Freya's tale

Our journey starts with a single step on three legs

Day 7 AA

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Well, there is not a lot to report today. Her last dose of antibiotics was this morning and fingers crossed we won’t need any more. And she hasn’t had pain medication for a few days now and seems to be doing very well in that regard.

I had another ‘normal’ moment when I went to get some things from the car and when I came back she was miaowing ┬ájust inside the door which is how she usually greets me when I get home. She also managed to negotiate her way via steps and a chair to a viewing spot at another window (less preferred than the window above her cat chair). I might have to give some thought on how to arrange things so she can get around to these favourite spots more readily.

I did notice on the couch tonight that there seems to be some pockets of skin I hadn’t noticed before midway along the incision site – maybe a bit swollen? And just then I noticed a very small damp spot that might be some leakage/fluid from that part of the incision. I’ll adopt a wait and observe approach for the next little while.

But apart from that she seems very good in herself. And I am beginning to lose that tight feeling in my chest when I think of what has happened over the last week. And it has been a full week since the operation – amazing how the days pass and how the dread and the fear that were my constant companion leading into the operation has been replaced by amazement and thanks.

Freya, that sounds like a seroma to me. Search our Forums and News Blog, you’ll find lots of info about it. Pretty harmless but you may want to contact your vet to let them know about it. Usually the fluid will reabsorb into the body but sometimes it needs to be drained. As long as the fluid isn’t stinky, green or yellow, and more clear than bloody, it should be OK. Let us know.
