Congrats and all the best for success!! Sorry to hear about the sight problems and hope it's gone in a few days.
Refresh my memory - what was the type of surgery?

Have the nurses given you anything to help with the swelling around your eyes?
When I had my surgery my eyes swelled up aswell. The nurses gave me a patch with witch hazel on it which helped with the swelling around the eyes.
My left eye started to swell the day after the surgery & eventually I had trouble opening it. My left eye started to get better 3 days after the surgery but by that time my right eye started to swell up. By the time I was released from hospital 5 days after surgery the swelling had gone down on both eyes but they were both bruised but from memory I think the bruising around the eyes was only there for a few days.

You are still at the early stage of your recovery so you still need to give your brain time to adjust.

I was sensitive to noise for the 1st 2 - 3 weeks after my surgery, everything echoed.

The headaches will ease of eventually. When I sleep I tend to toss & turn so found only sleeping on my right side after the surgery hard. Not long after my surgery I would turn onto my left side so in the end I got some pillows & put them straight down on the left side of my pillow which helped stop me from going on the left side. I think it was almost 3 months after my surgery before I could sleep on my left side without it bothering the scarring.
