Dr. C recommended immediate surgery, because he said tumors usually grow quickly in cats, even if they are benign. He doesn't think there will be any problems or complications, and as long as there isn't a lot of drainage, Rascal should be able to come home by the afternoon. Hopefully the tumor won't be malignant.
Rascal is almost 8 years old and in otherwise good health. Still, I can't help but worry about it just a little. I'm just thankful he is in good hands.
I just got a call from Dr. C. Rascal is out of surgery and in recovery. Dr. C was very pleased with how well the surgery went. He said it is one of the few times he is happy to work with a fat cat, as they also need to remove as much tissue around the tumor as possible. We will get the pathology report back on either Friday or Monday.
