Still feeling sick: general malaise, headache, sore throat, painful pressure in throat on bending over. So off to the urgent care. They think just a virus, although no coughing, discharge, no pain on swallowing. They don’t think it is related to eye drops. So I guess I just wait it out.

Still pretty punk, and I think maybe related to all the medications going into my eye. The first week a total of 16 applications a day of 6 different things. This week down to 12.
Went to see the cataract guy today, and he has dropped me down to 4 drops per day, 3 of prednisolone and 1 of prolensa. Anyway he thinks things are quite dandy. There is a small piece of the old cataract in there, which he thinks will get absorbed eventually. Pressure in the eye at 18, within normal bounds. Vision seems ok, and he says it should improve once the cyclopentolate wears off. That is a powerful eye dilator and will take a few days to clear my system.
Anyway, side effects I am dealing with, real or imaginary, are headache, fatigue, sore throat, somewhat upset stomach. Doesn’t seem like a cold.

With Rhonda, from PV. She was not inclined to take the microspikes out in the back yard.

Most of the exercises, but 3 or 4 of them seem to put a lot of strain on my head and throat, so I am going to stop them for a while. Feeling a bit delicate.

First time in a while. I’ve been waiting for the strain in my right forearm to calm down, which it seems to have, and then I have been on restricted activity since the eye surgery, so this is the first opportunity. Not pushing it.

Most of the exercises. Feeling a bit strange, and the bent over positions in particular caused me some pain in the throat and a bit of a headache. Strange feeling, maybe a side effect of all the eye drops.
