    Default Never had to ask for jingles before..moved to Horse Care, see # 37

    I rarely start new threads, generally just read and comment when I feel I have something (hopefully) of interest to add.. but my 19 year old Arabian Willie is going to Blue Ridge Monday morning -most likely for partial penile amputation due to SCC. I found the growth last Saturday, and we are still awaiting the pathology reports from Cornell, but the vets are fairly certain that is what it is. We did a total blood work, and everything is fine. He is in great shape, in fact we had our very best dressage lesson ever last Friday, the day before I found the growth. The vets feel the prognosis is good if they can get a clean edge, so we have opted to give him a chance. So I would really appreciate some COTH jingles for my boy.

    Big jingles for your boy. Who is operating? Dr. Stephens is excellent. Very, very thorough. I don't know the other surgeon, but have heard good things. Hang in there.

    Thanks for all your kind thoughts! I don't know how to quote and all that, so I'll just answer questions best I can.
    The surgeon operating from Blue Ridge is Dr. Trostle. Tabby and Julia from the Valley Division have been our vets for a long time, and Julia examined him here.
    The symptoms were that Willie walked over to get breakfast right after passing urine and had not "put it away" yet. (YIKES - I am so sorry that this is not a pleasant topic, but if it helps someone else, then.....) I immediately saw what I can only describe as a "turkey gobbler" growth approx an inch long and 1/2 inch wide hanging off his penis about 1/2 inch from the tip. We scheduled a vet appointment for Monday. (The last time I "checked him out" was when we returned from a trip mid June - I thought everything looked a little too bright pink, but that was all. Willie is a very private guy - the TB's we have forever are wingin' it all around, but not Willie. ) Since then, some of the "tumor" has fallen off, but the "nub" is still there. So we are taking him Monday morning to let the surgeon examine him, and will see where we go from there.
    Thanks so much for your jingles - I've often given them, but never thought I might need them.

    Jingles from Indiana!

    A lady that I know had the same procedure done on her aged Morgan gelding. She was meticulous about his aftercare and he recovered quite well.

    I want to say those tend to be very local, so with good margins, you should have a good recovery!! I hope I remembered right and it means good things for Willie!
