Guest VTGrey Posted April 15, 2016 Share Posted April 15, 2016 Hi all. One month ago our sweet grey, Murphy, was diagnosed with multi lobular osteosarcoma (MLO). Fortunately the cancer was localized to his mandible. After many consultations with the surgeon we decided to proceed with the partial jaw amputation. Murphy's recovery has been difficult. He has managed to learn how to eat soft foods and is finally gaining some weight. The larger issue is he does not sleep well, especially at night. He is constantly roaming around,shaking and just standing in odd places (ie. Our bathroom). After speaking with his surgeon we have taken him off all medications. We were hoping it was the Trazadone making him anxious but it has been over a week and no change. He does not appear to be in pain but very anxious/unsettled. Has anyone dealt with similar signs/symptoms post amputation? My husband and I are at a loss. Murphy is 10 and we very much want him to enjoy what's left of his golden years.
