i am scheduled in this Friday to get my chalizion removed in my upper right eyelid..
the doctor told me they would remove it from underside to prevent it from leaving a scar.
I am quite worried about the after effect of blinking and how long will it take so i don't feel anything.
Also even with local anesthetic is there still some pain?
the doctor also told me they cant guarantee that it will all be removed..
Should i go ahead with it??? any opinions
After the surgery the eye gets a little swollen but it gets better. Surgery doesn't hurt that much.
"One big cluster" is what my doc called it
it was like like 2 big chalazions attached to one another on the upper lid
and a big bump right in the lower tear duct of my eye
the freezing needle was a little painful and after having 2 injections i had another 2 just so assure that the area was indeed frozen
the procedure was not that bad as i did not feel anything except a little pressure on my eye
after the proceure was done my doc had a look at my eye and said he just wanted to double check something
so he put the clamp back on and at this point some of the anasthesia had worn off so it was VERY PAINFUL and i told him so he quickly finished up
after he put a patch over my eye... at this point i was in extreme pain
this was probably the most painful part
the whole car ride home was terrible.. i quickly popped in some pain killers and i was fine
and it is now the day after and i don't feel any pain
it is very bruised and a little swollen though
I PRAY I NEVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN! :'(
one on the upper and one on the lower
my eye is healing and the top lid does not look the same as the other lid but there is no longer a bump the lower lid is a little bruised but i still feel the lump! it's like the same lump as before but just SMALLER i am so sad about this
i really don't want to be stuck with another one
or have to go through a surgery again
any advice ???????
The first surgery hurt like hell and it was very uncomfortable. Especially the injection, I even screamed (even though I am a girl I have a very high pain threshold). Then for the second surgery I looked for another doctor, this one seemed to be more capable of operating me, and the surgery was A LOT better, it didn't hurt at all (it was only slightly uncomfortable but very bearable) and the day after the swelling was almost gone.
The lump WILL go away eventually. I still have a small bump but it's slowly disappearing. The last time it took me about three to four weeks for the bump to flatten (I remember that because I started wearing my contacts again a month after the sugery), but since this time the chalazion was slightly bigger, it will probably take longer, but I don't care. But don't worry, the final result is excellent and no one will notice you had any eye-related problems.
Good luck. ;-)
How long does it typically take for the lump to completely flatten? I am at week 3 today. Thanks.
detailing how long you had your chalazion
and the progress after surgery (ie how long scar tissue or the lump was there)
and if there are still remnants, how big and noticeable are they?
this would be greatly appreciated!
I also have these bumps on my eye, they get pretty big, first I thought they were stys, but now I'm sure they are chalazions.
However, they start off big in the 1st 2-3 days, but get smaller at the end of the week. They still kind of are there, though.
Well latest, I got another one. This time in the bottom of my eye-lid. Hopefully this one at least reduces in size, I will be able to tolerate that.
it took the hospital 6 chuffing months to decide to remove and now a double the sized one its place!
i know this sounds stupid and petty, but since ive had - ive not wore any eye makeup- in fact i threw it all away. and i dont feel like going out anywhere or doing anything because its so noticeable and i cant even get dressed up nicely for parties - and i have so many weddings this summer.
arrr im just fed up!!
