Hi there, I've had a few requests from people to see photos of my journey with my eye disease due to Graves. These are just a handful of the pics my surgeon gave me on a disk. They are not in order as you see them but I've put the dates of when each photo was taken to make it easier to follow. I hope I can be an inspiration to those of you going through this. Take the plunge, it's worth it. Check out what I look like today and you will see it's possible to come out of this looking "normal". It took over 2 years from start to finish. I probably won't have any more surgeries now even though one eye is still a little puffy just on the top. It's only noticeable to those who have been through the journey with me and they all think I'm being picky, smile. I have an appointment with my surgeon at the end of this year so I will ask if he can perhaps just tweak that eye a bit. I have to say if he can't I'm extremely happy with the results as they are. I would love your feedback.
