Ocular cancer

This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

I just had my right eye removed today due to a large tumor that was growing inside it. I won't know until next week if it's malignent or binine cancer. My mom assures me that I will get used to having one eye and actually enjoy my second life as a "pirate dog". I'm sure there are many other dog's out there that have had an eye removed and I would be greatful to hear stories of your recovery and adjustment.

fleasha, I had one eye removed and I did VERY well. I couldn't do sharp corners, but overall, I had no problems with just using one eye. I'm praying it's not cancer. hughughughughug

Thanks everyone, I had the surgery on Friday and as of Sunday I was starting to feel better and adjust. I've bumped into a few things but overall I'm starting to act and feel like my old self again. No word yet as to what type of tumor it was, still waiting to find out.

Well the doctor called with somewhat good news. They examined my eye at a lab and it was some sort of melanoma cancer. Fortunately it was all contained within the eye and did not show any signs that it had spread outside of the eye. So basically I should be ok and it's just something to watch and make sure nothing new appears in the future.
