Update -

I was hoping today was going to be my last check up but they found a slight tear on my left eye today which I already knew was weak from the diagnosis in March.

Straight in for laser treatment on it though which is fantastic healthcare indeed.

20mins of excruciating laser treatment and one weepy eye later, fingers crossed, the preventative laser treatment has worked. Need another check up in 2-3 wks to clarify this.

They also noted a tiny cataract on the right eye that had the detached retina, nothing to worry about as it was tiny but it will develop over the many months/1 or 2 yrs into a cataract.

The joys of bl00dy old age hey???

Had tears in both retinas lasered and twice in one eye, got to be honest but at no point did I find it excruciating, unpleasant yes but no more than that, must have had the wick turned up too much lol.
Last session was 9 months ago at Manchester eye hospital, fantastic surgeons and aftercare.

It was the pulling open of my eye and the pressure exerted onto my eye ball while trying to keep the eyelids open that was painful.

Add into that the laser hitting the eye where the numbing drops hadn't taken and it was horrendous.

All good now that it's settled down as I had to go to sleep earlier as it was hurting bad and pulsating.

She did warn me that it was rather unpleasant.

Not great news nbray67, but better to get it sorted asap which they have done - the NHS does seem to react very quickly with these types of issues.
