Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery cost for dogs


Avatar f tn He was on stool softeners 50 mgs twice a day since first surgery. Surgery helps but it can always come back. It cost $2000 first surgery and $1500 for 2nd. This is major surgery no quick job. Read up on it it does not go away only gets worse without surgery. Even after surgery it can collapse again. If your pet is older it's best for both of you to have him put to sleep. The dog should always be on stool softener the rest of his life.
754744 tn?1233853250 It is so terribly difficult to make decisions on major surgery or other treatments when our dogs reach their senior years. It does sound as if your dog won't last very long at all without treatment, so you are left with the unhappy choice of chancing surgery or euthanizing. There really isn't a wrong choice in this situation. Exactly what sort of surgery is your vet recommending, or have I misunderstood?
Avatar n tn I had spinal fusion on my L5 5 weeks ago, and i am now hurting now more then i ever did before surgery. My Doc said he had the surgery and was back to work in 2 weeks. At 2weeks for me i was hurting so bad i thought i had messed up my fusion. So i went to see my my doc and had an xray and was told it was fine. He gave me a RX and said it was my last one. So i have had nothing for pain since 3 weeks after surgery.
Avatar f tn These anesthetic episodes with the diabetes can be difficult with eating and insulin, the area being bad without a lot of loose skin, and healing is never great for diabetics. Cataract surgery last Nov was very stressful for her. There is also her age. My real question is what the chances are of these cells having spread internally. I can say that the diameter of the tumor has not increased so much as the depth of projection has, whatever that means!
Avatar dr m tn Since the late 1970s the definition and etiology of chronic testicular pain following vasectomy has been evolving, as have the names for this syndrome, including postvasectomy orchalgia (Shapiro and Silber, 1979), late postvasectomy syndrome (Selikowitz and Schned, 1985), congestive epididymitis (Schmidt and Free, 1978), chronic testicular pain (McMahon et al, 1992), and postvasectomy pain syndrome (McCormack and LaPointe, 1988).
514916 tn?1224521687 #1 Vet said, could be shot reaction, or stress from coming to vet, or she has a hernia and vet said she pushed on it quite hard so could be pain Next day chi is not in good shape, called #1 Vet to schedule her for hernia surgery thinking shes in pain and requested pain med for her, #1 Vet said, shes busy for next 2 days, take her to another vet or hosp which opens in 4 hours. that pissed me off!!!
Avatar f tn I have a bichon/shih tzu mix, but I also have 5 bunnies. It's definitely a normal behaviour for dogs. We highly discourage it because quite frankly, we find it disgusting, even though as ginger899 pointed out, its just grass and other plantes (in our case, hay and pellets). I don't see it as being a health problem. As long as your dog is routinely checked by the vet. And I'm sure you'd notice if something was unusual in your dogs' behaviour or droppings.
Avatar f tn I am an animal lover and had a wonderful sweet daschund who was sweet faithful and loyal. When I had hernia repair surgery, he never left my side except to go out and do his business. Unfortunately, while I was washing my shitzu, the dashund got outside and was hit by a car. (Son accidentally let him out while he was bringing the shitzu in.) I was traumatized. I cried my eyes out and within 4 days I had a new daschund puppy.That dog was the laziest, slowest learner I have ever encountered.
Avatar m tn Oh great. We just paid $3,500.00 for eye surgery and now we get to go pay another $200 for an ear infection. I decided to give it a day or so to see if it was just from the hair plucking. Within a day, her ears were still red and swollen and it almost looked as if there were some... thin blisters on her ear skin. I began giving her Benadryl at night.
519226 tn?1378994921 We worked hard for everything we have and never asked her or anyone else for anything. She has deep psychological issues for sure, but will never go for help, since she says "it's everyone else, not her that has the problem". She thinks there is nothing wrong with her. In addition, she is extremely paranoid, thinking that everyone is scheming against her or talking about her. (That's probably because that is what SHE does!
182493 tn?1348056515 Prior to that I had been drug free for almost 6 years after a short but horrendous battle with heroin. I worked at a rehab for 3 of those years. I really should have known better this time around.. but like I have said before I took my will back.. I have struggled tapering for a few months had everything bad happen possible from bronchitis, root canals and two broken toes in the mean time that lead me to not fully put the pills down..

Avatar n tn Dave, I also have had a hiatal hernia for about 7 years. I have Gerd too. I've been on prilosec for about a year now. I went for a blood test last week and the results were that my liver enzymes were elevated. I'm wondering if the prilosec could be doing this because I don't take any other meds.
485259 tn?1326312778 Be careful with that because many fiber foods also cause gas. You'll have enough of that floating around from the surgery. For me walking around helped the most. It's not easy to get up or sit down but once you're in an upright position, just move forward.
Avatar m tn I have been on everything you can think of except surgery, such as Allegra, Claritin, Nexuim, Aciphex, Allergy shots for two years, many nasal sprays and etc. Never had any luck with any one or combination of a few. THEY JUST DIDN'T WORK. I was so hopless and thought my life was of low quality due to this untreatable problem. I bothers me all time even in sleep, I could wake up because of mucus' abstructing my airway. NO HOPE, AND NO CURE.
620923 tn?1452919248 if so collect them as the Pet shops charge a fortune for them...and dogs love them...they do not splinter like bones, but have the marrow....My DD got some for her puppy when up in Maine very inexpensive up there...so if u know hunters that see these along the trails pick them up...another way to make $$.....ot save some for ur DD's dog.
Avatar n tn 00 that he has fibrosarcoma. I just stood and cryed !!! I was given the option for surgery but the doctor told me that it would not do any good because the tumers would just return, it would be better just to allow Tigger to live his life out with a good time. So I have decide do just love him and allow him to live his life out as God see it. Please pray for our loving animals!
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Hernia surgery and gall bladder surgery are often associated with adhesions. This can cause severe pain that is felt more on certain movements and not diagnosed by traditional diagnostic tools. What needs to be done is an exploratory laparotomy and cutting the adhesions. Discuss this possibility with your doctor. Since your liver enzymes are raised, possibility of liver infection is there. An abscess in the liver at the site of surgery could also be the case.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
313676 tn?1201421249 i heard of a woman i know who is very blessed and has 4 babies she grabbed her 6 month old and threw him out the front of her house and left him there in the rain for 2 hours till she called DOCs to come and get him saying she never loved and never wanted him ( meanwhile she is 4 months pregnant again!!!) AND YET my baby was taken ???? AM I CRAZY ??
Avatar n tn ) I know many want to continue on a path of destruction while looking for a magic pill or surgery that will make there addictions possible, but friends please listen, wake up and examine your life! You just might not be able to handle as much coffee,soda,acidic-fatty food, alcohol or Drugs like alot of people can. I do have an amazing old time cure that will help ALL OF YOU THAT TRY IT, but I pray that you make serious life changes with food and drink and get on the right path.
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
Avatar n tn I had L5S1 surgery in 82. I am now 62 years old. The surgery was successful for 24 years and then I started having issues again. Four years ago I had an MRI that showed no problem. I gradually got better, then 1 year ago I started getting a stabbing pain at the top front of my right fema, this was followed by not being able to raise up my right leg without excruciating pain. I had another MRI and a bone scan.
Avatar f tn It took two years to research, find orthodontists, find a surgeon and lobby my insurance. Then at the end of 2005 I get braces for surgery (which cost 1500 dollars more than regular because you get 4 little extra hooks put on before surgery...) Then the surgery in 2007 and another in 2008 to fix the nose.
192055 tn?1263559137 I have had a Phlegm problem for the last 18 months (Open Heart Surgery with Congestive Heart Failure). I have been on a number of medications that I believe have caused this problem along with dry mouth when I sleep. I also have drug-induced Lupus that mimics Rheumatoid Arthritis mainly in my fingers and wrists that moves around about every 3 days. There are an awful lot of side effects that go along with drugs. Please do the research. There has to be a reason.
Avatar f tn as also the vet wants to give her a few more days to build up her strength for the surgery to fix her jaw. We know that there is still much progress to be made.
Avatar n tn I have severe SVT's (Supraventricular Tachycardia) heart problems in which I take medicine for 3 times a day. I was born without a tear-duct in my right eye, which I have had surgery for, and I was born with no eye teeth. I believe that these are all malformities/birth defects caused by the Bendectin that my mother took while she was pregnant with me.
Avatar n tn I had surgery to remove the cysts, adhesions, a uterine suspension and , forget what its called, moving and encasing the ovaries. All of this to say, after the surgery the dr put me on Bactrim DS twice a day for 10 days and then once a day for a month. I had no trouble for months after that. Since then (last May), I have had 2 UTI-ish episodes but that is amazing for me. I think the extra long course of Bactrim is what helped the most. Some drs are hesitant to do this.
Avatar n tn For me it came with diarrhea of varying severities that would last for weeks. Pork, in particular, exacerbated this. Even kosher hotdogs cost me my freedom! There are simple blood and urine tests though there seem to be presentations of this disorder which doctors have yet to study with this family of disorders. My tests suggested a very low level of this material in my body and should thusly mean minor symptoms... but a winters afternoon in the shade would net me weeks of toilet time.
