Well- apparantly it is not common but every now and then a dog will swell massively after surgery. Poor Kimba needs some well wishes. His "area" has swollen to the size of a baseball. We were back into vet this morning after NO sleep last night (He did not respond well to the buprenorphine) and got an anti-inflammatory shot to reduce swelling which did not do a thing. Vet says it now may just take days for it to reduce in size. Luckily it is just uncomfortable and not painful. Imagine a baseball stuck between your butt cheecks- he finds it hard to get comfortable, so pls then send a positive thought his way. :-\
First- thank you for all the good thoughts..I have been telling Kimba his JL pals are pulling for him.
Good news is, he is no pain, the swelling has not gotten worse and he is acting like his usual crazy self again, except for that odd look on his face when he goes to sit. :-\
Gosh everyone, thank you so much for the good thoughts!!! I keep telling Kimba all about everyone's well wishes. You would think there was nothing wrong with him based on how he is acting (like his rowdy old self again). Wanted to let you all know that the swelling has gone down a bit since this morning, so I am starting to feel better and hopefully in a couple days it will have gone significantly down. Kimba wants you all to know that he is feeling super and he loves all his JL pals that send him well wishes!!!
