I am a juvenile diabetic that I was diagnosed with when I was 2 years old. On October 17, 2012 I received a cortisone injection for trigger finger and the doctor said it could elevate my blood sugars for approximately 2 weeks and it has not been back to normal since then and it’s been almost a year. On XXXXXXX 5, 2012 I had my trigger finger surgery to correct the problem. Then the beginning of August I went to the eye doctor because my prescription ran out for my contacts and my eye doctor was booked so I went to another one and she found blood in the back of my eyes so she referred me to a retinal surgeon and he diagnosed me with severe Diabetic Retinopathy. I didn’t have this over a year ago and I got this problem from the cortisone injection which the ortho doctor said I would have elevated sugars for about 2 weeks and almost 1 year later I am losing my vision over this. I am hoping you can help me out in this matter.
