Hello fellow diabetics. My first time posting, although I’ve throughly enjoyed reading through a lot of posts
Well… I had my first vitreous hemorrhage almost one year ago in my left eye. I was diagnosed with PDR by a doctor in New Jersey and flew straight home to MN to begin treatment. Within the past year, I had one small VH in my right eye as well. Two laser sessions in left along with multiple shots. 1 laser session In right with multiple shots. Ive had small floaters for the past year but no more large VH’s.
And of course, almost on my 1 year VH anniversary, boom! Large bleed in left eye this morning . I even went in last week because I thought I was seeing new floaters. He reassured me the the abnormal blood vessels were regressing and no treatment was needed. But of course a large bleed one week later. Ugh…
So… he gave me a shot of Lucentis and said that my normal doc may prefer to do more laser. I’m obviously worried about losing my peripheral vision.
what has your experience been? Do you still continue to get VH’s? I guess I had two in my left eye within a 12 month time frame so I cant complain too much? I just dont want this current bleed to take months or even weeks to clear.
ive been exercising the last year and my A1c’s have been below 7 with a vey low standard deviation. Is there anything else I should be doing? My blood pressure is also in good range.
