Three months ago I underwent orbital decompression, a very intense surgery to push my eyes back in the eye socket. My eyes were bulgy and painful. I am very happy I took the courage to do it and immensely grateful that not only my eye appearance is back to normal but that I don’t feel uncomfortable and in pain. I am taking the courage to share this with you because I want to support all the people with Graves’ disease and autoimmune disease and tell them that there is HOPE for all of you and things get better eventually. Accept this disease and be patient with yourself, be kind to yourself… Thank you, Dr. Douglas, Dr. Massry and your amazing team for giving me my eyes back!
