    I am always welcome to any suggestions that you guys might have for making his recovery as easy as possible. Thank you all for your positive thoughts, prayers, and support!

    He is doing really well! After a bit of a restless night, he is definitely getting back to his old self. He never lost his appetite or got sick. He bled a little yesterday but so far this morning he hasn't at all (knock on wood), which is the first time in five days. He wanted to play this morning and got pouty when we wouldn't. Now he is sitting outside sunbathing. We are so happy that he is recovering so well!

    I havent been on all week bit so glad to hear Frank is doing well after his surgery!
    Erin, how old is Frank? Chum has some more important issues to deal with first but the vet said he has an enlarged prostate. He's 5 yrs old and not neutered. I never wanted to risk putting him under but if it's affecting his health now it may be time, I'm just wondering if it's ok to do at 5

    I'm butting in, even though I know you didn't ask me, lol

    We had to have Tyson neutered at 8 yrs old due to the same thing as Frank. Enlarged prostate which caused him to start bleeding. Then he had to put under again at one month shy of 9 yrs old bc he ate socks. If your vet is bully experienced it should be fine. I think Frank is 6 (I think).

    Our experiences were night & day from a non experienced bully vet vs experienced. If Chums prostate is large and continues to get larger - it will be your only option to get back to normal since it's the testosterone causing it

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Frank will be 6 in July. We also never neutered Frank because I didn't want to risk putting him under either and I never had a vet I trusted. I never thought he would run into these problems but it was very scary to see him bleeding so much and it was something that we just had to do. I was terrified of putting him through surgery, especially with his past breathing issues, but luckily he did very well and is recovering well.

    Erin I am the same FTSE is four and half and we have not had him nurtured for the same reason. So very happy to see Frank is doing well as its so flaming scary when they go under.

    I just read the whole thread and I'm so glad everything went well and Frank is on the mend! @Chumley Enlarged prostate can lead to all kinds of troubles, so anesthesia is the smaller evil in that case.
