What Could Happen if Part of the Lacrimal Gland is Removed?
Recently my wife had surgery to remove what her eye doctor believed to be a tumor. She has been in constant pain since the surgery so we went to a different doctor. He thinks the plastic surgeon removed part of the lacrimal gland and there never was a tumor. He is waiting on the pathology report to find out what was really removed. Will removing part of the gland cause her to be in so much pain? And can this be corrected?
