Dog Cancer Update 2 (Electric Boogaloo)

Hi HLTV, Firstly, thank you for all the support for Rosie, it's been overwhelming. I know it's been quite a while since the last forum post, but I wanted to only post at the larger milestones, and this is one of them. I want to thank each and every one of you individually, but I can't reply to all the comments or the post will get removed as it did last time. I'll try to reply to as many comments as possible without getting the thread taken down <3 We've finally had our appointment with the Oncologist and it's overall good news for Rosie! She's taking the news well with a cuddle imgur.com/gallery/SVSfqWh From the appointment with the Oncologist's and his notes imgur.com/a/QHtrHhm, we were recommended surgery ASAP with two options at varying prices, both with good success rates and chances for Rosie. The first (and more expensive) option is around £3500 which includes post operation appointments/ care, except from chemotherapy. As it stands, we don't know if she needs chemotherapy post surgery, we'll only know once the tumour is sent off to the lab post surgery. This surgery involves cutting away a larger margin around the tumour and removing her tail to use it as a skin flap to cover up the surgery. This is because it's so close to her bum that there's not enough skin to properly cover such a large margin. While we'd all miss her tail, it's undoubtedly the best possible option for her as if she had this operation, there's a 90% chance her cancer never comes back afterwards. The oncologist initially booked this surgery for a weeks time (the soonest appointment) with the option of cancelling in case we can't raise the money for this one. The second (cheaper and more likely) surgery option is around £1500 including pre/post operation appointments and care except from chemotherapy. As mentioned before, we don't know if we need chemotherapy until after surgery, but it's more likely that we'll need it following this surgery option. This surgery would involve a smaller margin around the tumour without the need to use the tail as a skin flap. We've booked a pre-op examination for this surgery with the intention of going ahead with it. The pre-op is just to check her general wellbeing, temperature, re-examine the tumour, and to draw up a plan for the surgery. On the day of surgery, she'll have pre-op blood tests as well as x-ray to check for any additional masses. While this option is a lot cheaper, there's still a good 70% chance that her cancer will never return. After either of the procedures, they'll send off the tumour to grade it to help plan post surgery care. The oncologist estimated that it's a low grade cancer because of how early we caught it, the size of it, and how it's presented. Radiotherapy isn't an option in either post surgical scenario, but chemotherapy tablets are a possibility to kill off and stunt the regrowth of any cancer cells, which would be 2-6 months of daily tablets. [ OTHER PATCH NOTES ] - Reduced goal to £3,000 according to treatment needs - Dog has been buffed with +20% adorability - Given Rosie plenty of cuddles and belly-rubs - Frequently posting on TikTok @rosieposiethedog - Deagle is still better than an M4a4 in CQC (I'll die on this hill if I have to) - Didn't expect Ancient in the map pool, but at least it's a change! [ TLDR ] - 2 surgery options, £3,500 with 90% cancer never returns, £1,500 with 70% cancer never returns - Thank you all for the support, it's amazing <3 Thank you for all the support so far, please continue to follow us through this journey and share Rosie's fight against cancer <3 gofund.me/e7faacd7

Honestly its one of those things where if you borrow that kind of money it can be detrimental. I presume that his family dont have too much money and to borrow a loan like that could put them under huge financial pressure and lose them their house ect. if they have a mortgage

That's the plan, even if it only buys her 2 or more years of a good quality life, it'll have been worth it If the cancer doesn't return, she's expected to have 7ish years of good life Just a good job we caught it early as my partner checks the dog regularly :D

Boggles my mind someone would torture an animal with chemotherapy. Putting poison into an animal that doesn't understand the whole process..big yikes from me. Surgery - fair Enough though. Have you seen a human on chemo? I saw my dad and how his body deteriorated within weeks. Good luck.

We’re hoping we won’t need chemotherapy, but if it’s case of 2-6 months of her struggling in exchange for 6+ years of good quality life, it’s well worth it despite her not understanding the process

Yeah I understand you and I am again sorry that i can't donate anything. I said you should prefer the 90% success rate surgery but of course the 70% is also great rate. I believe she needs surgery to be done soon so waiting for money to raise can be worse for her. Again hoping for the best :)

While it is possible that this is fake, I really don't believe that you would do something like that and even go as far as providing proof. Baiters will bait bro

I mean there's a fair few documents we're not allowed to upload without permission from the vets (which they won't give), but we're trying to provide as much as possible

GL man, my dog ended up having a 2nd degree malignant tumor and she had her left paw amputated last wednesday. They said there’s a 90% chance the cancer will not return so we’re very relieved. Still very sad to see her struggling to walk and crying all the time but atleast it will get better with time and we still get to enjoy her. Praying for u man <3

Fingers crossed, if the surgery goes well and her cancer doesn't return, we're expecting around 7 more years with her having a good quality of life <3

Hey man, just a question: you said you caught the tumor early, but how? Did she change he behaviour or like, she had an appointment and a doctor said she should do a byopsy or something. Idk at all, I'm just quite curious. Either way wish you the best, and for Rosie aswell!

Thank you for asking! My partner and I check the dog regularly, so that's how we caught it before any symptoms etc. By the time you get symptoms, it's usually too late in dogs. She's incredibly good with animals and knows what she's doing. As a result, she pushed the vets for a biopsy and that's how we got the diagnosis, so I'm really grateful for her. Also thank you for the kind wishes <3

How is Rosie doing and also are you now open to any steam offers/trades?

She’s doing well, I posted an update thread as we’ve booked in the surgery. And about the steam offers, we’re still not open to them as we want to keep all the money raised transparent in one place :)
