It's been a minute since I've posted an update on Mooby. After our first go at the myringotomy failed (Mooby's ear canals were too stenotic to get to the eardrum) the doctor put Mooby back on Prednisone (5mg daily) and a steroid ear drop (synotic) to try and get the canals to open enough to perform the myringotomy. Well, Mooby was on the steroid regime for 5 weeks -- in that time she had tons of stuff coming out of her left ear. At one point what looked like pieces of beef jerky (sorry for the gross visual) and other times blood (yes, bleeding from inside her ear somewhere). Of course I took her to the vet every time and they just had no idea. Anyway, we went back to retry the myringotomy yesterday and even though they thought they could do it this time, they didn't... AGAIN. They said her ears are still too stenotic, perhaps that's just how she is made, with very narrow ear canals. The doctor did take pictures in the ear, and in the left she noticed some tissue flapping around -- she wasn't sure what it was. After the procedure she said she suspect Mooby does not have a left eardrum. Weird, but I guess that happens?
This morning I noticed Mooby is bleeding from somewhere inside the ear, again. It's not gushing by any means but looked like it was a steady drip at night. I really am at a loss for what to do now.
Mooby also seems to be scratching a lot more -- even though she's on the gabapentin and prednisone. In fact she's creating a bald spot on the left side. I really don't know if the scratching is from the SM or whatever's going on in the ears... Maybe the ear stuff is caused by her Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia... maybe not? I just don't know.
All I know is I need help. Is there a doctor out there I should call? What can I do?
