Recovering From Surgery YOUCH!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yep.....it's true...things progressively got worse "back there" and last Friday, my peeps took me early in the morning to Dr. Scott for one really horrible procedure....YOUCH... that's all I can say at this moment....I am still on lots of pain meds and antibiotics and today was supposed to be the worst of it according to the good doctor....He better be right, cuz I am SO ready for this to be OVER! 


Here's the deal....I made too many trips to Dr. Scott with problems "back there"....we tried everything...many doses of antibiotics....I kept getting abscesses....not pleasant....we even tried injecting antibiotic gel into the glands....that worked for about three weeks and back the abscesses came!  Doc said it would be best to just remove those glands all together...YOUCH


                              SO that's what we DID!   YOUCH


My peeps and I have a great deal of faith in Dr. Scott, afterall he saved me from that toxic mushroom!  It does seem a bit drastic to remove them all together, but my tail was down more than it was up and that's what convinced my peeps.  Life is just TOO short. 


Hoping tomorrow things start looking UP for me and my BACKSIDE....


 I dare not SHOW you because 1)  It's quite disgusting  2) It's very embarrassing and 3) This blog is G-rated:)  

Furiends, just be thankful your glands work...and for my friends, be glad you don't have any to start with!  Doc said when he removed mine, they disintegrated because they were so badly diseased....YOUCH

  5. Oh My Little Sweet Scrappy. I know you are miserable right now but my doctor (who is as wonderful as your doctor) told me that removing those glands will really make you feel better.

    But from the little you have told us, they must have been awful awful bad. You must have been in lots of pain for a long time and I didn't even get it. So I am sorry for all the pain you are in now and all you have had.

    I will keep you in my prayers and My vickie will too cause we just can't handle you feeling badly.

    Love
    Bert

  6. Dear Scrappy,

    My Typist is looking a bit worried reading your story because my glands don't work so well either. Or actually, they work TOO well and My Cushion had to learn how to *ahem* help me which he does every week or I will *ahem*. My Typist does a lot of laundry.

    I'm a little scared now. Please post pictures. It's okay to see medical procedures ;)

    Big hugs and get well soon x

    1. Oh..are you leaking? I had that going on as well in the beginning...watch for the tail not being up....we tend to put it down more due to the pain...pics would be pretty knarly...but I have a very nice shaved square back there....five stiches at both 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock...and some dissloving ones inside...the surgery isn't bad...it's the 72 hours afterward...and I just got through that...still not "liking" doing my business....YOUCH
