Chalazion disappear completely after 4 months of its surgery. What i should do ?

Hi Everyone,I have had an incision and curretage since there was a chalazion in the upper lid of my right eye.Its over four months now and the chalazion has decreased a bit but it is in the same place . When I met an opthmologist at the hospital,he examined my eye and said that the surgeon has well performed the operation and he also told me that it depends upon the patient for the chalazion to disappear and also it can come up after a month.Can anyone suggest how much time will the chalazion take to dissapear completely after its surgery as in my case its over 4 months now and also the chalazion is still there??And when does a chalazion reappear after its first surgery!!

chalazion is the cyst like swelling due to meibomian gland .incision and curretage is its standard treatment.recurrance of chalazion can be there even as early as 2 months
or even 1 month also.important cause of recurrant chalazion is uncorrected refractive disorders . so please get ur eyes checked for vision and refractive disorders.

Sometime small scar or residual can be there but if it is not so obvious then need not to worry after sometime it can subside.Sometime there can be recurrence which need repeat incision and curretage .So just be calm and have patience ,consult your ophthalmologist regularly.
take care
