Age at Diagnosis
Lots and lots of injections.
Left eye caught early, right eye not so good, no central vision. But still able carry out "normal" day to day activities.
No trace of MD in family, still have grandparents alive.
Impact On Your Life
5 injections into most recent course of 8, I found out I'm pregnant. Not a good combination, Lucentis and growing bub. Now trying to find anybody who's been or is pregnant while having treatment, and any research out there.
Trying hard to stay positive, but hard when I could be the first to mix pregnancy and Lucentis. On a positive note, we can now say Lucentis does not effect fertility.
Being strong, focus on what Ido have and be thankful for that.
Look after my first child, which I stopped treatment for to conceive, carry and breast feed. (Had steroid injection instead.)
More About Me
I just want to find anyone who can help me and talk to me. There must be someone who's been pregnant on treatment.
