    How are you feeling about your eyes now? Is the swelling all gone?

    Hi Debi,
    I’m having the same surgery done on July 3. I hope you’ll post more progress photos along the way. Did you take arnica or eat pineapple before or after? It’s supposed to help reduce bruising.

  4. Good Lord! First tattoos and now this.

    Hopefully everything will work as it should!! Fore it is hard telling now since everything is sill pretty swollen ( and also pretty painful, I assume!) Let me know the upcoming improvements!!

    • not nearly as painful as one would think. recovery is going pretty smoothly, still going out, doing things, concerts, dinners, etc., just wearing glasses to try to mask the discoloration.
