Unilateral Ptosis After Flu and Hyperthyroid? (photo)
I had a unilateral muller muscle repair for a levator dehiscense 16 months ago on the left eye. 4 months later my right eye appeared to be droopy and my oculoplastic surgeon did a repair on the right eye, which was overcorrected and required more surgery. My eyelids have been completely symmetrical for 11 months until I came down with the flu and woke up with a big right eye with swelling that I felt behind my eye. I am also midly hyperthyroid (0.01) for about 16 months. Could this be TED?
It is possible
