Just had a full corneal transplant...

Had the surgery one month ago. Doctor says no contact sports or BJJ ever again as even the most minor contact with the eye can detach the donor cornea. Also no swimming in fresh water or pools. I'll also have to have this done again in about ten years time. 

Stitches will be in for the next 18 months.

Anyone else had experience with this? Anyone attempted to go back to BJJ after this kind of surgery?

Do you see any difference now?

I was virtually blind in my left eye, only saw light and was very sensitive to it. Now I can already make out some shapes and shadows, and I'm less light sensitive. 

I should regain vision over the next two years. I was blind in that eye since 18 and I'm now 26 (as of Friday).

This was my main motivation for the procedure.

I don't get to swim too often anyway, living in the UK, but I can still swim with goggles as long as I'm careful.
