    Defaultspot on scar : (

    My lab who had TPLO surgery has a recheck appointment this afternoon.
    I noticed this morning she has what looks like a small boil or spot on her stitiches scar. Don't know what it is. She is in week 11 of recovery from this.
    Has anyone ever had anything like this happen to a scar before??
    I will let you know but I am concerned as to what this might be.

    Back from the vet appointment.
    They think it is either a cyst or an irritation.
    Hopefully not one of her MC tumors.

    We are going to keep an eye on it for a week to see what happens to it.They have shaved the area around it.

    Keep your fingers crossed that it will pop and go away !!

    Fingers crossed that it's just irritated and will heal up.

    Spot is still there.
    Looks maybe like a cyst still.
    Still keeping an eye on it.
    Will keep you posted, thanks for your good thoughts.

    Yesterday I checked her spot and it looked like it was drying up a bit.

    Later on in the day she was lying in the sun and I checked it again in the brighter light. It appeared to have a dry spot on it that was sort of rough.
    When I touched it some more I could grab something with my nails. I started to hold it and it came it. It was a 1/2 piece of nylon "stitch" that had been left in I guess by accident.

    The mystery spot is now solved!! : )

    When I read your first post my first thought was a stitch! Sometimes they are the self absorbing type of sutures but some still can work their way out. Glad all is okay.

    Thanks for your support!

    We are all happy that it wasn't one of her Mast cell tumors again.
