For those of you that have been hospitalized....when you leave the hospital do you have problems with your vision or notice blurry vision for days or even a couple weeks after discharge?
if so...what is that from?

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

Diagnosed with severe Crohn's colitis in May 2005--spread to ileum and small intestine as of April 2008. Have taken Imuran, Remicade, TPN, Colozal, Entocort, Flagyl, PamineForte, Cipro, Dicyclomine, Prednisone, Asacol, Prevacid, and the list goes on.

after being in hospital it takes a bit to get yur legs back. Yurnot suggesting the hospital per se is causing blurry vision, rather i can think of many meds that may have side effects re vision, but i also think crohns contributes directly to vision problems due to pH, acidity...and things i dont understand. remicade seemed to have a dialating effect. but the worst is the mucuosy feeling rather than the crusting of the waste of how the eye shuld normally? eliminate it during sleep. mucous same as in the bowel seems to be affecting eyes>>no relationship to hospital stay.

I've only noticed this relative to being sedated or hit with powerful pain killers while in the hospital and released the same day as the sedation/pain killer. I've never noticed a lingering affect.

Have you spoken with your doctor about this to see if this could be related to what you underwent in the hospital or medications?
