I'm so done with the eye doctor! If there's anything that's more annoying than being in the middle of two doctors who disagree on the way I should be treated for something, then please tell me about the alternative!
Today I had a follow up appointment with the eye specialist here in Red Bank for the severe chronic dry eye I've been dealing with since March. I went to him a month ago, and he put me on Systane 5 times a day. He said if that didn't work, then he wanted to put plugs in my eyes. Well, my oncologist, from his years of experience with bone marrow transplants, wants me to be treated right off the bat with Restasis. He says this is the proper treatment for what I am suffering from in my eyes. WELL, when I told the eye doctor this today, he replied with, "Well, he's not the eye specialist is he?"
Wow.. I mean c'mon, this guy completely just lost my business! I was there for 10 minutes, he didn't want to hear a word I said and I was done. Nice. So I'm going to have to call my oncologist back and just go all the way up to north jersey so see the Princeton specialist who deals with Bone Marrow Transplant patients all the time.
All I know is that I can't wait for the weekend just to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunshine and warm weather! There's something about the spring time that just smells like freedom to me.
