    Sadly for me I have to pull out of next weeks bash.
    Last weekend a good sized blur appeared in my vision, after a few days of screwing around between optician and hospital it has been confirmed as a large floater that is putting strain on my retina.
    Apparently itís a semi common complication of cataract surgery and not that big of a deal unless you only have one eye like me.


    If the floater puts too much strain on the retina it might tear and become detached (leaving me blind and needing surgery to repair it)
    I have been told it will take several weeks for the floater to shrink enough to where it is not a problem and I have been warned against stressing the eye in the mean time.
    So a 4.5 - 5 hour is out of the question for me.


    Neil I committed to the chippy and will still send my share of the cost to you once you post it in the thread.


    My apologies folks I was so looking forward to meeting you all, I had everything prepared and packed ready for the journey but I will be at the next bash (unless I get blinded by a detached retina )

    Really sorry to hear this. I was so looking forward to finally meeting you. But, as Pauly says, do as the docs say and let's hope you're better very soon. Not wanting to "get in on the act", but I've been a little concerned over the very same thing. I've had floaters for years but they are now worse and bigger than ever before following the cataract surgery and subsequent laser treatment to clear the cloudy implants. Big, translucent, like jelly-fish blobs. But my doctors have said they should just settle and, hopefully, nothing to worry over......

    I hope yours clear for you soon and look forward to being able to meet at a future Bash.

    And it can't arrive quickly enough.....it's been such a long time since our last little gathering but we're now almost there. Really looking forward to unwinding at our Bash in the idyllic and therapeutic setting amongst fantastic people. And the sights and sounds of lots and lots of boingers boinging (or not!) merrily away whilst being appreciated by their admiring owners is always a joy to behold.

    Can't wait, peeps......Chill time at The Bash is almost upon us.

    BOING!
