    What kind of surgery did you have on October 11, and can you tell me more about the draining you are experiencing?

    First, I have to tell you that you need to be talking to your doctor about this in case you are having a complication that needs attention. I really don’t want you to be neglecting something that needs your doctor’s care. So please, get an appointment right away.

    That said, I’ve had a number of surgeries that have left me with sticky, eyes-stuck-shut-in-the morning type unpleasantness that lasts for six months or more, and the hard palate graft surgeries and orbital implant surgeries where there is a lot of invasiveness into the inner lining of the lower eyelid seem to result in that. If this is what you’re experiencing, I’m not saying you don’t need to see your doctor—please do that still!

    I hope this subject is not too much for those of you who haven’t been there. ;-)
