Cullen's Pathology Report Is In

Guest MZH

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Cullen is doing well despite the not-so-good diagnosis. He's clearly feeling and moving so much better w/o that fist-sized tumor pressing into his organs.


We see the oncologist next Friday and get his sutures out then if all looks OK. (It looks good to us even today, 4 days after the surgery!)


We're not sure where they'd want to go with cancer treatments because the surgeon, Dr Jevens, says he took the whole thing out although with fairly narrow margins. I'm inclined to do immune-boosting things rather than chemo and/or radiation. The boy will be ten soon and I'd hate to mess up whatever good days he has left with endless unpleasant treatments. We'll see ....

Glad he's feeling good. Our girl will be starting chemo tomorrow for lymphoma, but she's only 5 and it's the only option we have. I'm glad your oncologist believes he removed all of the cancerous tissue. Please keep us updated on how he's doing and what you decide to do from here. :goodluck

I'm glad your boy is feeling better, though I'm sorry for the diagnosis. It's always hard to hear the "C" word.


Hopefully your vet will be able to present you with non-invasive options for treatment. We opted not to go for painful amputation and chemo when it had such a narrow likelihood of success in our case, but it might have been different if Argus had been a better candidate. You'll do what you think is best for your baby.
