Hi everyone: I'm new to this forum. I have a bassett hound named "Angel." She is 9 years of age. She is adoreable. She had an enucleation (removal of the right eye, due to chronic glaucoma) done at the end of January. She has since developed a cyst, due to complications from the surgery. She now has to get the cyst removed, surgically, which means they have to go in and open up the eye and remove the cyst and sew her eye back up. I hate having to put her under anesthesia again. Apparently, the opthamologist said that it is very rare for a dog to develop a cyst on her eye after the eye surgery. Does anyone have information or experience with this situation????
Thank you for any responses. Cheryl

Thanks Cindy for thinking of Angel. Her surgery will be in 2 1/2 weeks. I would post a picture, but don't know how.

Thank you for the words of encouragement Beverly. I'm glad to hear that your Francis and your friend's bassett are doing well after their enucleation. Angel did get a prosthesis put in during the enucleation (just so the eye would not cave in) but her eye is sewn up. We have scheduled the surgery in two weeks and I pray that she will be okay. She is such a good girl and very happy.

Hi everyone:

I took Angel to my regular vet and he decided to drain the cyst on Angel's eye (she developed this cyst after the enucleation). He drew like a clear fluid out of it. It has since grown back. She may have to get it removed eventually, but for now, they may be able to drain it a few more times. You just hate to put your dog under anesthesia just to get a cyst removed if they can remove it themselves?
