Yesterday (July 11, 2014) I was urgently admitted to the Ophthalmic clinic of the AMC.
1) What was going on: I missed part of the field of vision of the left eye. There was a curtain at the top of the field of vision of the left eye. The presumption was that possibly part of the cornea had become unleashed.
2) The diagnosis: After much research it became apparent that the capillaries were severely narrowed in the left eye. The most obvious reason is the inflammation of the capillaries caused by vasculitis (this has to do with my Microscopic Polyangiitis).
3) the inflammation is treated with prednisone.
4) What does this mean: the procedures that were initiated for a kidney transplant are pushed to the back burner (for several years).
I am back at home because I didn’t need to be hospitalized
