Just wishing you good luck but can say from OH,s treatment that Clatterbridge and all its staff are absolutely amazing. So supportive and caring. Good luck again.

Well, I'm home again. The fixing on of the four tantalum "washers" to the back of my eye was painful,  (they cut a couple of muscles to swivel my eye to the side).

The proton beam radiation was easy peasy, no pain whatever,  I told the nurses I had seen a twinkling blue light while the beam was running.  This turned out to be "Cerenov radiation", they don't tell you about it beforehand because most people don't see it (so they keep quiet about it)!

So, back to Bath in 3 weeks then back to Liverpool in 6 months.

Thanks to all for your kind words and wishes.  Cheers,   Tony.

Well done.  I am glad you are home, do what you like when you like.   You are brave, it sounds awful.  :ohmy:  Take it easy, and I am sure you will follow all the things you have been told to do. best regards, Mrs Bouquet

Just picked this up - pleased things went well for you. Sounds really scary. There was me moaning about needing another cataract operation.. puts it into perspective.
Best of luck for the long term.

Oh well done you! It's a bit frightening when people fiddle with your eyes but it's so worth it in the end.

Thank goodness it was caught so early on.  The treatment doesn't sound like a walk in the park but if it had progressed, it would have been so much worse.

Pleased it went’well’. How brave of you, I’m very squeamish where eyes are concerned & think I’d have needed the knock out drops if available. Wishing you a full recovery.
