Gold Implant

You can clearly see the gold implant in my eyelid here and I am not a vain person that gives a damn about that, but its frikken being really painful right now. Like I am getting poked in the eyelid with a needle, so really glad I have an appointment this week to see the people who put it in. If the only option I have is to take it out, out it comes, even if that means my vision goes back to being blurry. Too painful to leave in.

You're one tough young woman...talented, too!
Sincerely,

Jennifer, it looks so awkward and uncomfortable! What is the gold meant to do for your eye?

Ouchhhhhhh! Don't give up yet. Hopefully, that intense pain lessens every day. Sending you hugs!!

Ahh - thank you. What happens if it's removed? Will the nerve regenerate somewhat [in its own time] ?

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

thanks Chris :) Next appointment is in March and then it should come out then :) told to put lotion on the scar to try to help :)

It should, it has almost 100% now, so the gold helped and the nerves do try to repair themselves, just takes time. If after a year there is no improvement, they consider the damage permanent. The nerve damage on the other side is about 90% normal from over a year ago, so it can sort of go back to normal lol
