BAD NEWS

Posted on July 28, 2015 at 2:28pm 11 Comments

Hello -

I just wanted to see if anyone has any experience with urethral cancer in a spayed female.  We just found out on Saturday that Gracie has a tumor which will ultimately block her from being able to pee and there is nothing that can be done.  We do have her on an NSAID and are hoping this will shrink the tumor to give her longer.  I really have no idea how long she has with us - she is a healthy 11 year old and is not acting any different than she did 6 years ago....(except the…

Hi Carl - yes, her age is definately a determining factor.  I am getting a second opinion though.  The NSAIDs are more to keep the inflammation of the urethra down....to keep her comfortable and able to pass urine.  ):

I am little confused here. An inoperable tumor on her urethra or bladder? In either event why is it inoperable. Does her age or some other health problem prevent her from being put in sleepy land while the operation is performed? And then there is the NSAID. This is Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug. Just as the name says it is an anti-inflammatory drug. It reduces inflammation and helps with pain. Unless there has been a new discovery, NSAIDs will not shrink a tumor, cancerous or benign. It will help prevent an inflammation of the urinary tract, assuming there is one or an expectation of one.

I would solicit a second opinion. You vet may be the greatest person alive, but this is your baby's life you are talking about. This is serious enough to ask for a second opinion.My curiosity is due to the fact that I had a Basset Hound with the same diagnosis, (tumor on urethra where it joined the bladder.) The tumor was removed with no long term problems.Tarzan was sore for a while but we gave him Tramadol for the pain and he was up and around in a couple of days.

I suspect there may be something other than the tumor that yielded the diagnosis.

Good luck with your ababy.
