Avastin – april 2009

In April 2009 Dr Zaal and we decided to proceed with subconjunctival injections of Avastin. As Max suffered from a big erosion in his left eye, dr Zaal only injected the right one. After almost 2 weeks an erosion came up in this eye and Max suffered from pain and irritation as well as almost zero vision. The right erosion was healed quite quickly, within 3 days but with the wrong tissue (being scar tissue instead of transparent cornea cells). We decided not to proceed with injections as apparently the doses would be uncontrollably strong.

During the month of May, Max has increased his mobility using the cane. He is quickly learning braille.
