Update from surgery

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Yesterday, we went in to meet with the surgeon about the lymph node removal and mouth biopsies. I asked them to take chest x-rays first, since it would have been around now that her mid-point x-rays would have been if there had been no chemo delays (of which there were two). I asked them to do them first, because if they found anything in the x-rays, it would influence my decision about putting her through the surgery.

GOOD NEWS: lung x-rays came back clear. Big, big happy dance.

So, I decided to go through with the minor surgery to remove her lymph nodes and get samples from her mouth infection and send them off to get examined. At least this way, we will know for sure if it’s cancerous or not (the surgeon didn’t believe it would be cancerous – apparently he has seen something similar before, and it went away with time), and have a better idea of what it is and how to treat it.

We will get results back in about a week.

In the meantime, Roxy slept through the night, and is resting at home. She ate well this morning; you wouldn’t think that she had just gotten 3 chunks taken from her mouth. That’s my girl, not letting anything get in the way of food. 🙂

Here is a photo of the incisions, for those of you who are interested:
