Dr's will not be truthful on how long chemosis could last or they won't get business. 15 months out after u/l bleph still have it. First told a few weeks, then a few months, then up to a yr now its bumped up to 2 yrs..whats next? Oh, then theres that "I've never had a patient with this situation before" BS!! Spending lots of $ for drops that don't work. All Drs stick together and say the same thing.
