  1. The eye is looking pretty good for 7 weeks did you have a full thickness cornea transplant? Also, thought I would mention that the eyebank that your cornea came from,is able to get communication to the donor family that has lost their love one and given you a great gift. Some people chose to send a card or a letter some don’t but in my experience it has been very helpful. Best of luck with your recovery!

  2. i must say ur doing pretty well. I had a transplant early this year en am doing fyn aswell…its eleven months hasnt been easy but its good to read the experiences of others so tht we can strengthen and advise each other…the transplant was on both my eyes also due to keratoconus.The transplant feels like a second chance.Thanxx for sharing.
