I woke up this morning to some minor burning/itching so right away I took a Percocet and Motrin. My follow-up appointment was at 8:25 so not much time so ff we went. After sitting there for about 15 minutes the doctor checked my vision and how my eyes were progressing.
I was at 20/25, very good for PRK surgery at this point in the recovery. Typically, they expect around 20/40 the day after. Sweet!!!
Primarily, day one post-surgery consisted of tearing, catnaps, more tearing, movies, and more tearing. Later in the day, I took a quick trip to Walmart with Jen and Connor, otherwise, I mostly stayed downstairs. My vision seemed to fluctuate throughout the day.
I would have put the days pain level at a 2 out of 10 until right before bed. I had been laying there with my eyes closed and went to open them. The left eye felt stuck together and I must have scratched something. It hurt pretty bad! maybe 5 out of 10. I popped another Percocet and went to sleep right after the nighttime medicine drops. Thankfully, I slept through the night and woke up without any pain. Today and/or tomorrow are supposed to be the worse days, so far so good. Wish me luck!
