burning eyes after surgery?

Hi Princesses!

I haven't seen this condition mentioned in the posts before and wonder if any of you had extreme burning and itching of your eyes when you first gained consciousness in the recovery room. My LAVH was Jan. 20. My eyes burned so badly that I couldn't open them for about an hour. I do have what's known as "dry eye syndrome", and the nurses thought I had a bad reaction to the drops that the anesthetist routinely puts in the eyes to protect and moisten them during surgery. Have any of you ever heard of this before?

It's no longer a problem, I just thought it was odd!

I hope all of you are recovering quickly!
Oodles of hugs

burning eyes after surgery?

Hi Gadaboutgal,
I couldn't understand why my eyes were so sore after surgery, (11/20/03) I never gave this a thought before about the eyes drying out and needing drops. I would imagine this seems like the most logical reason for sore eyes. I can always remember my mom saying in the past after quite a few surgeries that her eyes were never "right" afterwards. I know that my eyesight is getting worse (close up) as I get older but since my surgery it seems even more of a struggle to read that small print! I will have to get another prescription for new readers!
Glad yours are no longer a problem,
Love and hugs,

TAH/BSO. 11/20/03

burning eyes after surgery?

I have the same issues with my eyes due to scar tissue. When I don't sleep well I get pain and burning. I also have eczema on my skin. I talked to my dr. and she told me that I would be better off bringing my own eye drops and skin care stuff. I know that they work and I know that I am not allergic to anything.

The only thing that I didn't know about was an allergic reaction to the catheter tubing. Lots of ichy skin and a curly cue mark still on my legs.

There is always something!!
