Lola update: Guinea pig recovery from surgery

Hi, everyone. I suppose I'm overdue for a blog update after my recent ordeal, and I hope I wasn't keeping you all in suspense. I survived the surgery just fine, and have been doing a pretty fine job of recovering if I do say so myself. Of course, it helps to have some fine humans to help my recovering by keeping track of my medication regimen. After getting back from surgery, I was on 6 different medications/supplements:
  1. Meloxicam (for pain and inflammation)
  2. Cisapride (for gastrointestinal tract motility)
  3. Enrofloxacin (for controlling gas in the GI tract)
  4. Trimethoprim Sulfa (to treat bacterial infection)
  5. Tramadol (to control pain)
  6. Critical Care (if not eating well, or to help weight loss)

That's a lot of medicine!
Now I'm done with most of those medicines, which means a lot less plastic syringes being shoved in my mouth. My weight has been down a little lately, and the humans need to check with the vet to find out what my "new normal" should be after the spay surgery that removed the uterine cancer.

Thanks for the nice comments, readers!

  8. Hi,
    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.New Year Resolution I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
    Thanks
