Benny has cancer, need advice

Tue Jun 30, 2015, 11:11 AM
Of course upward trends don't last!

Benny, my cat, had a lump in her neck on Saturday, so I made an appointment to get her checked out for today. I thought maybe it was a cyst or an abscess, cause we've been fighting fleas and I wondered if it was just an infected bite.

Nope, it's Lymphoma.

They recommend surgery (which I am going to do) to remove the mass. I just got approved for Care Credit, so her surgery will be covered at least. They recommend chemo too, but I have no idea how chemo affects cats.

See, grandma, mom, dad, my brother, and my boyfriend all have/had cancer. I lost mom and grandma, so I am not a stranger to caring for someone with cancer or what to expect.

It's different when it's a cat, who can't really say verbally if they are in pain or if they don't feel well.

So please, if anyone has had to get chemo for their pets, please let me know. I got some questions that really is better asked to people who went through it. I just want to make sure I'm making the right decisions for her, and chemo is brutal.  

I'm...okay. My higher dosage of medications means I can look at this rationally but it's like containing a tsunami in a cup. I'm not going to lie, this is awful. But I can face this. I'm more worried about Benny.

So if there's any vets out there or people who've been through this before, please let me know cause i could really use some advice!

Thanks guys :,)
