Pollýanna´s health problem

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, I thought I´d write the newest details on Pollýanna´s healt problem here.

After they spayed her, the vet were hoping the cysts on her front would go, as the natural hormonal flow would diminish.
In the other hand they have been growing at an unbelieble speed, so by the time the stitches from her spaying were remowed they wanted her in soon to try to take some fluids from the cysts (they felt they had to have some fliuds inside, since they were soft and bouncy, but still obviously had a lot of pressure, like they were bursting.
So, yesterday took her in, and to my surprice, she had that plastic think on her head, yet again. It turned out they tried to take some fliuds out, but apparently, there was allmost no fluid there. So they cut the cysts in 3 places, and took tissue samples to send off to be analysed.
Now that her fur has been shave off, I can see how humongous this is, the largest one, that wasnt just beginning to form 3 weeks ago, is now the size of a small to medium apple. The vet told my to hang on to hope that this might not be cancer, since cancer tumours were darker and harder than this is. This looked like an light coloured tissue, that was for some reason over multiplying and growing out of proportion.

If this is cancer, there is nothing they can do. It´s to big to remove, and beeing so very big and all over, it wouldnt do any good removing it either.
If this is an innocent overgrown tissure, they would have to operate at least 3 times, in order to get rid of this, since this is to big to put her through to take in one piece, and also, taking the whole thing off at one time, wouldnt leave enough skin to stitch her skin together, so it would have to be done in smaller steps.

I still hope and prey for my little girl to pull through this and get better, I so really need her to!

I wrote this in the Daily Thread yesterday, but thought this would rather be the place for it, so I´m copying it to here.

I saw that there had been bleeding form Pollýannas stitches and from the next cysts on the side of that one that was cut.
I was gonna call the vet emergeny since the clinic is only open untill noon on Saturdays, but since my mobile is beeing repaired I didnt have the emergency number, and trying to phone the clinic to get the number from their answering machine just didnt work - I always got connected to some shop´s machine telling they were closed on weekends - like I cared! The phone lines must have been mixing or something.

When I finally found out the emergency number there was blood all over the place. Her e-collar was red, I had put a towel under her, since she was laying on my bed and some had gotten to the sheets and now the towel was all with red dots...

When I had cleaned this I saw that the stitch is half open and the "cysts" is growing out from the cut.

The vet (onother one that had treated her, but knew Pollýanna´s story) said that this was probably growing out of the skin, the pressure was just too much, and her opinion was that this was cancer
She told me to cut a sleeve off and old jumper, cut holes for legs and put a (mmm....what is it called....) lady napkin, you know for the period...
I decited to send my s/o to the pharmacy and buy sterile thing to put on sores and then something to wrap her with, and then a soft "cylinder" ontop of that, which I cut holes for legs on, so now she lookes like she has an overall on.

Anyway, I am just such a mess now, I am not ready for Pollýanna to leave me, she has been with through so much...

This is the other post form the DT yesterday.

I just thought I´d add to this, that there does not seem to be much bleeding, but some. I peeked under the bandage before to check, and there was not much blood, but the thing growing out from her wound was even bigger, so that is growing very fast.
I will call the vet again tomorrow. They are very nice there. I they feel it would be necesary, they would arrange to meet me at the clinic, even it is Sunday, or at least give my good advice and meet me monday morning.


I haven´t phoned the vet yet, but I checked the wound, and it had grown even bigger. I have this huge lumpt in my tummy and I´m just constantly on the verge of crying.....
