    1. Is my writing correct?

    2. How should I describe my attitude towards studies?

    3. Shall I say operation or surgery?

    4. What are the differences between operation and surgery?

    __________________________________________________ _____________

    (Excuse me, I get to rest now, I feel sore on my eyes. Is this writing correct?)

    The first sentense is more or less OK, as to the second sentence, it's not clear at all what you mean. Could you explain it in simpler words?

    I think you mean:

    Although I had a minor operation yesterday and need to rest my eyes, I still need to learn more English. So I can't leave my computer.

    The above sentence makes it clear that you are keen to continue your studies even though you don't feel well.

    Surgery is just one kind of operation. You can use either one.

    " I must rest now. My eyes feel sore. "
