I searched through the archives here at Healing Well & could not find any old threads on this surgery. I would have thought the surgeon would have addressed these issues with you. I suggest contacting the drs office & speak to his nurse abut these issues. If she cannot answer these questions she can ask the dr on your behalf & let you know.

Good luck with your surgery.

There are a lot of sites with information on the different types of anesthesia used for this surgery. Google "Pterygium surgery anesthesia." The type of anesthesia varies depending on the difficulty of the surgery and the condition of the patient.

There are also many people who have posted their recovery.

Ask your doctor!
