    My father is having a problem with wet macular degeneration and is
    considering traveling to Duke University to be evaluated for macular
    translocation surgery. However, my father has a transplanted kidney
    and there are certain drugs that he is not allowed to ingest because
    of this. Does anybody have any knowledge out there of what drugs and
    chemicals are used during the macular translocation surgeries? If we
    get a list he can go to his nephrologist and ask whether those
    chemicals/drugs could harm his transplanted kidney. Chances are they
    won't because he is able to undergo things like angiograms and
    Visudyne treatment but we want to of course be absolutely sure.

    Thanks very much!

    Have you researched any of William Bates MD methods? I just feel it
    is best to see what options are available.

    I think everyone has the opportunity to see what is available and then
    allow them to make their own choice by doing the proper research.

    It is okay if you wish to protect your industry, but since he is
    coming for help, I feel it is in his best interest to seek out all
    sources of help and decide on which is the best.
