My mother recently underwent an outpatient procedure to help her
eyelid close over her eye. Weeks after the surgery she has
constant tenderness and aching in the eye. She has no vision
when looking up. Her eyelid will now not open to expose more tahn
2/3 of the eye. Her eyelid is still very swollen.
The doctor is recommending a second procedure, but she is
wary that the situation may become worse. Has anyone out
there had a similar procedure with such complications? We
are not sure if this is normal and if there is risk that
repeated procedures may cause excess scar tissue that will
lead to permanent damage.
