Pterygium grew back after surgery

Dear Homeopathy Doctors,

my mother has Pterygium on both eyes since more than 30 years. She got it after she had a sunburn on her yes from snow reflection during skiing.
These pterygiums were growing very slowly, and about 10 years ago on left eye it nearly reached the pupil and was removed with a surgery. Since that time it was not growing. The pterygium on right eye reached the pupil about 1 year ago and was also removed with surgery. After surgery it grew back and was removed again. But even after second surgery it is growing back again :(
My mom doesn't want to have another surgery, especially since it doesn't help. Is there hope for us to treat it with homeopathy? At least to stop its growth..

Thank you for your time and attention,

Thanks for your fast reply,

Her vision is not affected with pterygium yet as it has not reached pupil so far. Before the surgery this pterygium was of white half-transparent color, but when it grew back it has pink color and has small blood vessels in it.
She doesn't feel any discomfort from it, and also no secret is coming out of it.

My mom is 58 years old and she can read only with glasses, but I think it is caused with age and not pterygium.
Aside of eye problems she has slightly increased blood pressure, but she doesn't take any medications at all, she does physical exercises every day 40 mins, doesn't eat any unhealthy food and doesn't drink any alcohol.

She has a sporty body and her weight is 62 kg, her height is 164 cm. From character she is very impatient, sometimes arrogant and hectic, often not punctual. She says what she thinks and is very shy if she is in unknown situation or society. She is also not very tidy and hypochondriac.
I have already bought zincum metallicum 30C, but am not sure if this remedy will also help her.

thank you a lot for your suggestions!

Dear doctors,

following some prescriptions for pterygium on this forum, my mom was taking Zincum Metallicum 30C for 2 weeks. Now 3 weeks are gone after that and no changes are observed.
What can you recommend to do next?
Thank you all for the spent time!

Dear Homeopathy Doctors,

After first course of Zincum Metallicum, in a month, my mom thinks that her Pterygium became more transparent. So we thought that this remedy worked good and repeated the same scheme again after break of 2 months. This time we didn't observe any improvement (more than 2 months are gone since then).
Can you recommend some other remedy which could help in her situation?
I got Argentum Nitricum D12 for her, but am not sure if it's a good choice.

Thank everybody in advance

Dear Doctors,

taking Argentum Nitricum D12 didn't cause any changes.

What do you recommend to take in the next step? Shall she try higher potency of Zincum Metallicum? If yes, which one and for how long?

thank you,
