I know it sounds strange....
I am having surgery on my right eye on monday. General anaesthetic and a procedure to correct a rather bad case of double vision. Muscles on my right eye will be weakened. The op is in the afternoon and I am being discharged, if all is Ok at about 5pm.
I have a gig at the jazz club the same evening at 8pm where I am supposed to be playing 2 solos.
I mentioned this to the nurse at the pre op and she was horrified... NO you can't possibly..... OK why? will my eye blow out? How long until I CAN play.
They werent prerpared to give any answers so I thought I would throw it in here and get some thoughts.
