mae sure you keep taking the drops (although the bizarre paradox with the tobradex drops is that the Steropid in them actually prevents/slows wound helaing...wounds need inflammation to heal in the first stage. I actually stopped/cut down using steroid eye drops for 2 or 3 days post surgery to instigate wound healing - but with toradex,m it's all in one drop with the antibiotic, so the regimen must be continued...
While the wound is leaking slightly make sure you are clinically clean and take the antibiotics - I actually over-orescribed at this stage (but again ,m you cant really do whtis with tobradex, being all in one)..
I'm sure the hypotny will resolve spontaneously, -it does in 99% of cases...make sure you keep an eye on pressure every 2 or 3 days..if the leak continues, they make have to suture etc. Retinal swelling will be dealt with with the steroid drops..
What's your pressure at the moment?

I had pressure patch too...I had to keep it on for about 4 days which wasa pain (some doctors believe it's better not to use one)...I kept taking mine off to pop antibitotics in, then putting it back on.
It's a pain in the arse to be honest - but as long as you see an increase in pressure, you'll be fine. I'm afraid it's just wait and see at the moment. Hopefully it will move in the right dircetion within 3 days...
If you see some bendy lines and other visuals at this stage, dont freak out too much - it's the result of hypotony and will resolve..
chin up :o) two weeks on and you'll be feeling better

Blurred images probably a result of drops/post op recovery and hypotony...bendy lines definitely hypotony.
Just try to go with it as this stage - there is little more you can do. Make sure the pressure patch is consistently pressed to the eye and that you cannot blink under it..
all the best..Eyeball

Ps...try to get as much rest as possible - the more you can sleep/not irritate your eye (trying to blink etc)...the better. Just try to make time move on as quickly as you can...I actually had a few beers! (in the hotel) maybe not recommended tho! ;o)
pps...The Edge I've changed the heading of this post so people can see what's happening with you - hope that's ok?

If you eye pressure goes in the postive direction and you get out of hypotony (Under 5 or 6) within a week or two, the chnnces are you'll be fine...and even most people with londer-standing hypotony, it usually resolves - but at the moment, it's not worth stressing about.
See how you are in a few days...if it's going up, no worries! :o)
