PostSubject: I found another lump~spindle cell sarcoma~ again   Fri Oct 17, 2014 2:14 pm

So yesterday sucked ass, but this goes back to last week, when i was up all night with Sierra Wed. night when she was not feeling well. I guess the raw chicken did not agree with her, and she had an ear infection and at 3:30am we were sitting on the deck and i felt a small lump while i was petting her. We went to the vet Thur. cause i all ready had it set up for the ear so it was a triple check visit, ear, stomach, lump. we got ear meds, found a "bug" in her poo leading to the chicken and she tested the lump and told me fat. This was the "other" vet at the office that i am now convinced i don't like and will ask for our "real" vet from now on.
Fast forward to this Wed. and i realized said lump got larger IN A WEEK!  so back to the vet i like yesterday, where she stuck it with a needle and pulled out yellow stuff. i was thinking good things as last time she could not pull much out. she came back after what seemed like forever and well it was fat but it also had the same spindle cells in it like the other lump had Sad cancer.
So since its in a easier place to remove and not over bone we are just going to remove it this coming Thur.  then send it off to test. unlike last time we sent it off first to see what we were dealing with to make sure they removed it correctly.
I was a wreck yesterday. Our vet rocks and will do a payment plan with me to pay for the surgery and its about half the cost of the other one. im hoping it ends up on the lesser end depending on how long they need to keep her under and all that stuff, she thinks she can have it off in 20min, there is a lot of loose skin there and she can feel to the back side of the lump.
So if you all can keep Sierra in your thoughts it would be great, we did not even make it a year from the last surgery, im trying to stay positive that this is the LAST ONE.

here is a picture of the location


so it is very close to the other one, if i stretched my thumb to middle finger, point to point its about that far Sad  the soft tissue Sarcoma we removed from that spot had very good margins and are not know to spread so not sure why this other one showed up. we will know in about 2 weeks what they test it as.

so please think happy thoughts for my baby girl.
thanks

Sierra is happy to be home, she is crying and will not settle down. They shaved her as little as they had to Smile
Hoping for a speedy recovery

Well that saying you cant keep a husky still, yeah we are at that stage, poor Sierra wants to be active and i have to say no Sad
i also am not sure if im over reacting but i think her stitch area looks redder today, not sure if its an infection starting or not...
this is from the other day


they did a good job not taking to much fur off but they did take a lot of skin, it looks like she got a tummy tuck and has a waist line now.

The wound looks great. There will be some inflammation as part of the healing process. What you want to look out for is an "angry" red with lots of excess heat.

Glad to see she's perking up - any word on the biopsy yet?
