RE: [IP] I can see, but the eye doctor can't.
I was lucky enough to be referred to an excellent retinal specialist by my
regular eye Dr. and he has never said anything like that to me. He had to do
laser on one of my eyes a few years ago after I had my son and he said it was
mainly caused by the extremely high blood pressure right before I had him
(toxemia). I probably wouldn't have had any problems yet if it wasn't for that
and it all cleared up wonderfully. I have been diabetic for 22 years and my
son will be 6 in January.
I didn't have real good control for many years, but now since I have found the
right team of doctors and am on a pump I'm doing great. My retinal specialist
said he has seen many diabetic patients and he is just amazed at how good the
condition of my eyes are for having diabetes for so many years, so please do
find another Dr.!!!
Some old ideas die a slow death. My mom was positive because of what all her
friends told her that I would, no question, have to have a cesarean when I had
my son, but guess what - it never happened.
