Prolapsed Lacrimal Gland
The short answer to your questions is simple. When you are fully healed, the gland should be recessed underneath the brow bone and you shouldn't be able to feel it. Scar tissue will form around the gland and help to suspend it like a sling. Allow 2-3 weeks for the swelling, bleeding and inflammation to subside. At this point in time it is not reasonable to trust what you are feeling. Give the healing process adequate time and share your concerns with your doctor. Failure is unlikely.
