Posted here a couple of weeks ago about needing cataract surgery but doctors think it's too dangerous because I have epilepsy, NHS would do it with a general, feels like a sledge hammewr to crack a nut, but I tried another private hospital which has treated me well before.  Yes, hooray!!  He did question me thoroughly, but agreed a general's too much, and that I can stop seizures by taking Diaz.  And I only went this Thurs to ask for an appt, given one Fri,, unbeleivable, it'll cost but I don't care, being private they made a better eye exam finding out that I have some strange membrane as well as cataract affecting vision, it's difficult to remove so he's leaving it till I get rid of the cataract.  Hooray again!!
