Not sure if this is useful or not...

"I don't actually know exactly what state I'll be in afterwards. I've been told there's some pain (apparently not during, due to the medications, but afterwards, at least on the first day or so) and that I'll basically be at home resting all day afterwards (I assume they will give me more specific directions before the procedure.)"

The aftermaths of my own eye surgeries varied quite a bit: they sort of blur together, now, but with at least one I felt fine afterwards, whereas with another I couldn't open my eyes for some time after waking up post-surgery, and then spent a few days at home wandering about in a pained haze (which I feel slightly guilty about, because me being silent for several days running rather disturbed my family).

So here's hoping your surgery ends up being like the one where I was in good enough condition to pester quiz my Mom literally immediately upon waking up in terms of the recovery period. May the Force and God be with you, my sympathetic thoughts are with you and my fingers are metaphorically/intermittently physically crossed, go in the Light, et cetera.

And yeah, IIRC they'll give you specifics on arrival.

Belated thanks for sharing your experiences - fortunately I wasn't in too bad shape after the procedure. Whew!

I was glad to hear from Cleolinda that you were basically fine afterwards--even with the unfortunate economics-related surprise. Whew indeed.
