I was told I would only need a week recovery and ended up having to cancel a few meetings. I looked like I was run over by a car for a good 2 weeks following. I'm just now emerging from my cocoon at 3 weeks post, but laying low.... READ COMMENT

I had upper and lower bleph surgery a little over 2 weeks ago, one eye healed up perfectly but it waters incessantly. The other eye has much thicker scarring and a droop in the lower lid that makes me very self conscious. Any tips to... READ COMMENT
