Has anyone had surgery for PSOM on their baby?
As most of you will know, we didn't have a very positive Neurology appointment yesterday.
What I would like to know is, have any of you had surgery for PSOM (which is linked to SM) performed on any of your babies and if so, what was the outcome and did it have to be repeated?
I have virtually made up my mind which way we are going to go on this but am just interested in anyones experiences.
Mr Skerritt and my own Vet both say that it is likely to have to be repeated and most often, more than once. However, Mr Targett and Ms Sturgeon (soft tissue surgeon) both say that if it is performed properly then it will only have to be done once.
It is quite a gruesome surgery too :( they bore a hole under the eardrum which is about 1/2cm in diameter and then scoop out the debris and flush the hole out :shock: . I don't know whether they go in from the side of the face or inside the mouth, I didn't ask I was a bit shellshocked at the description :shock:
So, anyone had any actual experiences of this? I have myself had yukky things done to my ears without much success & one of my friend's hubbys was left in a worse comdition after an extremely similar operation.
Charlie can't talk to me and I think he might have enough problems already without having a very painful and delicate operation performed on him :(
