Gas bubble takes between 1 to 3 months depending on the person. I'm in my 6th week, so the doctor and nurses say to be patient. Also, the bubble seems to be breaking up into smaller bubbles which I am advised is a sign of it diminishing. Since I am not in pain, I am rather enjoying the rest and making full use of the time to consolidate my financial and mental situation for FIRE and decided what I intend to do to fill my time when I take that step to retire. I take this episode as a blessing in disguise. Thks, all.

Hi, just an update. Gas bubble finally gone. Dr said I can resume activities except swimming (due to chlorine in water - wait another 2 weeks). However, eyesight not stabilised which will take months to stabilise. Currently slightly blur and refractions. This is adjustment stage. Glad that I'm still on medical next week so that I can get used to reading. The doctor purposely did not correct the myopia when he did the cataract (I also had cataract done in addition to vitrectomy as the latter worsens cataract conditions - so best done now then have it done in 6 months time) as long sightedness has not fully kicked in - so left with 200 to 300 degrees myopia. However, he advised try to leave eye to stabilise before I start wearing contact lens to make up for the difference. So, kind of wierd for the next few months - blurred images and all. I wished he had corrected it but then again, I may be only thinking of present.

So the sad part is - back to work in May :-(. In any case, am thankful to recover from this ordeal and thanks everyone for your kind support.
