Not directly a Spinal Problem


I just had cataracts surgery in my right eye. Painless, easy, 20 minute procedure. I went from 20/95 to 20/35 just 1 day after surgery! Doctor feels that there is no reason I cant get back down close to 20/20 within a month.

So, all new glasses for me....

Now, why I am posting this here? When my cataracts was not a result of old age, but instead it was medically induced, specifically by steroids. The number of ESI's I had over 10 years all added to this, but the fact there were never more than 3 a year left some spinal doctors puzzled. They all knew about ingested steroid impacts.

But what did me in was the 11 or so Shoulder and Hip Steroid injections over a 22 month period of time! Too much too fast!

My doctor did say I have a 50/50 chance of the other eye getting to the same point, since there is already signs of cataracts there. But based on my early results of the cataract surgery, PLEASE DO IT NOW!
