Sounds like you weren't treated very well but most likely the treatment was done correctly. I have no experience of the treatment but have had headaches just from the normal 'look at your eyes' going on for awhile. I'm sure lasers have the same kind of effect on your eye. All that light can just lead to a headache.

It sounds nasty but still better to be getting treatment.

Feeling rushed like that would have made me super anxious, you seem to have managed really well!! Glad you are this side of that experience!

I managed to pick up a booklet "Understanding eye conditions related to diabetes" from an opticians. It is published by the RNIB - the explanations would have been useful last week!

By contrast the cardiologists I have seen recently have all taken the time to explain things clearly which although serious does reduce stress and worry!

On Monday the ophthalmology department was running even more late than usual but it was a fairly good appointment. I had some more laser treatment as it appears the previous laser treatment had not been fully completed. I have seen four consultants in four visits and they vary tremendously in people skills – this one was by far the best and explained everything clearly.

I got the usual headache but after a bad hypo overnight lost most of Tuesday with a muggy headache!

Check up in four to six weeks but they could not make the appointment on the day!

The last Dr sounds more on your wavelength.  Hope the laser worked this time!

Appointment dates are getting on my nerves! Still not having a date for the follow up I rang them. Opps, they had not made it - did they lose me? Now it is not till early November as they are fully booked!
