I'm not sure when I'll be back on DP

Just wanted to let my friends here know that I'm going to have surgery today.

The reason is because when I was a surfer, I used to repair boards. I've always worn glasses and thought they would serve as enough protection when I did did a quick fix, sanding resin to the fiberglass to repair a small ding.

Prior to my pending surgery today, I had 5 areas of my sinus removed, pterigiums removed (like a cateract, but on the whites of the eyes, very painful), all for not wearing saftey glasses and mask.

Now I am having lid surgery because the fiberglass creates cysts inside my lids that grow to the size of a large marble. They make my eyes look like someone hit me with a brick.. when the cyst breaks, I weep puss for days.

For years now, I've gone to an eye surgeon who removes them when they start, and he and my GP recommended I get this surgery to remove the scaring and lumps that remain. It is cosmetic, so there is no insurance to cover the cost.. it's all out of pocket.. nearly $7K.

My hope is that I will end these outbreaks and improve my vison.

I also hope anyone here who thinks they can skip the saftey googles and mask will reconsider.

The pre-op news says that I will be wearing bandages on my eyes for 5 days. Look ofrwards to seeing you all again next week.

I love you and miss you all.

I'm probably too late Granger

and the best to you and surgery. I suspect that the cysts that appear and then break and weep puss is what your body is suppose to do to heal itself. Over the years you have picked up dust and other bits of fiberglass and your body treats it as an enemy and ejects it. It uses puss and phlegm as the vehicle to transport it out. The sinus issue you had/have is the dust causing irritation when you breathe it in when working with the fiberglass.

I have been successful removing many toxins with the use of high quality fats like butter & coconut oil, moderate animal protein and low, low carbs. When our body gets the tools it needs it can do the work it must to remove toxins. Now this method takes longer than a few hours under the knife as your body must work on its schedule and not the doctor's.

Even injuries that I had 10 or 20 years ago have retraced. Sometimes the retracing last a few hours and sometimes it goes on for weeks and maybe months as your body throws out what it doesn't want and then rebuilds at the cellular level.

If you have vision problems it is probably because of the toxins from the fiberglass and subsequent surgeries that damage the area around the eye and combined perhaps with poor nutrition cause poor vision.

All is not lost and I'm sorry to be late with the ideas. After surgery is important as the drugs used and cutting tissue will require more repair and your body needs the tools like you need tools to do board work.

You warned everyone reading about the use of proper protection and likewise I will warn folks that the Doctor is inside. Inside you.

Good Luck

Don't let them add any more metals to your body.

Two disimilar metal in the body make a battery.

Say fillings and titanium staples. The internal battery tazers the nervous system, whether one feels it or not. It does affect thought processes.

I know a dozen people locally who have this problem. For them the pain is unquenchable. My spouse has told me of a dozen more. Two have since died and the doctors insist their no problem.

Pre-surgery nutrition is important. Ninety vitamins and mineral are needed to fully repair the body. The Mighty 90 is the best balanced solution I've found.

One sign of bimetal toxicity here at DP is downvotes as people cannot understand what the author is trying to say.

My cysts are caused by my fungal infection, which I have nearly beat with proper nutrition.

Granger, I will pray for your speedy recovery.

See you on the flip side.

My nephew has pterigiums from just playing a lot of soccer in the Arizona sun, and very young. I never heard of such a thing when I was a kid, but you are right, prevention when you don't think you need it is the only real way to prevent it.

Take care.

I would say when you are done

I would say when you are done you really should look into the raw fruits and vegetables with cooked starches diet. Also youtube doctor John Dougall. Diet is so important when your health is compromosed

Sounds like a very unpleasant condition you've been suffering. The surgical procedure will surely give you lots of relief. Take good care of yourself Granger, and see you back here soon!

Surfs up!
