  • Nov 11, 2018

    On 11/6, I received an injection of Orzudex into my left eye. I was very confused about the procedure: one doctor gave me a numbing shot, the other administered the rest of the procedure without much explaining. I was in great pain and could not see enough to drive home, which I managed somehow. The doctor did not tell me about possible side effects or how to handle the regime of eye drops I had been using prior to the injection. The doctor did give a partial reply to my email the next day. I contacted the doctor on call that evening because I was in panic. It was a bad visit, and I do not understand why there was no support and no concern about my well-being. I was just sent home and told I would be called the next day about my next appointment.
