After the surgery he did ok for maybe a week and them he was vomiting and diarrhea after everything he ate and drank and very bad pains again. My friend who had her gall bladder out said to tell the GI doctor its bile reflux. He is on medication for that. Was doing great and was able to back to school this year. He hasn't been to school this entire month. He has horrible diarrhea and severe abdominal pain again. Immodium isn't helping. He says he feels like he is dying with the pain. He says it urts to eat. Doctor says it's IBS now. That's what they say when they don't know what's wrong.
I assume they've checked him for Crohn's? Other than that I'd have no clue. Hopefully he feels better soon, and they figure out what's wrong.
Gotta love blanket diagnosis like that, thank goodness they don't have many of them anymore. I was reading about hysteria and everything it covered 100+ years ago, nearly anything wrong with a woman.

My poor rottweiler just stood there wondering what she did wrong. Lol I thought some masked murderer was coming to kill me lol.
Sonya (our current Lab) has done that many times, and then she climbs in with me. She jumped into the tub with me when she was about 12 weeks old. That was interesting, Gavin was finally asleep so I decided to take a nice long soak, finally relax with my eyes closed. Next thing I know I'm wiping water outta my eyes and she's just sitting on my lap/stomach looking at me as if to say "I love ya Mom. I was lonely"...Be nice if I could get "someone" to remember to close the door when he leaves the bathroom

Yep, and he certainly has a knack for knowing just when his momma needs a good laugh.
Gonna need another soon...
Had to take one of my parents' dogs to the vet today. (Now my parents sleep with Sophie (a pom), 3 beagles and a lab in their bed and an occasional cat or 3.) I guess what happened was the beagles decided it was time to play early this morning and Sophie snapped at them. When she did that one of the larger dogs grabbed her. She hid under my parents' bed until about 1700, when I finally coaxed her out and she was dragging herself using only one paw. She has three puncture wounds on the back of the neck near the spine, is not walking/standing, and has no correction reaction in 3 outta 4 feet (you bend the foot backwards at the wrist/ankle area and they should correct it right away). Vet and I agreed that an x-ray most likely wouldn't show any damage, as it's probably all soft tissue damage. So we have her on an antibiotic for the bite, a pain med, a muscle relaxer and an anti-inflammatory. If she shows improvement by Sat she "may" recover, if no improvement or she's worse it'll be best to put her down. It really sucks as she was my Mam mam's dog, until she passed a few years ago, and she's really not that old for a toy breed.
