Hello....I'm very new to forums so please forgive me if it goes bottoms up!!!!
When I registered a little while ago I was asked Every new member.....What is the status of my KERATACONUS? ......I had to select "Other" What I really wanted to select was .....Cornea transplants now registered blind....... My KERATACONUS came back with a vengeance and there is nothing else anyone can do for me...... I have had this dreadful disease for 30 years now and it's ruined my life, my career and my ability to do the things I love ....... Sorry .... I've given up with my consultant after a bad incident with him ....I will tell All soon

Look forward to hearing the stories and hopefully helping others

Really sorry to hear this. Are regrafts not possible for you? It is very rare for KC to come back after a graft but it can happen. My recent regraft had to be bigger than the original as there was thinning at the bottom edge of the old graft.

it is not as rare as many think, I had a transplant in my then worse eye n got registered as blind not long after and as a result of disasterous experiences I flat out refused a transplant for my left eye which now has no useful vision at all n the then transplanted eye is as good as useless as well, you ar not alone, n I really wish more people would be honest that blindness altho a scary prospect at point of diagnoses is the reality for many of us feel free to inbox me x
