    56 year old female post op bladder prolapse reconstruction took high dose ibuprofen for pain control instead of opioids. One week post op developed posterior vitreous hemorrhage with bleeding in left eye but no retinal tear.

    Extremely high pollen count/histamines in AR. Researched histamine (H1) increases retinal permeability? NSAIDS?

    Any protocol for eye health. Lutein and zeaxanthin are in her methylated multi. She is heterozygous C677t.

      600mg Ibuprofen QID to avoid Opiods

      Had eye hemorrhage and bleeding in the posterior eye compartment. Blamed on “age” and is considered “normal” for someone her age.

      What is the root cause of the bleed?

      Histamine increasing permeability globally through the body.

      Lack of ascorbic acid / Vitamin C over a long period of time promotes collagen degeneration.

      Cortisol over long periods of time degenerates connective tissue, liberating amino acids from storage all over the body leads to degeneration.

      Surgery stress – inflammation control, then building new tissue from scratch further depletes the pools of raw materials, esp. water soluble antioxidants like Vitamin C.

      As Vitamin C drops, collagen production decreases all over the body – weak skin, ligament, gut lining, etc.

      PROTOCOL

      500C Methoxyflavone – 1 TID

      Collagen Renew – 3 scoops TID for a month, then reduce dose

      Chondro-Relief – 4 QD per day

      Bone Broth – 1-2 servings per day

      B-Complex as needed

      Rebound, vibration plate, movement – collagen will be laid down and be stronger with movement;

      Swimming / resistance training ideally isometrics due to changes in ligament, tendon length/strength
