Tofu Tuesday: Abdominal laparoscopy

On Saturday we went back to the vet to get Tofu checked out again. After a feel about, the vet was concerned about some lumps in Tofu’s belly. Two lumps had been noted in the past but now a 3rd could be felt. Lumps can be bad news. Best case scenario would be lumps of fat but there was no way of knowing what they were without going in. Tofu wasn’t in pain, but he wasn’t eating much and that could have been related.

So yesterday, Tofu was scheduled for an abdominal laparoscopy. A laparoscopy is when they poke telescope through a tiny tube into the body which feeds images of what’s going on inside to a monitor.

I received a phone call from the vet late yesterday afternoon. Tofu was in recovery at time of call, a bit groggy but doing well.

Two fatty lumps were found and removed by surgery. One lump was the size of an egg, the other lump was the size of a ping pong ball. These may have put pressure on his organs as one was beside his bladder and the other beside the kidneys. Hopefully removing these lumps will be the end of Tofu’s bladder problems.

Tofu was kept overnight and I will be picking him up from the vet today after work. I can’t wait to give him cuddles.

Here’s a photo of Tofu yesterday morning, just before I dropped him off at the vet. He sure is a trooper.

    Be well, Tofu! You certainly have the most caring humans in the world. Love from snowy PA where Tiny, the black lop eared rabbit lived in peace and harmony.

  2. It touches my heart your love for this little critter. I hope Tofu is feeling 100% better soon

  3. A speedy recovery for Tofu! Two lumps, one the size of an egg and the other the size of a ping pong ball? That sounds like it must uncomfortable. What a relief it should be to have them gone!
