We opted for the TECA surgery to hopefully improve the quality of Abby’s life. It was the best decision we could have made. The entire staff at BluePearl was so professional and caring. Abby received exceptional care, and the surgery was successful. BluePearl coordinated Abby’s after care with Dr. Johnson at Family Friends, and the transition was seamless.Facial nerve damage can be a complication of TECA surgery and Abby did lose her ability to blink and there was a slight droop to her face on the side of the procedure. I kept her eye lubricated with drops, and after about 5 weeks, I began to notice movement in her eyelid. She has completely recovered her ability to blink and her face is no longer drooping.
I am so grateful for the care Abby received. Thank you, BluePearl!
