Hello ladies i have finally found the courage to write a post on here after many weeks of lurking . My name is yolanda and i came home on Jan 21 after being in the hospital for 2 weeks after i develop severe pre-e and hellp, It was the worst experience of my life and very scary. Baby and I are doing well now and very blessed that we made it and i almost feel normal with the exception of my vision.
After I woke from my emergency c-section to see my baby and a room full of family i notice my right eye was blurry and i was seeing double vision and big brown floaters in the room. I didn't know what was going on, I mention it and family and hubby were confused but no one really came in with answer. so i kept my eye closed for a few days and then i notice that the blurry and double vision went away as well as those huge brown floaters but my vision was still not the same. I couldn't watch the tv or the light was too bright but through out the days i was in the hospital i saw improvements, like i was able to tolerate watching tv and when i came home i was able to read my txt message on my phone and even be able to look at the computer screen and watch tv with out my eye straining or hurting.
Tomorrow will be 1 month since the horrific event and my vision is still not the same. my left eye is fine although i notice today i started seeing lil dots during the day if i go outside but if i cover my bad eye i notice the dots dont appear so im not sure if im seeing them from my left or right . As far as my right eye (the bad one) when i cover my good eye what i see is a bit blurry and and some objects appear further away, and if i look at my hubby face i feel like there is a brown cloud on the center of my vision but i can see through it but not clear but his face appears disoriented and smaller almost like those crazy mirros at the carnivals his forhead appears longer but eyes nose and face appear like they shrunk. if im looking at his face up close it looks normal but color is a bit off but nothing major. Now with both eyes open i see colors the same but the problem is that my vision feels like its not even its very hard to explain its not blurry with both open its just dosent feel even and it feels like i have something in my eye. Another weird thing is during the day if i go out i wear my shades my vision almost feels normal. I just dont get why that is. sometimes i feel my vision is imporving but then it feels like nothing has change. My blood pressure was 220 when i went in , my bp is normal now , not sure if that makes a difference.
My hubby constantly tells me to just give it time and that it will return to normal , and that i went through a lot (which i did) and not to worry about it. But im not sure he understand , i cannot imagine seeing like this forever. I feel like i m not myself due to this and sometimes always on the verge of tears
I have schedule an appt with the ophthalmology next week to see what they say, Im really scare at what they will find but i really need answers , But in the mean time just wanted to see if any has had their vision similar to mine and did it return to normal? How long did it take ? Im really desperate for answers
Thanks in advance!
