My mom had a severe heart attack two years ago. She went in to the cath lab for a routine procedure and ended up in surgery for a total of thirteen hours. They went in to put in a stint and her heart started peeling everytime they touched it. She ended up having a quadruple bypass, stroke and lost her sight. The visual cortex is intact. The beginning of the optic nerve is damaged. She was 45 when this happened. She now is completely blind, has end stage congestive heart failure, beginnning stages of renal failure and no one has any answers.. I am frustrated. We have heard alot about hypertension causing blindness and stem cell research. We are interested in finding out if anyone has any new trains of thought or directions to go to try and get her some sight back... :confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
