My Little Cheetah (Aka Jeune)

50 posts in this topic

She is definitely better from her treatment yesterday, but she isn't a Cheerful Cheetah :cry: . She has been kicking her lips a bit, so I think she is experiencing little "almost being sick" incidences.

I've had confirmation of the time for today's procedure (take her in between 12 and 1), so the cold and wet is a good excuse to just snuggle until then.

Thank you for your concerns lovely DOLers. This is such a shock. Even the vet said yesterday, that they carried out a few checks just to ensure she was okay for a dental only to discover this :(:(:(

Hopefully we will get some indication today as to how to treat her symptoms.

ETA: OMG nearly made a big mistake :eek: Checked the calendar again and her time is between 11 and 12. The morning has disappeared.

Fingers crossed that it's something easily treatable... and that she's a happy camper soon...

Jeune coped really well with the examinations yesterday, and it is now a waiting game for the pathology reports. She was absolutely fine when we arrived home, ate a small meal and a few hours later, another.

The needle aspirate was difficult again as the lump is so hard :( . The specialist tried two different needles, but is doubtful as to the collection of anything that will give answers. The vet described it as instead of the needle just sinking into a soft lump and able to draw cells into it, the lump is so hard that the needle was actually parting the lump. The lump has not changed in shape or size.

The specialist also found another very small lump in the small bowel and some thickening in another part (I’ve forgotten the name) of the bowel.

I wondered to the vet whether Jeune’s several throw ups on Wednesday was simply an aberration and he wondered too. Fingers crossed that we can get some answers from the procedure.

Fingers crossed that all lumps and bumps are benign in nature.

Please give Jeune a few extra cuddles from me...

Oh honey I'm so sorry! I know what it's like to go in for one thing and discover another. Wolf's cancer was so aggressive we never really even got started on treatment. I hope you have positive options for Jeune. XXX

Hoping for good results on Monday DDD, the waiting is the worst isn't it. :grouphug:

YES :( :(

Weather lends itself to sleeping and reading the hours away and since the couch is Jeune's favourite place, I don't need much encouragement.

I am still hopeful that they'll discover the lump is benign although I did ask the vet if there was any chance of it being a fibroid as suggested by Tdierikx, and he said no.

The vet that wanted to cut half of my dog's face away was vehement that it was a malignant cancer too... then I took my dog to a vet you may know very well, and they correctly diagnosed the issue as a large fibroid... which eventually actually cleared up all by itself...

There is always hope... vets can be wrong...

That’s terrible, T. :( :( Yes, vets are people too with all the character flaws, egos and downright horribleness of the rest of the population and lack of expertise and knowledge.

The was a DOLer who was told that her dog needed URGENT luxating patella operations. I begged her to get another opinion and another opinion. Luckily she did (against the wishes of the rest of her family) and the result? Nothing wrong with her dog’s knees and no surgery needed.

I'm crossing everything that Jeune's vet could be wrong about her lump(s)... and it's no slight on the vet, as he's probably an awesome vet... but let's hope this time he is wrong in his initial diagnosis.

I'm sure he'll be fine with being wrong if all turns out better than initially thought... *grin*

Knowing my vets as I do, I know they will be 100% delighted if their diagnosis is wrong. :) However, two vets have seen her and two different specialists. That said, I am still hopeful that tomorrow is only good news.

Since the last procedure, she has been perfectly normal: eating, pooping, walking. So :crossfingers: :crossfingers: :crossfingers:

This is good DDD, keep on keeping on Jeune.
