I was diagnosed with acute glaucoma about 28 years ago. I went to the hospital to find out what was going on and they kept me in and after three days, operated on one eye. The second operation, on the other eye, was done a few weeks later at the Bushey BUPA hospital but I have to say the NHS hospital was far better because I was on a specialist ward and they knew what they were doing but the private hospital didn't have such a facility and they were general nurses. After a little while, I stopped using the eye drops and had my pressures checked regularly. About four years ago, I had cataracts on both eyes and had two operations to remove them then last year, I had a cloudy substance growing over them and this was treated with laser surgery.
About 20 years ago I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis which caused me to have a few embarrassing experiences but also very painful. I'm pleased to say, it's been in remission for several years and hope it stays that way.
