Hepatitis C and Cataract Surgery

hopefulinflorida posted:
My husband was recently diagnosed with hepatitis C and now needs to have a cataract removed from his left eye. He recently had abdominal surgery and had an abscess removed from his stomach. (this was when we found out about the hep C). She has said that the blood work on his liver is up and down on a daily basis. (Not sure exactly what this all means as a matter of the moment). However, he has shown nothing but improvement. His current doctor (At the VA) has said that no one will touch his eye due to his medical condition.


Has anyone experienced this situation? Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

I have hepC and cirrohosis. I am also on a transplant list. I have developed awful cataracts quickly. My left eye was done in the last month. Right eye is worse and I am doing steroid drops in it first. If eye surgeon is worried, my hematologist said he would attend surgery.
