3+ Years Later It's Round 2

In April 2005, Bo had a lump removed from his front leg that ended up being Fibrosarcoma. The vet got clean margins, but warned that it would likely return in 3-5 years. Well, a couple of weeks ago I had another lump removed from more or less the same spot. My vet was spot on, it came back as Fibrosarcoma with clean margins again. Bo's doing well and I expect that to continue. I joked with the vet that I'd see him in 3-5 years.


I'll be vigilant, as always, but I'm not really worried. Bo will be 9 in November and if he keeps going the way he has been, he'll die a happy old needle nose.


I don't think I'd call this a happy story, but it's definitely not sad. When it comes to cancer, not sad in my book, is pretty good.


Cheers! :cheers

Silly Bo putting you through your paces, Brian! :rolleyes: But clean margins are always great news and it sounds like Bo is in good hands with a terrific vet.


Kelsey had a mast cell tumor removed with clean margins approximately 5 yrs. ago so we're always looking out for that recurrence, too. So far, so good and she's turning 14 next month. I have no doubt that Bo will be standing on a picnic table, most likely with a lampshade on his head, for HIS 14th birthday photo. :lol
