Djangohad his colonoscopy
Well, D had his colonoscopy. He was so out of it when I picked him up. The vet showed me the images taken during his procedure. His colon was beet red from the get go. He has an ulcerated colon and it was pretty bad. In addition, there's major inflammation everywhere. They saw a palip which they removed and that along with everything they came across on the way was biopsied. We should get the results wednesday.
In the meantime, I gave him a pain pill, he was in pretty bad shape. I glimpsed "under the hood" and oh poor guy, it's going to be a couple of days to recover all around. He's on different antibiotics, carafate to coat the belly and of course, all his other meds.
I am trying to stay positive that the results will come back indicating bacterial issues in the colon and not cancer. Whatever the result, my goal is to get him feeling good again. The vet indicated we can't put a plan in place until we know what we are dealing with. Not going to worry about anything until I have to. In the meantime, my goal is to get him thru the night as comfortable as possible. The worst part is he's really gassy but he thinks he has to poop so he keeps going to the door to go outside. Squats like he's doing his thing but nothing comes out, but hopefully he's getting some relief.
Bland diet until next week and lots of hugs and kisses!
