Right, my poor little man has survived 3 weeks of ineffectual treatment from ineffectual vets, he's survived 4 weeks of much more aggressive treatment from a much more capable vet.....he's now survived having the whole flipping lot of scar tissue removed (thyroid etc fortunately not also removed.....) and NOW the poor bun has a post-op fluid collection (seroma if we're getting fancy!!!) So, he gets to continue his depocillin and if it's no different in ten days or so I guess it's back to the vet to open up his wound slightly? Any thoughts?

Sorry i've missed all the background to this, but he sounds a tough little bun, sending him some positive get better soon vibes ;)

Sorry, my memory is rubbish...I remember Petie has an abscess, but I can't remember whereabouts, or if he's had x-rays...Can you give us a bit of a catch-up on what's been happening? :wave:

Further update for Petie...........
2 weeks post op (normal XRs of jaw, spine and knees lots of arthritis but gets round well on them!!!) and Petie's seroma suddenly dissappeared over the weekend!It had been really very large and within a 3 day period completely went. He's eating better (I think alot of what I thought had been eating had just been chewing) and poos are a much better size.
I've stopped his depocillin (hooray no more injections) and dropped his metacam to once daily (more for his arthritis than anything else)
So after 3 months of sick rabbit and a sum of money I don't wish to think about he seems to be well and truely on the mend.
Thanks for all the support xxxxx

I'm back from a week away to find a very mischievious Peter Rabbit.......he's now off all of his medications so finger crossed he's doing well.I had to chase him round the sofa to take him out to bed!!!!!! Munchkin!!!!
Keeping a very close eye on his jaw though, after everything he and I have been through it'll be a very close eye!!!!
Thanks for support xxx
