Hello there! I am a new member and thought that maybe someone out there may be able to provide me with some insight. I just had a total disc replacement at the C5C6 level on October 29th. When I got out of surgery, my family members all displayed concerned looks. They asked what happened to my eye. The nurse said that it may just be swelling from tape used to keep my eyes closed. This didn't sound likely to me because both of my eyes would have been taped and my left eye was fine. Apparently my right eye was barely open at all. I could see out of it so I didn't realize there was a problem. The next day I talked with the anesthesiologist and my surgeon about it. The anesthesiologist said that it was likely that something during surgery affected the levator muscle. He said it had nothing to do with anesthesia. The surgeon suggested that it may be the anesthesia. I asked for alternatives to that cause and he said that it could be Horner's syndrome. He said that it could get better with time or it could be permanent. I wondered if there is anything I can do to help it and I wondered what the likelihood of its permanence is. Any experience and input on this subject would be much appreciated. Thank you so much!
