retina

    Anyone ever gone through this and had the operation? I had it done to my right eye and next Monday will be a month post procedure. Let me know if you had it done and what your recovery was like. Thanks for the time gents. The worst part was missing out on a planned trip this upcoming Wednesday to Montreal : not allowed to fly for a while.

    Me too my retina was detached, well shattered completely and my doctor tried to reattach it but was unable to do it. I am blind from one eye and the doctor put oil in they eye, lastvisit knows what i am talking about. I was told by my doctor not to fly for at least 6 months, but can be confirmed by your doctor. I hope this was helpful and good luck

    I know someone who had it done and it took six weeks to fully recover. Good luck and be patient, you don't want to through that again.

    My brother had it done, he recovered in about six weeks too.

    Most important thing is avoid any kind of impacts or bumps. No running, jogging (he is a marathoner), or high impact cardio.

    No biking either.

    Thanks to all who replied : I appreciate your input. Sorry to hear of your story Tinman. I can understand how it can happen now to anyone. I was warned off exercise as well as all have noted. On the list of things to not do they also included "no intercourse". Given my state i still thought it was pretty amusing. Thanks again for your time gents.
