Discussion: retinal detachment recovery time

LARRY- ANY AFTER EFFECTS like floaters after your recovery ? it feels like my eyeball is 3/4 full of water and slushes around when i move my head. i imagine the gas will dissapate as time goes by. i am finding it very difficult to lie on my stomach 15 min out of every hour, but i am doing my best because i must do so to make the recovery time faster. i imagine your eye is doing very well after your procedure, as you have no problem hitting the ball. thanks, frankie

Discussion: retinal detachment recovery time

doc and larry- really appreciate your responses. this laying down on my face for 15 minutes " every " hour is getting old . but needs to be done. the weird thing about the operated eye, is that it feels and looks like my eyeball is 3/4 full of water and slushes around when i walk around or tilt my head ( must be the gas ). the vision at this point is like looking thru a very muddy windshield and if i close my good eye, the operated eye makes blurry images look twice as big as they really are. i had cataract surgery done in jan. of this year, wonder if this contributed to this problem. LARRY- good luck in reno and hope to " SEE " ya down the road . DOC- may take you up on your offer if i have more questions. thanks to both of you.! frank, texas wildcatters 70's

Discussion: retinal detachment recovery time

had a retina detachment of my left eye this past saturday, started as a large black shadow on the outside of my left eye. unable to see a doctor until tuesday, operation was done same day, complete with a gas bubble. i am suppose to lay face down for 15 minutes every hour, and sleep on my left side due the procedure done the left eye. QUESTION : any of you boys gone thru this ? what was your experience and anything in particular that would have made your recovery time faster and easier. the main thing : did it work out okay, and got back normal vision, any effects in playing softball? doctor says not to run or play softball for about 4-6 weeks. would appreciate your experience. thanks !

Discussion: What have Been Your Experiences With PVD?

there is a eye doctor in south florida that uses a laser to work on floaters are too annoying. name is SCOTT GELLER. I HAVE NEVER USED HIM, but if you are have problems and the floaters dont go away, maybe this doctor might be an option. it doesnt hurt to check his website. best of luck with your problem. www.vitreousfloaters.com

Discussion: IS SURF88 THE ONLY REP THAT DOES ANYTHING FOR REEBOK?

FIRST OF ALL: 1) i am not ed andrews brother in law, family friend,etc. the following is a copy of my post from 2011: take as you wish and whatever it's worth in considering ed's involvement with reebok problems. i am sure my sentiments can be reflected by quiet a few players that post on here. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Aug. 4, 2011

Discussion: Reebok Customer Service

got mine in jan of 2011, broke in 70 deg heat (35 hits). i got ahold of ed andrews, he got in touch in the r & d dept and got me an rma. i sent back the bat for inspection late jan. i mentioned to ed andrews that i would be at the T.O.C. in florida in feb. i got a surprise call on my cell during the T.O.C. , one of the reebok sales boys, met me at the banquest in the hanger and brought me a brand new bat. i dont think anybody else would have done what these people did. i appreciated the extra effort. i have broken 7-8 miken bats in the last 5-7 years, i have never gotten a replacement from them. maybe reebok is having a few problems with some bats, but at least they are trying to make things right in replacing the broken ones. i can not speak for their customer service people, i only dealt with ed andrews , and he is trying to help everybody. if you back track the old posts thru jan. on this website, you 'll see that ed has been fully engaged in the reebok problem. the replacement i got in feb is still going strong, never used it in less than 65 deg weather. in case you are wondering, i dont know ed andrews and i am not a reebok sales rep. frank armijo texas legends 65's PS: hope you all resolve your problems

Discussion: reebok bat

BARRY- ever since the reebok melee senior bat came on the scene about 1 yr ago, there has been one reebok sales guy that gone to bat ( pardon the pun ) and has helped anybody that has bought and had a problem with a reebok bat. his name is ed andrews , cell #970-728-3144 , he lives in colorado. if you back track any reebok posts over the last few months, you'll see that he has been pretty involved with any problems that involves the MELEE SENIOR BAT. give him a call and explain the situation , you got nothing to lose . GOOD LUCK !

Discussion: best sunglasses for softball

you come up to bat and the sun is looming large and bright in your eyes, no clouds around. early and late games in particular. the pitcher knows this and tries to have the ball come out of the sun. i had a pair of polarized sunglasses, but still had one hell of a time seeing the ball, let alone trying to hit it. end result, 2 feeble grounders to 2nd base and one strikeout,completely missed the ball. more embarassing, the fans and players watching the game were snickering . what a helpless feeling. have you guys solved this problem ? it doesnt happen very often,but it will, especially in arizona and las vegas. are you aware of any mfgr that makes sunglasses that can help solve this problem. any input is appreciated. thanks
