WONDERFUL NEWS for FRANKIE

It was NOT a Mass....   

Here is the Diagnosis:
      POSTERIOR SYNECHIAE of the LEFT eye and DRY Eye in BOTH eyes...
 
 Now what that MEANS....     Frankie's TEARS were OUT OF WHACK
    Tears are made up of three Parts    Mucus, Water, and Lipids.... 
 What LOOKED like an Infection was NOT that...  when the three parts are Not producing in the proper proportions.... it can cause a Yellow Green Discharge...    The Eye Drops  DID help with that, however it did not cure the problem.   
     ( Frankie has ALWAYS had what we call EYE BOOGIES ...   and those were actually caused by his tears not Ever producing in the CORRECT Proportions)  All this time .... I just thought it was NORMAL ... for Frankie.       It was actually a Symptom of the tears being incorrect.
 
    NOW for the "MASS"
 Posterior Synechia Means that the IRIS gets stuck to the LENSE and distorts the Pupil...     It was the RUMPLED and IRIS (BROWN in Frankie's eyes, Blue in some dogs)...    THAT Dr. Hustey and Dr. Welsh saw... and said looked like Brown Cauliflower ...    TODAY the Doctor used some different instruments to look at it and discovered that it was NOT Thick      NOT Growing   and NOT BLACK    Any One or More of those would indicate a Tumor/MASS... which was NOT the Case...          
     THAT condition can be caused by One of Two Possibilities..
1. Previous inflammation INSIDE the eye due to Trauma or Immune Mediated (Body Attacking Itself)
OR...
2.  Previous CYST...  inside the eye...  and THIS is what she suspects it was caused by.       She said that when the Cyst ... Collapses on itself... it PULLS the Iris and causes it to get   STUCK TO THE LENS. 
 
TREATMENT:     He will need to have "DROPS of Ointment" in his eyes Twice a day (Perhaps for Life).       THAT will put the TEARS into the proper ratio.
    The Iris that is STUCK to the Lens will Need to be Monitored...  to make sure it does Not get Worse..   (She does NOT believe it will)  
    We have to go Back to MedVet for a check up in one month.
 
Frankie did NOT have to have an ultrasound of his eye...   Dr. Webb had Several Instruments that a REGULAR Vet. Practice Does NOT have.   It was One of those (I don't know its Name) instruments that enabled her to get a GOOD LOOK at the Stuck Iris.      
 
I can NOT tell you how RELIEVED I am....   I had expected Frankie to lose his eye.    THAT will NOT happen NOW.        I believe that it was the POTP that all of YOU sent to Frankie...that made ALL THE DIFFERENCE In The WORLD.        YOU and your Positive Thoughts and Prayers and KIND WORD...   SAVED Frankie's EYE.
 
He and Ernie were VERY well mannered and Frankie was So EASY for them to Work With.   
     I am both RELIEVED and PROUD.  
 
THANK YOU       THANK YOU       THANK YOU  For Having OUR BACK!!
 
There will be pictures on the Blog... butt NOT tomorrow...   We will be CELEBRATING the GOOD NEWS,  and APPRECIATING  our WONDERFUL FURENDS.

That is good new Frankie! Glad your eye is saved and all you need is some eye drops to help maintain the moisture.

I think this calls for some cookies, don't you?

Frankie, I'm so happy! Think that's worth to open a bottle of bubbling water. And I'm so glad the dark clouds of woe are gone and your whole family can enjoy a wonderful weekend.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Well that does seem like good news, what a relief. And thank you so much for the detailed update. We are wondering if the iris thing will affect Frankie's eyesight at all?
All the best,
Gail and Bertie.
PS One of the collies in our agility club lost an eye at the end of last year, following an infection that was deemed untreatable. One wonders whether it really was untreatable, but that aside, the dog is thriving and still manages to do agility surprisingly well, given the lack of binocular vision.

stellaroselong said...

Okay nows mom can type more than two words cos at night hers has to use her kindle. Wesa so so so happy that you all had good news. You know we all were waiting on the edge of the cliff for news on you Frankie, that is how much we all loves your family. If love could cure all, we would nevers be waiting on the edge would we?!! I have to have eye drops and ointments everyday, Mom says to watch that Ernie doesn't try to lick them out tho, cos that is what the crazies try and often do wif my eyes. That is why I get to sleep wif my momma and daddy more cos that way no one bothers the medicine in my eyes at night....whoohoo....hugs from all of us.
