Mast Cell Tumors...
My dog was recently diagnosed with two different types of cancer, and most recently mast cell tumor cancer. He was diagnosed back in January with sarcomas and and then they found his first mast cell tumor when removing one of his sarcomas. About a month after the removal of his first mast cell tumor he just had another pop up and we got it removed, this one had a lot of veins connected to it and the surgery was a lot more invasive then originally thought before they went in. In the past 5 months had has had about 5-6 surgery’s to remove both his sarcomas and mast cell tumors. At this point I’m pretty much losing it, the constant surgeries,and recovery time really can’t be a great life for him. I just don’t know at what point do I call it and let natures take its course. My marriage and my job are both suffering because all I can think about is him. I’m being tormented by my own thoughts... do I continue to cut him up every month if the tumors continue like they have been and then he die anyway because it’s a grade 3? Do I stop cutting them out and let him be happy until the tumors start to make him sick and then let him go peacefully? Imagining my life without him puts me in such a dark place I can hardly function, but I can’t bear the thought of him being unhappy either.
I don’t know what to do, I don’t know who to ask for help or guidance, I just feel so lost. 😞
Anyone else struggling with this?
