It has been a while since I've been here. Katie(M2) and I are still doing okay. Hard to believe 3 yrs have gone by already. She is still a mutilator. We're still learning, I think we will always be learning, but we are interacting much better. I was wondering if any one has done it in the past or thinks it would help to remove the large lump of scar tissue on her chest. It is probably the size of a quarter and sticks out a good half and inch. If I keep a cloth cover-up on her with her collar she doesn't mess with it as much, but it is more difficult to give her frequent baths. If it was on me it would probably drive me crazy. She can still irritate it even with the collar on by jabbing at it. It is just one of those clear elizabethan collars.
I had left a message for the vet quite some time ago without getting a reply, although I would really like to find a different vet. But I have been curious. I would think you would still get some scar tissue back with surgery, but maybe it wouldn't bother her as much, or maybe that giant lump is painful, I don't know. It's been on my mind a lot lately and just wondering what I should do if anything. How risky would that type of surgery be, and how difficult of a recovery?
