    Default 15 days since Ftse had his cherry eye op

    It has been 15 days now since Ftse had his Cherry eye op, everything was looking good and then he kept having a little bit of a bulge in the corner of his eye. we made the appointment to take him to the vets and within half an hour it had disappeared so I began to wonder was it there or is it me just imagining the worst a few days went by no bulge and today 15 days after, the bulge is there and this time it has not gone away. So Monday we will be back off again to the vets. I am so dissapointed the vet told me there is only 85% chance of all being well and just 15% of it coming back between 7 - 10 days after the op. Well when day 10 came I was so relieved that it had not popped back and now this.
    Has anyone else had this happen? if so does it goes away or is it the Cherry eye again because it is not as big as the bulge was before the op.

    Sorry this is happening, I have not had the issue with my bullies, but I do know it can come back and your only option might be to have the gland removed instead of tucked.

    Keep us posted and good luck

    Well Miila had her eye done and it looked perfect and about 1 or 2 weeks after I also saw a bulge in the corner. Nothing like the full cherry eye was. I figured the procedure wouldnt hold on her and knew there was a chance it might not. Went away and even the non cherry eye had a little bulge at one time so I thought Oh great, fix one and the other goes. That went away and never came back so I think it was maybe just swelling or something. There was one night I went to bed and Miila came and sat next to me looking so sad, the original cherry eye looked like it was back. Never saw anything after this ever and this was months ago. Now it sounds like Ftse's might be more frequent so it could be that it isnt taking. Hopefully not cuz I am sure the thought of another surgery makes you anxious like it would me.

    It can also be allergies...Both my dogs at times look like their eye has the cherry eye bulge again, and it goes away on it's own. Usually when they are out in the grass for a bit when the mold and pollen count is up. You will eventually get used to what's going on and a little thing like this won't bother you. I don't worry about anything with Bertie, until I am sure that something is wrong.

    Puck had to get the surgery again after 8 days. He had a large cherry eye to begin with, itwas very irritated and swollen. Itstarted to pop out again around 6-7 days after the surgery because his stitchesfailed.
    It has been two weeks after the second surgery now and thevet said that he needs to get thru a full month before he is completely in theclear. We have to keep him calm and trynot to let him run around and jump a bunch. They actually gave us a sedative to help keep him calm. Also – do not use a collar to connect theleash when you go outside, use a harness. The stress on the neck/ head area makes their eyes bulge out alittle.
    They only put in a few stitches for his first surgery. For the second surgery, they were more aggressivewith the stitching. Our vet didn'tcharge us anything for the second surgery, just his anesthesia and medicines,so we were lucky with that.
    I am really hoping his surgery holds. I am not sure what triggered it in the firstplace, but think it was pollen. We werein the middle of the worst spring time pollen here when he got it.
    I hope you do not have to get the surgery again, but it isbest to do it now if the sutures did not hold.

    When Stig had the surgery almost a couple of years ago it took a while for the swelling to go down. We went back to the vets after a couple of weeks with no change and that's when she said that it was ok to try to massage it back in. It worked and it still hasn't popped back out to this day.

    Take a pic so the vet can see it if it goes away again before you go in to see him.

    Now I am wondering is that what Otis had on Saturday - he had a white buldge in his left eye - it looked like he had gotten poked with something - I ran him upstairs crying to my husband that something was woring with Otis and my husband lifted up his eyelid and the buldge was gone. Now I'm worried.....

    No need to worry. Cherry eye is very common in bullies. It's not something that we wish for, but it's treatable. Have you googled it and compare if it's similar to what Otis had? Sometimes it goes away on its own, other times surgery is the only way to correct it.

    I did google it - from what I've seen they are all red but his was pure white and did go back in so now I'm praying it will stay in.

    Thank you for the response, appreciate it!
