    Default It's Bentley's Turn-Update

    Greetings EBNers.

    We all (the wife, Bentley of course, and Jewel) went to see the vet for Bentley's follow-up and suture removal. Bentley is three-weeks post-op from TPLO knee surgery to repair his partially torn ACL. Dr. P. said Bentley is mending well and took out his staples. The incision looks good and has healed well. There are a few red spots on the site but that is to be expected. At least there is no oozing of any green or yellow discharge from the site.

    As far as Bentley's seroma...it has gotten bigger, Dr. P. has said it would get worse before it gets better (which has occurred in my book). The seroma was the about the size of a golf ball during our visit on Memorial Day. Now a week later, it is the size of a tennis ball. It kind of reminds me of a water bed in his leg. Dr. P is still not concerned with this and he said you risk the chance of infection if it was drained. We are to continue the warm compresses to the seroma three times a day. Dr. P said it should go down before his next visit in three weeks for xrays and follow-up and the evaluation for increasing Bentley to walking a little more.

    We are glad all is well and Bentley is on the mend.

    Glad to hear he is recovering nicely.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Life with a bulldog sure is like riding a roller coaster!

    Thank you for your update, Roger, I was getting anxious looking
    for one on Bentley, so grateful he's mending well and your Vet is
    happy with his progress.

    Cami & I send hugs, kisses & continued prayers the seroma goes
    down without issue & soon. God bless y'all.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
