Anyone else waking up in post-op looking like the devil himself? I am 12/12 in this arena, am EDS hypermobile with POTS. I’m not usually a terrible bruiser either, compared to what I read here. I figure this happens because the eye tissues are fragile and contain a lot of collagen, but I don’t see where others are experiencing this as I do. I’ve also noticed that the longer I’m knocked out, the worse the bleed is in appearance. Surgeons have never been able to explain why it’s happening other than random guesses – but 12 times in 12 different surgeries? The heck?
