Thanks for sending your query to us.
with macular degeneration and Toxoplasmosis you are having very good workable vision,and it is very good that you are able to help others.
Since driving requires more of peripheral vision also,which is un affected by central visual loss of macular degeneration you are able to drive with some difficulty,which hopefully you will continue to do.
Since your macular degeneration is stable there is not much that you can do for tt
You can have anti oxidants and have regular check ups to take care of any further developments if they occur.
Please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.

We are married in June 2009 and have been trying for kids. We underwent(especially my wife) lot of medical tests

regarding concieving. I am giving some important medical test results below. I request for clarification on below

several doubts I have:

1) Does my wife has TB based on below reports? Some doctors say she has TB while some say she does not have.

2) In case she has TB based on below report findings, is that the reason for the right fallopian tube blockage?

Will it also cause problems for fertilization when egg is released in normal tube.

3) Also I would like to know if one tube is blocked, then does the egg always get released on the open tube? Or is

it irregular in which tube egg gets released or is that alternative in each period cycle?

4) After marriage can RUBELLA virus vaccination be taken?
