That's a good website... As to the question about the possibility of a small incision, I don't think it's possible. Cecilys was at least 8" long, probably 30 staples. These masses are larger than a softball, more like a cantaloupe.


Oh Chancy... I'm hoping the fluid and drugs work and that the Vet can get that nasty spleen out of there. :grouphug

question about spleenectomy----can the vet remove it thru a "keyhole incision" similar to how the surgeon removed by sister's gallbladder???


my eyes dried up enough to where I could type again.....

xoxox to Chancey when you get her home later.......


Yes, they do. My vet here just got a laparoscope. I can honestly say that even in human medicine I've never heard of a lap splenectomy... being a blood producing organ I'm guessing it might be too bloody but I don't know that. I've got a friend that's an OR nurse, I'll try to see what I can find out.

We're home. Just seeing Chancy walk to me from the vet's back room was enough to bring (more) tears to my eyes. She's very tired, not that this is a change really. But she walked, peed in the yard, drank some water, ate two jars of baby food and 2.5 ounces sliced turkey. All of this I never expected to see happen again. I'm giving her a little break to settle the food before offering more. We're starting some meds that will require tricky timing with food. I'm going to have to make a meds chart just to keep everything straight.


She's home for now. I'm still sick with worry and fear, and it's going to be another long night, but we're just taking it one hour at a time.

~Aimee, with Flower, Alan, Queenie, & Spodee Odee! And forever in my heart: Tipper, Sissy, Chancy, Marla, Dazzle, Alimony, and Boo. This list is too damned long.
