    Default Update - Scrolled Cartilage surgery on Bocephus

    Thank you all for your support through this LOOOONNNNGGGG process.

    Bocephus had his post op appointment this morning for his scrolled cartilage surgery. The right eye looks fantastic and will have no further issues. The left eye did not "take". He will need to go back in for another surgery. My poor baby. I'm going to wait a month just to give him a damn break from surgery (he's had two in 6 weeks).

    The next surgery will be a reduction of the third eyelid. They will go in and tack it down (the first attempt was the pocket technique). This will probably cause residual effects down the road and he will need eye drops.

    I just feel so bad for him that he will need to go under again, my poor boy.

    Awe, I'm so sorry he has to go back in. Poor Bo, happy the other eye is all better. Hugs to both of you.

    Thank you all so much. I want to post a lot about the procedure so if someone goes through this in the future they know a little what to expect.

    I am so disappointed the surgery for his left eye didn't take. I was just reading another post about a poor bully that is being mistreated and their medical issues are not being addressed so I am thrilled that God brought Bocephus to me. I will do everything I can to get him through these eye issues so he can be a happy healthy bulldog.

    Thank you sooooo much. I'm going to give him a month off from vet visits and surgery. He is terrified to even go near the car right now. I don't blame the poor guy. Late in May or early June, I'll get him back in there and hopefully he will be all good afterwards.
