Aboiut 15 weeks ago, my left eye had a retinal tear and small detached area repaired by cryo and a small gas bubble. Those repaired areas were fine, but at my 2 week followup, a circumferential 360 degree detachment of my retina was present. About 11 weeks ago, that was repaired by vitrectomy, laser, scleral buckle, and my eye was filled with SF6 gas. After 7 weeks of face-down recovery, my bubble was small enough to go face-up. My retina was reportedly in excellent recovery.
