    Exclamation Post surgery HELP please!!!

    Hi all...i have been on and off due to the condition of winston. A couple weeks ago he got cherry. Te first week i was able to massage it back in. Last week it popped out and got real bad REaL fast! I was unable to massage back in and i felt horrible for him. SO after a few different vet visits to ensure a safe procedure we decided and did it. Surgery was a big success and his eyes look great! Now the bad! The first night was bad but i figured that would be expected...the second night was bad as well so i brought him back in. Vet said its normal and to keep an eye. Day 3, day 4 and now day 5 he's showing improvement BUT at night its still BAD. His nose sounds soooo stuffed and just dry heaves non stop. Sometime he spits up white mucus other times nothing and other times food sadly. The vet explained bullys going under and the tube in his nose/throat etc etc...his eyes are no longer the concern, its the worry i have of him dry heaving to the point of infection since the passage way is so short. I have another follow up appt in 2 days and the vet gave me his personal cell and doesn't seem too worried BUT i am. The sleepless nights dont bother me, its his condition which only occurs at night. Any help advice or guidance is highly appreciated! Thank you all @ EBN

    Aww. bless. Sounds like when they put the tube in his throat it has irritated him somewhat. Is there any way you can prop him up a little bit on pillows at night...so that he isnt laying flat.
    If it is just irritation it will pass as his throat heels a little. Is it getting any better at all? If you are worried you should take him in and ask the vet to look in his throat. maybe he can give you some meds that will ease the irritation xx

    I agree, I would take hm to an other bully vet. This should not be happening. I have had several bullies that went through surgery, C-sections, knee surgery, cherry eye surgery, and elongated pallet surgery, and none of them have ever done what you bully is doing. That vet must have either used a tube too big or scratched the throat or air way. Either way it needs to be checked out ASAP. Please keep us posted.

    See if it would be beneficial for him, if you ran a hot shower and got steam into a closed bathroom. If your house is dry or if he is in a crate near dry heat in the evening it could be bothering him, especially with a scratched throat. this is just a thought. Let me know if you try this and it helps.

    I agree , it doesn't sound like a normal thing to be happening after surgery, and a trip to the vet would be a good idea.

    I have had dogs that have had lots of surgeries and never had this happen. I would get a second opinion or at least, take him to the Vet. This is very unusual!!!
