Oh dear, what you've mentioned is what I hoped I would not read, cp1943, however it's a timely reminder to repeat part of my origional post....... Perhaps, though, for anyone else coming across this thread, it's a blessing you did mention it. Anyway, I can understand your fear. I overcame any fear or negative thoughts by telling myself to relax and completely put myself in their hands, it really did work (for me anyway) despite what happened, I was ok going through the repair op. It's the only way I could handle it. I'll be doing the same on Wednesday, but it'll be much easier on this occasion since I discovered the surgeon has an excellent reputation. It's really only natural to feel a little hesitant, especially as it concerns the eyes, isn't it. As far as the blood levels are concerned, I thought every hospital must have the same policy, I guess some are just more cautious than others. I appreciate you taking time to reply and yes, I'm sure all will be well this time. Thank you also, NicolaB70. All these replies and good wishes fairly give you a boost. :clap: Incidentally, I was surprised to receive a letter so soon from the DVLA this morning, it contained my new 4 year extended driving licence. I really did think my medical report was going to put an end to my driving life. But, obviously it didn't. :thumbup: So unless I pop my clogs any time soon, here's to the next four years (at least) happy motoring. lol Thank you all again. willie.
