NZC - I too trust the cataract op went well. Were you awake through it? Did they explain what they were doing? I expect you'll find an amazing difference, I did. I had both eyes done and found I could see better than I could at 18, which is when I started wearing glasses. Then after some years I progressed to contact lenses; they were good but fiddly and needed constant attention. Now I still need glasses for reading and close work but for everything else it's better than 20-20, so you have much to look forward to. I pray that your experience will be as good as mine has been.
