I wanted a second opinion because nothing was working with the original doc and she never seemed sure of herself and the treatments she was prescribing.
This new doc is older, more confident, and more aggressive with treatment. His prescription is a stronger steroid drop every two hours I am awake. I go back in a week for follow up.
He also said all the steriods are starting to cause a cateract to grow in my left eye. The additional steriods are only going to make it continue to grow. If I don't use the steriods, I will continue to have trouble from the shingles. If I do use the steriods I will get more cataract growth. And no cataract surgery unless there is no active shingles for at least 3 months.
I would love to hear your perspective on this...what would you do? and why? What do you think?
