The Cause Of Swollen Eyes After Surgery?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
While performed by competent medical personnel, namely ophthalmologists, hordeolum surgery is often not a dangerous operation. Postoperative swelling as you experience it is most likely caused by postoperative inflammation which is very natural. Usually, this inflammation not only causes swelling, but also pain, redness, and even difficulty opening and closing eyes. Frequently, this postoperative inflammation will improve in less than 1 week postoperatively.
Indeed, it is not impossible hordeolum reappears postoperatively. Why is that? Frequently, sufferers of hordeolum who need to be treated with surgery experience recurrent hordeolum due to impaired function of the oil glands in their eyelids. Therefore, even after surgery, the disease can recur, even though the recurrence potential is much smaller than if the hordeolum was not operated on.
We recommend that you undergo first post-operative care as the doctor suggests. Elevate swollen eyes during sleep (for example by using more pillows). Avoid excessive use of cosmetics around the surgical scar. Live a healthy diet, including avoiding food restrictions that your doctor tells you. Do not forget, always keep your wound clean well so it does not cause infection. It could also be a secondary infection in the surgical scar that causes the surgery to swell up again.
When controlling your ophthalmologist after surgery, do not hesitate to tell the doctor about the complaints you are experiencing so that you are given the best treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
